Khot College : Padmabhushan Vasantraodada Patil Institute of technology, Budhgaon, Sangli It is a 50 lit capacity, refrigerator which is powered by a rear wheel of bicycle. To achieve the required rpm of compressor we provide a larger pulley of dia 20 inch on rear wheel shaft through which pulley we run the compressor and achieved the required output. Steady paddling of bicycle at 14 km/hr. for 30 minutes at an ambient temperature of 35 C, brings down the temperature in box to 8 C.

  37. 37. Milking machines Innovator: Shri Raghava Gowda, Dakshina Kannada, Karnataka • • Manually operated, semi automatic and automatic machines for milking cows which can milk cows using a set of reciprocating vacuum pump and suction assembly unit Machine can milks 1.5 litre to 2 litres per minute. Commercialization • Over 5000 pcs are sold • NIF signed MoU with Suntec Agri Equipements Pvt Ltd, which will sell 6000 pcs per annum through their 55 Agrimart retail outlets and 600 dealer network spread across the country. • The cost of machine is 15-25k
  38. 38. Biomass Gasification System Innovator : Shri Rai Singh Dahiya, Jaipur, Rajasthan • Unique gasification unit and filtering mechanism. Producer gas is cooled by water jacket/heat exchanger, cleaned by a grit filter and a baffle filter • Gasification Efficiency 60 -70%, Thermal efficiency: 25% (tested by MNIT, Jaipur) • Available in capacity 5 -100 kVA, single and three phase - open and closed (sound proof design, having canopy) as per the requirement of customer. • GE helped in value addition. Commercialization: • Over 170 units have been sold in different parts of country; received the single order of 100 units from Meghalaya (over 60 million INR), 30 units already delivered . • Eight units have been exported to South Africa, Kenya, Germany, Italy and Singapore. • Price (15 kVA): INR 550,000 and 650,000 with and without canopy, respectively
  39. 39. Sugarcane bud chipper Innovator: Mr. Roshan Lal Vishwakarma, Narsinghpur, Madhya Pradesh • • The device includes a hemispheric knife actuated by a hand operated lever, which can chipped the buds of sugarcane. The chipped buds can be shown directly in the field or nurseries may be grown Commercialization: •NIF signed MoU with Tata Agrico •Innovator will manufacture and Tata Agrico will market the device through its outlets •A batch of 1500 machines are delivered to Tata’s and they have approved the Quality of the product.
  40. 40. Marine Inboard diesel engine and Z Drive Innovator: B. Mohanlal, Aleppey, Kerala Reversible reduction gearbox Manually tillable Z-drive system The diesel engine directly couples with two reduction gears through flange coupling with engine flywheel. The innovativeness lies in the application of helical gears with inner spline cut with dual sided jaw and dog clutch. This provides the smooth running and better power transmission for the marine diesel engine. To go along with gear box for diesel engine, manually operated Z drive system is developed, which is manually tiltable and can be locked at 90 degrees while landing. It also has reduced the loss of power through horizontal shaft power transmission and result in smooth drive and better maneuverability. NIF signed MoU with Matsyafed Matsyafed gave an order of 100 machine sets – order value of about INR 68 Lakh.
  41. 41. Yuvan Long life Setup with Ensigns Healthcare to manufacture and market herbal teas based on community knowledge • Herbal Tea for Diabetes. Herbal Tea for Obesity. • Herbal Tea for Anti – Ageing. • Herbal Tea with anti –inflammatory properties. •Herbal Tea with Anti – oxidant properties • Herbal Tea for Hypertension.

  45. 45. Herbvate Skin Ointment It is based on the knowledge of seven innovators from six districts: Sabarkanth, Panchmahal, Dang, Mahsana, Patan and Bhavnagar of Gujarat. Herbavate exhibits remarkable properties against eczema and a variety of inflammatory and infectious skin conditions. Communities: The innovators of Herbavate: 1. Amratbhai Shankarbhai Rawal, Mehsana Gujarat. 2. Kunjubhai Kakadiyabhai Bhoya, Dang Gujarat 3. Pujabhai Dabhi, Sabarkantha, Gujarat 4. Karshanbhai Parmar, Sabarkantha Gujarat 5.

  46. 46. Botanicals for Growth Promotion and Insect Pest Control in Agricultural Crops Innovator: Bhikhaji Kaluji Solanki Field Trial Results •Results indicate that the herbal preparation significantly reduced the grasshopper and larval population (H. armigera and Earias vittella ) in Okra plants. • Fruit damage in Okra was also controlled by NIF-BKS, which was at par with Chlorpyriphos @ 0.05%. • Increase of 14 to 69% in number of branches was recorded as compared to control. • Increase of 8 to 44% in the yield was recorded, maximum @ 40ml/L.
  47. 47. Herbal preparation for controlling borers in vegetable crops Innovator: Jokhu Shah Field Trial Results •NIF-JS (6ml) significantly reduced population of H.armigera as compared to untreated control. •A reduction of 52% in mealy bug was recorded as compared to untreated control. •Reduction in fruit damage was recorded with NIF-JS @ 7.5ml/L, followed by 10ml/L dose which was better than the positive control. •Formulation also increased plant height @ 6 ml/L . •NIF-JS showed moderate larvicidal effect against Spodoptera litura and Helicoverpa armigera larvae under controlled conditions.
  48. 48. Herbal preparation for controlling pests in paddy, bajra and vegetable crops Innovator: Kodarji Kaluji Pagi Field Trial Results • The trail was conducted on Okra in field conditions and data of plant hoppers, larval (H.armigera and Earias vittella) population and fruit damage was recorded. •After 48 hours of spray there was significant reduction in the larval population. • Larval population/plant was 2.25 in untreated and 0.0 in NIF-KKP (25 ml/L) and Chlorpyriphos treated plants. •The herbal preparation also caused reduction in fruit damage/plant as compared to untreated control.
