Fast forward to February 2007, when Dr. Tuong conducted a seminar with nongovernment organizations (NGOs) to discuss the implementation of AWD in farmers' fields.These initiatives led to the testing of AWD by the Asian Development Bank-funded project "Development and Dissemination of Water-Saving Rice Technologies in South Asia," and the Bangladesh Agricultural Development Corporation(BADC).
On 14 May, a group of high-level professionals, policymakers, and farmers attended a crop-cutting ceremony at BADC's Madhupur Farm, where AWD is being tested during the current boro (winter) season.The Irrigated Rice Research Consortium supported the attendance of Dr. Tuong.
Mr. Md.
Keynote speaker Dr. Tuong described the details of water-saving technology through AWD, and presented impressive statistics that highlighted the advantages of saving water and the associated irrigation costs.The technique was quite new for many of the 90 participants from BADC, DAE, BMDA, and the other NGOs present.After Dr. Tuong's presentation,a discussion was facilitated by BADC Chairman
In another event, Dr. Tuong presented an invited seminar for the scientific community on technologies for efficient use of water in rice production at the Bangladesh Agriculture Research Council on 15 May.
