CALLING FOR N-BiG MEMBERS TRAINING 2021

N-BiG through its Advisory Service (DAS) currently implements a comprehensive capacity development programme for members, Namibian farmers, industry experts SMEs, and extension services on the topic of sustainable bush control and biomass utilisation with support from MEFT/GIZ Bush Control and Biomass Utilisation Project (BCBU).

Background

Currently, bush biomass assessments are done through different sophisticated methods throughout Namibia such as the BECVOL method etc. Through industry stakeholders’ consultation including farmers’ unions, government extension services such as DoF, DARD, and industry experts with financial support from the MEFT/GIZ BCBU project, a standardized bush biomass quantification model that is easy to use and very specific for the estimation of wood biomass has been developed. The model aims to help resource managers, farmers, public and private extension officials, and researchers to achieve accurate estimation of wood biomass which will inform them to make good decisions.

Furthermore, a Bush Feed Formulation Application (FFA) which is a solution for bush feed producers, which aiming at providing affordable and nutritional balanced rations, lowering the risks posed to animals when the bush feed is formulated on a trial-and-error basis has also been developed. The app is also useful to students in the field of agriculture as well as to nutritionists.
