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.

WAY TO GO #3
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.
-Love your food, Love your body, Love your world

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.
