It is always appreciated when someone learns a technology from abroad and has taken initiation in homeland. Such efforts sometimes come with many benefits for poor people. Sack technology is such example. Big thanks to Tanveer.

I am interested to know the protocol of the technology, means how to prepare the sack. Seems low-cost and replicable technology. Thanks Mr. Tanveer Hossain. Best wishes.

Dr. Tanveer, thank you very much for the nice article. We know your long-term continuous effort on it . It is really adoptable for landless small-scale farmers and unfavorable ecosystems, that not only in Bangladesh also in other countries. Go ahead.

I am dam sure this work already been done by Padakhep Manabik Unnayan Kendra when Dr. Tanveer was the Manager of Agriculture & Environment Division, Padakhep,Dhaka as well. But I am astonished Dr.Tanveer never use single acknowledgement to Padakhep for this work.No doubt Solidarities INGO is pioneer
