Project Name : Eco-Friendly Pest Controller.
Theme Name : Agriculture and Food Security
This is working model of pest controller in which the pests are electrocuted by applying high voltage at low current using non-conventional source of energy i.e. solar energy along with blue LEDs and net circuit. The main objectives are to reduce the use of pesticides and get chemical free food and a safer environment. The blue LEDs are used to disrupt the breeding pattern of pest and to stimulate the plant‟s growth. It is compatible to IPM. Solar cells are used to reduce the recurring expenses of electricity. This has a T-shaped structure when it strikes plant, pest will fly and get attracted towards LEDs and willget trapped and electrocuted. If we promote this invention and support its uses the heavy expenses used for the import for foreign pesticides can be saved and through that we can also save immense national wealth.
