Biopavart - Best solution for helping the farmers

Let nature do their job

Biopavart is offer solution to helping the farmer for increase rice crop by killing planthopper that consists of machine and bioinsecticide

Use Case

Rice is one of staple food in several country like India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia, etc. It is one of important plant in this world. But planthopper is one of threat on rice that cause damage for rice plant. Biopavart is offer solution of planthopper attack that consist of biopavart machine and bioinsecticide from chrysanthemum flower. It is needed by farmers for killing the planthopper, expecially farmer on tropical country like Indonesia and more effective than traditional method. Whereas chrysanthemum flower extract in addition to bioinsecticide, it can use as mosquito essence, shampoo and cockroach essence or pharmaceutical industry.

Potential

Pyrethrum is one of the best safety records of all insecticides. Pyrethrum is increasingly used to replace organophosphates–a family of insecticides considered to be more toxic. Currently, the world demand for pyrethrum stands at 20,000 metric tonnes of dried pyrethrum flowers per annum. World preference for use of organic and natural insecticides predicts further increase in demand for pyrethrum. They are widely used for veterinary or medical applications, such as in lice and flea shampoos. They are used to fight agricultural pests such as aphids and weevils on crops and flies on livestock. Pyrethrum can be delivered in many different forms such as in powders, gels and spray solutions.

Business Case

Indonesia is one of the countries which is producing the largest rice plant (703.33 million ton in 2014). However, attack of planthopper can decrease of rice productivity approximately 10 to 50% and can cause economic losses for farmers. Planthopper is one of insect which is a destructive pest to the paddy and caused several damages such as plant’s loss of vigor, increase in unfilled grains thus reduce rice productivity. Therefore for keeping the rate of rice productivity, we develop a biopavarta machine combined with natural insecticide to reduce the planthopper invasion. The capital expenditure by the farmer on our product is favored back, with a profit of up to 50% and maintain the rate of rice productivity.

Objectives:

  1. Increase rice production, so it will be more profitable for farmers and can have an impact on improving the welfare of farmers
  2. Helping the farmers to kill planthopper without having to spray the whole rice plant by manual method so it making more efficient
  3. Build business that has great potential on tropic country like Thailand, Bangladesh, and Indonesia

Biopavart is one of solution for increase the rice productivity. As we know, rice is one of main food in the world especially in Indonesia and it’s needed for big amount. However rice productivity in Indonesia is decreasing because many factors. One of them is planthopper attack. Planthopper attack can cause several damage for rice plant such as plant’s loss of vigor, reduction in tiller number, increase in unfilled grains, decrease of rice productivity until 10-50% and big losses for farmers. Therefore Biopavart as solution for helping the farmer. Biopavart consist of machine and bioinsecticide. The blue lamp is one of part biopavart machine and it have function for invite the planthopper. Then, the sensor will detect the planthopper. The sensor is other part of biopavart machine. This sensor have function for detect the planthopper. The sensor which is used in biopavart machine like a light sensor type ldr. The work principle of this sensor is light existence. If the light is reduced, it will activate the resistor. So, the machine will be on off automatically and the sprayer will spray the bioinsecticide to the insects. This concept have big impact for farmers in Indonesia and in future, it is needed improvement.

In the previous explanation, we told you to minimize the impact of pesticides by exploiting natural and biopesticides and taking certain measures such as the rational use of pesticides. Both of them can be realized using biopavart as you can see above.

When taking a conclusion, then global food is an issue that continues to evolve with the times. The longer the growing issues nobody knows, the more profitable or even the opposite, the more dangerous. It depends on our policy, from upstream that is always planting in a good way, to downstream that is always choosing good food and always pay attention to what elements into our bodies. It makes us a global society that not only pursues a time that is getting narrower in the global era, but the main thing is the need to love ourselves, love the fellow beings, and the earth as our place to live by using the way and the good materials in every stages of the process because they will accumulate and will feel the impact, good or bad and sooner or later.

In addition to the human body or the downstream form of food-food eaten by humans, food today is also highly influenced and influential for the environment. In this case there will be a life cycle that continues to rotate over time and will happen accumulation. Good and bad accumulation obtained is determined from the beginning of the given treatment. If food originally grown in the environment using hazardous materials, one of which is a chemical, then provided by the environment is a food that is harmful to humans. Over time there will be some disturbance if the cycle is ongoing. So it's good to start planting again in a good way. Like a proverb - what you harvest the result depends on what you plant.

Food is not only a basic human need, where in conventional thought, without food human will die. But in this modern era food is not only for human survival, but also a culture, characteristic, and lifestyle. This is because the progress of the global era that makes the entry out of information spread more easily with technology. The positive side of getting rushed out the entry of information is that humans are better able to know from upstream to downstream all things about food, so what is consumed everyday is a good food only. While the negative side of the global era of food is a modern lifestyle that makes humans need practicality because of the activity is very solid. They set aside the main meaning of food, that is for survival, in this case is to ignore the elements of that food.

Our Mission

Planthopper attack caused several damage for rice plant such as plant’s loss of vigor, reduction in tiller number, increase in unfilled grains, decrease of rice productivity approximately 10-50%. Our mission is help farmers to increase rice productivity especially on developing countries by biopavart tool and bioinsecticide from chrysanthemum flower. The tool is designed by utilizing light to attract the attention of planthopper and time sensors to spray the bioinsecticide automatically.

Our Background

Biopavart offers a solution to overcome pests in plants, especially on rice crops. Biopavart used biopavart machine and eco-friendly bioinsecticide product from chrysanthemum flowers (Pyrethrum). Team of Biopavart consists of five people with educational background in Agroindustrial Technology.
