Desert Research Centre manufactures fodder from farm waste in South Sinai

Prof. Dr. Abdullah Zagloul, President of Desert Research Centre, stated that a project of manufacturing fodder from farm residues, in South Sinai, has begun, as more than one hundred tons of bunicam fodder was manufactured, from the waste of vegetable farms. Also, the cultivation of azolla plant has been expanded, in the farms of El-Tor city, in South Sinai, as an economic alternative to fodder for livestock, in order to face the crisis of fodder shortage and high prices.

Dr. Ahmed El-Hawy, Head of “Feed Production and Processing” program, added that the program aims to manufacture 1,000 tons of silage and feed compost, for farmers, to ensure the availability of fodder on a permanent basis.
