Rice Planting Guide

For rice farmers: two (2) kgs rice seeds is in fact more than enough for a one (1) ha rice field using modified
SRI rice planting method. Wider spacing @ 40 cm x 40 cm distance per hill single dapog seedling (not more than 15 days old rice seedlings).

For sugarcane farmers: three (3) lacsas 3 buds setts is in fact more than enough for a one (1) hectare sugar land using SSI sugar cane planting method. Wider spacing @ 120 cms x 30 cms distance per hill.

More with Less! More yield with less production costs.

Given:

1. one rice grain is .025 gm average wt. Therefore: 1,000 gms ( 1 kg)/.025 gms = 40,000 rice grains more or less. 40k rice grains (2) = 80,000 rice grains in 2 kgs.

2. .4 x .4 planting distance per hill = .16 sqm area. Therefore: 10,000 sqm (1 ha)/.16 sqm = 62,500 hills or seedlings.

3. Acceptable germination rate: 90%. Therefore: 80,000 rice seeds (.9) = 72,000 germinated rice seeds minus 62,500 hills or seedlings needed for a hectare rice land = 9,500 excess rice seedlings.

4. Rice seedlings age: 8-12 days old dapog (not more than 15 days old)

Facts about Ebola

Key facts

  • Ebola virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in
    humans.
  • The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission.
  • The average EVD case fatality rate is around 50%. Case fatality rates have varied from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks.
  • The first EVD outbreaks occurred in remote villages in Central Africa, near tropical rainforests, but the most recent outbreak in west Africa has involved major urban as well as rural areas.
  • Community engagement is key to successfully controlling outbreaks. Good outbreak control relies on applying a package of interventions, namely case management, surveillance and contact tracing, a good laboratory service, safe burials and social mobilisation.
  • Early supportive care with rehydration, symptomatic treatment improves survival. There is as yet no licensed treatment proven to neutralise the virus but a range of blood, immunological and drug therapies are under development.
  • There are currently no licensed Ebola vaccines but 2 potential candidates are undergoing evaluation.
