    Blue-green algae for rice production. A manual for its promotion

    This manual is designed to give detailed, practical advice on the various methodologies of organic recycling. Blue-green algae form a self-sufficient system which is capable of fixing atmospheric nitrogen in organic forms and which grows upon a free water surface. It is thus ideally suited for propagation in rice fields. The development and use of blue-green algae require special techniques. The manual summarizes the present status of algal biofertilizer technology for rice with practical inform ation for its adoption by agricultural extension personnel and subject matter specialists. If properly extended, the technology holds the promise of providing 25-30 kg N/ha every season to the growing crop. It also holds the promise of generating rural income and employment. The ultimate success of the technology depends not only on creating an awareness but also on building a trained manpower reserve capable of applying the existing knowledge and carrying out further research.

    This manual was prepared within the framework of a technical assistance (TA) agreement entitled “Forest Resources Inventory and Establishment of a forest reference level for REDD+ in Nigeria (UTF /NIR/066/NIR (644170)”, to support the implementation of national forest inventory (NFI) in Nigeria. An NFI is a key component of a measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) system which is a requirement of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for the national forest monitoring system to assess anthropogenic forest-related greenhouse gas emissions by sources and removals by sinks. The results of the NFI will be used to support national institutions to address issues of REDD+ and greenhouse gas (GHG) international reporting obligations. It can be also used to review the policy processes to support sustainable forest management at national level.

    An accurate inventory of forest and tree resources is essential for formulating sound strategies for forestry development. Accurate and up-to-date information on forest cover and growing stock of forests and trees are basic ingredients for planning and policy development. Tree resources outside forest areas or trees outside forests (TOF) can cover considerable areas. Traditionally, TOF were not inventoried and as a result, quantitative information about TOF is scarce. However, besides providi ng support to subsistence economies, these trees form a substantial source of raw materials for forest industries. This manual introduces several aspects of TOF inventories, to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of the tools needed to conduct an inventory. It provides insights into survey methods, describes procedures for data collection, data analysis, and formats for recording data during field surveys. Case studies from various countries are used to illustrate different inventor y methods. The emphasis is on practical and conventional methodologies.
