Technologies for public good are developed and designed particularly for public use and consumption. These are the types of technologies that are freely available for use by all, where no licensing fee and/or royalty is being charged. In this new series called Technology for the People, OneExpert will be introducing local technologies for public good.
This model presents a composition for an ethnobotanical dewormer for native chicken using the powder forms of mature seeds of betel nut (Areca catechu) and ipil-ipil (Leucaena lecocephala) as main ingredients. These plants contain constituents that serve as cheap sources of antihelmintics against internal parasitism. Internal parasitism in native chicken can cause severe diarrhea and high mortality. The formulation can be used for the treatment and control of roundworms, including common large roundworms of native chicken.
