PROJECTS

  1. Development of a Low Cost Evaporative Cooling System for Storage of Fresh Tomato

    Funded by: University Grants Commission (UGC), Bangladesh

    Position: Project Director

    Description: The main objective of this research is to develop an energy efficient and environmentally friendly low cost evaporative cooling system for storing tomato over an extended harvesting season.The specific objectives are: • Design and construct of a low cost evaporating system • Construct a suitable storage structure for storing tomato • Fabrication of temperature and humidity sensor modules for recording environmental conditions • Remote monitoring of the internal environment of the storage structure

  2. Investigation of the Characteristics and Risk Factors Associated with Fetal Farm and Agricultural Injuries in Bangladesh

    Funded by: Ministry of Science and Technology, Bangladesh

    Position: Principal Investigator

    Description: Overall objective of this research is to investigate the characteristics and risk factors associated with agricultural fatalities and to develop as suitable structure around the tractor operator to prevent farm injuries. Specific objectives are: • Investigation of the characteristics and trends in farm and agricultural fatalities in Bangladesh • Identification of a wide range of risk factors associated with farm and agricultural fatalities • Development of a protective structure to minimize roll-over fatalities of agricultural tractor operator • Recommendations for immediate or preliminary steps to ensure the safety from agricultural injuries.

  3. Effect of Temperature and Humidity on the Storage Life of Fresh Tomato under Evaporative Cooled Storage Structure

    Funded by: University Grants Commission (UGC), Bangladesh

    Position: Principal Investigator (PI)

    Description: In this research, maintaining of deferent levels of temperature and humidity would be achieved for evaporative cooling system that could be effectively using for other fruits and vegetables.Effect of different temperature and humidity levels on the storage of tomato could be found from this research. So that appropriate temperature and humidity could be selected during storage of tomato under evaporative cooling system.

  4. Design and Development of a Manually Operated Garlic-Clove Planter

    Funded by: University Grants Commission

    Position: Principal Investigator (PI)

    Description: This research was aimed to design a manually driven single row garlic planter for planting garlic­cloves. The ground wheel diameter of the planter was 39 cm? the metering unit was with a vertical disk of 20 cm diameter and 0.8 cm thickness and 6 spoons were placed on its periphery maintaining a distance of 10 cm from spoon to spoon. Height, width, and thickness of the spoon were 2.5, 1.25, and 1 cm, respectively. The power was transmitted from ground wheel drive to metering plate by means of sprocket set arrangement. A rectangular plot of 26 ft. length and 6 ft. width was selected for preliminary evaluation of the planter. The planting depth of cloves was found as 5 cm, row to row and seed to seed spacing were found as 40 cm and 10 cm, respectively. Performance of the planter showed an efficiency of 61% with germination rate of 73% and missing hill 11%. This planter was designed for single row manually driven purposes? further improvement will be made with mechanically driven devices.
