Title: Fuel, Gum, Insecticide/Pesticide and Livestock
Issue Date: Aug-2002
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Fuel- In Indian villages agricultural wastes are mixed with cow-dung and fuel is prepared for cooking and heating purposes. To combat fuelwood scarcity and deforestation problem various programmes are being developed throughout the world. Fuel briquette technology is in use in many countries and is found to be viable and cost-effective method of making fuel from agricultural waste.

Gum- In middle aged persons and sometimes in young also, chronic colitis results into lower abdominal pain, bleeding from rectum with diarrhoea and some related problems.

Insecticide/Pesticide- The seeds and bark of Samadera indica Gaertn. are used in medicine for fever and skin diseases but the insect antifeedant growth regulating activities against agricultural pests are not yet reported.  

Livestock- To maintain softness of meat, proteolytic enzymes like papain, ficin and some fungal enzymes have been used but the quality of the meat needed a watch. Succinylated glycerol monostearate (SGMS) is an approved food additive and is also used as a dough conditioner in bread making.
