To Reduces Pesticides and Increases Farmer Productivity by up to 40%

Jakarta, August 10, 2022 – Pandawa Agri Indonesia (PAI), an agricultural company with pesticide-reducing innovations, develops an end-to-end sustainable agricultural ecosystem in Mbay, Nagekeo Regency, East Nusa Tenggara. The Mbay Natural Rice Ecosystem Development is one of several other initiatives developed by PAI for smallholders in Indonesia.

Kukuh Roxa, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Co-founder of PAI, said, “We always strive to produce products and services that can help us realize the company’s vision to create sustainable agriculture. We see the development of this smallholder ecosystem as effective and efficient in transforming food production systems to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable.”

The company, which was founded in 2014 in Banyuwangi Regency, started innovation by inventing pesticide reductant products that can be used by farmers to reduce the dose of pesticides needed to dissipate pest attacks on plants. In 2021, PAI began to develop an ecosystem for smallholders and brought PPAI (Plant and soil health, Productivity, Assistance, and Innovation) technology to support the initiative.

PPAI technology is specifically designed to meet the needs of agricultural communities in certain geographic areas and for particular commodities. In Mbay Natural Rice Ecosystem Development in East Nusa Tenggara, PPAI technology applied includes Seven Interventions: certified seeds, complete micronutrient, mycorrhizae, silica fertilizers, straw-decomposing microbes to increase organic elements in the soil, as well as herbicide and insecticide reductants.

The positive impact created by PAI also received appreciation from the local government, including the Regent of Nagekeo. “Mbay has great potential to become the center of rice production in East Nusa Tenggara. We have 5,000 hectares of rice fields, and rice from Mbay has always been known for its superiority. However, in recent years, productivity has tended to stagnate and decline. The assistance provided by PAI has proven to be able to improve the quality and quantity of harvested crops so that farmers’ incomes increase and food supply in the region is secured,” said the Regent of Nagekeo, dr. Johanes Don Bosco Do.

The development of the smallholder ecosystem is an integrated practice that is considered to strengthen the regional economy. The Head of Bank Indonesia’s East Nusa Tenggara Representative Office, I Nyoman Ariawan Atmaja, said, “The Mbay Natural Rice Ecosystem Development is an incredible practice and should be escalated to the national level to serve as an example of a regional inflation control program. In the future, it is hoped that more regions in Indonesia can develop closed-loop ecosystems like this with diverse commodities.”

As a company that has the vision to create sustainable agriculture, PAI consistently presents various innovations to create an agricultural industry that is not only profitable but also environmentally friendly. To date, pesticide reductants, PAI’s flagship products, have contributed to reducing up to 2 million liters of pesticide use in Indonesia and Malaysia.

“We hope this initiative can gradually reduce the residue of synthetic inputs, improving the quality of the agricultural environment in Nagekeo. We also hope that PPAI technology can support farmers in Mbay to live up to their maximum potential and increase agricultural productivity and farmers’ income,” Kukuh concluded.
