About Innovator :

Shri Gopalbhai Surtia, a grassroots innovator from Gujarat (India) came up with an innovative idea of making cow dung cups for nurseries to grow saplings. The innovation lies in the idea and achieving optimum combination of mixers of cow dung and other natural binders used to make it sturdy and resistant to pest. It is easy to manufacture and an environment friendly product. As an added bonus, it provides employment in rural areas, factors that make it sustainable and scalable within favorable geographies.

Description :

Traditionally, dung is collected being manually or by using hoe and a container. Now a day, it

is difficult to find labour to manage cow dungs in rural areas and the situation is worse in

cities. Today’s younger generation is reluctant to get their hands dirty and the lack of tools or

devices further compounds the problem.

It is a simple device comprising two chambers. The

inner chamber is a freely moving (through pushing

handle) hollow frame structure inside the outer

chamber which is a collection chamber. A flexible

spring connected with pushing rod is provided and

fixed inside the handle for easy steps of collecting and

dispensing dung. The push and back movement

through rod handle facilitates the collection and

dispensing operation of dung. The parts coming in

contact with the dung is made from stainless steel to

avoid rusting problems.
