0 10

P. M. Chaminda  who works in the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau has introduced a new method of planting trees in barren lands at low cost.

An exhibition of plants prepared by him was held at the Ministry of Environment recently (30). Mahinda Amaraweera, Minister of Environment inaugurated the exhibition.

Mr. Chaminda said the plants were grown using discarded helmets, bus lights and other disposable containers, and that the plants were grown using a calcium-rich natural soil. Mr. Chaminda said that at present there is a natural soil deposit rich in calcium in our country and agreed to provide information to the Minister in this regard.

He also said that there are millions of tons of these reserves in the reservoir which can be used for plant growth rather than chemical fertilizers. However, he said that no research has been done on this so far.

The Geological Survey and Mines Bureau has decided to use the low cost planting method introduced by Mr. Chaminda to cultivate saplings in barren lands as well as in the excavated areas after the licenses have been issued by the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau. The Minister also stated that action should be taken.

The Minister said that he would take appropriate action in this regard in consultation with the officials of the Bureau.
