How does your innovation work?
Fighting insect-borne diseases and enriching urban agricultural land by using molasses: a common by-product from sugar factories. This innovation allows the use of one single technology to address both health issues and agricultural productivity. This approach will not only establish disease vector surveillance and control, but can also use the fermentation residues to enrich urban agricultural lands.
