The most important was Bio gas production as it deals with the efficient and optimal utilization of waste materials like cow dung, organic waste and animal waste etc. this utilization not only makes the environment clean but can also be helpful in producing low cost electricity. Upon arrival, the owner of the farm, Mr. Sheikh Shafqat Elahi demonstrated the participants about various sections of the farm. Mr.Shaikh was fascinated with the idea of organic farming, which is quite new to this part of the world. He started with the bio gas plant which can produce up to 50 KW of electricity.This allows the participants to see another opportunity which was the bio fertilizer processing plant. The main raw material of that bio fertilizer is the left over from the bio gas generator. After processing, this fertilizer can be packed and marketed easily. Later on, participants had their hands on nursery management as a specific section of farm was designated to maintain a nursery of good coconut plants. It was really an interesting and informative trip in total for all us. Mr. Elahi was presented with the IBA souvenir in the end on behalf of IBA for his effort and kind gesture.
