A novel plant activator developed by TGG is being used for reforestation in a Japanese ODA project in Senegal, West Africa.
Senegal is located on the coast of West Africa. The northern half of the country abuts the area called the SAHERU zone. This zone, which extends along the southern edge of the Sahara Desert, is an area of serious desertification.
Senegal is not exceptional in being exposed to the threat
of desertification. Toward the south, however, its land gradually
becomes wet. Unlike the Sahara Desert, Senegal's arid area
can provide a rich forest area with an environment in which the moisture
required for plant growth is easily provided. If viable young
trees with many roots, organs essential for moisture absorption, are planted,
there is high probability that they will become established and grow.
It is possible to restore rich, green vegetation to this
arid area of Senegal by careful reforestation and afforestation.
In 2004, this plant activator is being used to prepare 390,000 Casuarina seedlings because of the good results obtained in the ODA reforestation project in Senegal.
