Research and Products News – Innovative Centre for Production Industrially used Microorganism 2 (ICPIM 2) and Expert Centre of Innovative Agriculture (InnoAg) of TISTR successfully developed biocontrol agents from fungi and bacteria with production capacity of 115,000 liter annually. The products are used for pest control by both small-scale and large-scale farmers, to promote organic and sustainable agricultural practices. By incorporating biocontrol agents into their pest management strategies, farmers can adhere to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) standards, minimize the use of chemical substances, and ensure the production of high-quality agricultural yields.

Currently, the products are developed in three formulations: liquid, powder and solid. To respond to varying needs, their packages are also designed in three sizes: small, medium and large. Additionally, a community-level fermentation tank model is introduced to ensure production of high-quality biocontrol agents in sufficient quantities for agricultural applications.

Product highlights: (i) certified by efficiency testing in pest control, (ii) certified non-toxic by ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory in accordance with OECD GLP Guidelines, and (iii) complied with industrial-scale production using standardized semi-industrial machinery to ensure cleanliness and contamination-free processes.

Research and Product News – TISTR by an Expert Centre of Innovative Agriculture (InnoAg) successfully developed three formulas of ‘treated straw’ as cattle feed substitute for grass. These formulas incorporate reduce levels of urea but increase levels of rice bran, resulting in a balanced and nutritious feed. They can demonstrate positive outcomes in cattle growth and give confidence among the farmers in high-quality livestock.

There are three formulas of treated straw: (i) 100 kg of rice straw fermented by water, treated by molasses 10% and urea1.5%, (ii) 100 kg of rice straw sprinkled with water, treated by molasses 10% and urea 1.5%, and (iii) 100 kg of rice straw (local formula), treated by molasses 14%, urea 1% and rice bran 4%.

Benefits of using these formulas of treated straw for growing cattle: (i) to reduce the amount of urea but increase the amount of rice bran in the local formula, (ii) to increase the amount of protein by 11%, (iii) to achieve a weight gain of approx. 300 grams for a cow that consume up to 5 kg of feed per day, and (iv) to ensure the safety and nutritional value of cattle feed.

Research and Product News - TISTR by an Expert Centre of Innovative Agriculture (InnoAg) successfully reused and repurposed ‘packed mushroom spawns’ as materials used for ‘sunflower sprout cultivation’. These reused materials can provide better air circulation than soil, and save the budget for organic fertilizer. When applying it, Trichoderma and yeast can also be added to promote plant strength and plant disease resistance. This innovative material takes 4 days of production time, and costs 300 Thai Baht per a set of culture medium to produce it.

Benefits of using packed mushroom spawns as reused materials for sunflower sprout cultivation: (i) to solve the problem of spoilage of sunflower sprouts caused by plant disease during cultivation, (ii) to affect the greater number of growing sunflower sprouts and their greater weight, and (iii) to promote the optimal use of agricultural waste.

Recommendations: (i) packed mushroom spawns should be crushed thoroughly, (ii) the mixing area should be clean, and a ground pad should be used for fertilizer, (iii) the culture area should be clean, with contamination prevention, and (iv) sunflower sprouts should be regularly watered (morning and evening) to meet their biological need for high humidity.
