JAAS Vice President Chang Youhong, accompanied by Director Gu Hongru of Institute of Animal Sciences and Ms. Sun Lihong from Research Management Division, inspected the test demo station of duck raising on fermentation bed in Modern Agricultural Science and Technology Demonstration Park in Peixian County.
VP Chang visited the duck raising area on fermentation bed, the breeder duck raising area on fermentation bed (under construction), and the experiment area of breeder duck raising on land and in water. The project leader, Prof. Zhao Wei, detailed the implementation of the program of duck raising on fermentation bed. VP Chang spoke highly of the research progress and put forward three requirements:
First, the key raising techniques should be given full attention, and the experiment data should be reliable and reproducible. Also, regulations for the techniques of duck raising on fermentation bed should be drafted as soon as possible.
Second, cooperation with the local government should be strengthened to promote the new mode of ecological duck raising.
Finally, VP Chang stressed the importance and significance of ecological and low-carbon duck raising with a minimum of waste pollution.
