Dr. Farm

Better Understanding for Better Result

Dr.Farm gives a way on determining best crops to plant and its treatments by the soil's characteristics to increase the farm's productivity.

  • traditional farmers

Use Case

Farmer has low understanding about soil's characteristics and best plant to grow in a certain area. Most of the time, they just heed the rule of their predessecor and do the crop's treatment traditionally. To increase their productivity efficiently and effectively, Dr. Farm presents a device that can measure any important characteristic in the soil and surrounding area, suggests farmers about the most suitable plant for it and any of its treatment. Using technologies on detecting temperature, humidity, salinity etc, Dr. Farm will match the result with database of crops and its treatment to suggest the farmers. The database itself will be composed from any knowledges about plant farming from its experts. With just a few procedures of the device, farmers will get the best out of their land.

Potential

With low growth on agricultural's technology, many agricultural problems remain unsolved for years. Our entry in this sector's technology will take our invention as the leading solution for worldwide farmers, specifically traditional farmers, triggering people's awareness on global food and nutrition problem with the help of the media. With open-source technology we use and cooperation with inventors all around the world, we believe we can develop our invention even further. As our connection grows, we'll continue our program to the next stage : creating more invention to solve the remaining problems, encourage people to participate on solving global food problem and even influence world's policy on food problem with enough power

Business Case

Over 80 millions of people in Indonesia work as farmers and most of them are just a small-time traditional farmer without enough knowledge on what they do. As an agricultural country, we can cooperate with our government as our funding to help these farmers with our invention. With more development : full integrated system, automatic pest control etc, we can offer more feature and reach modern big-time farmers. As our Company/program grows and gain more funding, we can offer our invention freely to under-developed country.

Objectives:

  1. Create an invention that can help farmers (spesifically traditional) to better understand their farming land.
  2. Develop a program that will lead to a company which mostly concentrates on solving global food problems
  3. Preparing to realize a world's stable food supply in 2050

Do you know thath 2014 is International Year of Family Farmers? To go beyond this and do a concrete action, UNFAO managed to createa web based tool named Family Farmers Knowledge Platform to help on developing Family Farmers all around the world. Check out the video link to know more about this, maybe you can help in some of those sector :-)

Challenge that needs to be taken in our century, see how FAO(Food and Agriculture Organization) explains about hunger and nutrition problems from 1992 to 2014 with this animated video

Our Mission

We offer a solution to develop an ultimately effective farming using integrated technology to analyze the characteristics of soils and suggest the best crops to plants completed with the appropriate treatment for it. Imagine a high-efficiency farming, here's Dr Farm!

Our Background

The sustainability of environment is a precious asset for human life on earth. However, the uncontrolled growth of human population in these late centuries has caused a self-focused lifestyles. People don't care about the quality of environment. They only think about their own needs. And this condition is getting worse regarding the increasing population growth is in line with the decreasing of land quality. At one point in the future, lands will be able to support human need no more. Based on this fact, our team wants to create a technology to improve the productivity of land farm while also improving the quality of environment by providing accurate data about soil condition, appropriate crops to plant, also best treatment to keep the land providing best quality of things to eat.
