A presentation by “GOLDEN BARN Inc” (GBK) for the Government of Republic of Indonesia Harvesting the Potentialities of World-Standard Rice Production Technologies
Indonesia Agriculture at a GlanceThe agricultural sector in Indonesia reportedly employs over 40 percent of the national workforcewhile contributing approximately 17 percent of GDP. It is one of the pillars of the country’seconomy. Rice is the staple food grain of Indonesia. While ranks 3rd in the world in riceproduction, but also one of the top rice importer of the world.However, in recentyears total riceconsumption hasbeen rising fasterthan production, asthe growth rate ofnational rice areaand yield hasfaltered. Ref: Bangladesh MOA 2011-2012
The ChallengeIn 2012 Indonesia will import around1.45MMT of miller rice. For the 238million people of Indonesia, the status ofits domestic rice supply is synonymouswith its food security and become thebiggest challenge to overcomeThe Solution GBK Turnkey Mechanized Rice Cultivation Project could be the best possible solution to achieve self sufficiency in rice production and ensure food security for the generations to comeRef: Bangladesh MOA and CIA Country Report

The TechnologyHighly Advanced mechanized rice cultivation technology which also known as“Precision Agriculture Technology” ORIGIN OF THE TECHNOLOGY: originated in Japan in 1960, this is the most advanced and proven mechanized rice cultivation technology in the world DEVELOPMENT STAGE: Fully mature technology. Perfected by decades of intensive research. FLEXIBILITY: Any rice variety for any climatic zone can be cultivated, any type of transplanting by various seedling combinations per hill and various spacing is possible. ADAPTED COUNTRIES: Japan, South Korea and Taiwan is 98% mechanized using this technology. China, Malaysia etc are adapting this technology at an accelerated speed
The Technology: Flowchart• Mechanized multi stage nursery operation Seedling Raising • Seedling of optimal consisting seed age are transplanted soaking and seed • After germination trays onto farmers land by treatment to prevent are placed on open mechanized rice diseases field for growing for transplanter• Seed placed on trays upto 15-20 days. and Kept in controlled • Seedlings are rolled environment for as mats and ready for Mechanized germination transportation to the Transplanting Fully Automated farmers land. Nursery
The GBK Model: Major Features Efficient use of resources by saving on labor cost Timely transplanting of seedlings of optimal age Ensures uniform spacing and optimum plant Higher productivity compared to traditional methods No transplanting shock, early vigor of seedling, better tillering and uniform maturity of crop that facilitate timely harvest and reduce harvest losses
GBK vs. Traditional Method Manual transplanting is labor intensive, time With a transplanter, the same work can beconsuming, and expensive, large number of done by an operator & an assistant. Possibleworkers (25-40/ha) required. to transplant more than 2 Ha/eight hours by 4row machine and more by higher capacity transplanter.
GBK vs. Traditional Method Seedling growing requires large area Required very small area (seedling--(seedling--transplant ratio max 1:20/Ha) transplant ratio is minimum 1:400/Ha) Seedling kept in seed bed 30-50 days After 20 days seedlings are transplanted Seedling raised at open field, thus cannot Seedlings are protected by plastic shadingbe protected from natural hazard. during natural hazard
GBK vs. Traditional Method Hand planting results in inconsistent row Mechanized transplanting ensures uniformdistances, hill space, & uneven planting depth spacing, planting depth & optimum plant density Seedling suffer transplanting shock No transplanting shock

GBK Bangladesh Operation: Ongoing Aman-2012 Faster growth, stronger and much higher number of tillers per hill Comparison of mechanized and manual transplanting (left field transplanted mechanically and right field transplanted manually)
GBK Achieving Milestone in Rice Yield GBK achieved 9.8 MT/Ha We have achieved a milestone in record yield in rice cultivation in Bangladesh by yield in 80 days our field trial in BADC Kashimpur farm by cultivating a new GBK rice short duration Inbred rice variety. cultivation The rice was cultivated using GBK in south technology and the official yield was 9.8MT/Ha. Moreover this was Asia and our first field trial and we are South East expecting more than 12MT/Ha yield Asians from this variety. countries
