Pandawa Agri Indonesia (PAI), the only life-science-based agricultural company with pesticide-reductant innovation, has announced a strategic collaboration with NAFAS Agri Services Sdn. Bhd. (NASSB) and FGV Agri Services Sdn. Bhd. (FGVAS), a global agriculture and agricultural commodities company based in Malaysia.
Together with FGVAS and NASSB, PAI is introducing WEED Solut-ioN® to the rice smallholder ecosystem through government distribution channels and open markets in Malaysia.
The WEED Solut-ioN® product is designed to reduce pesticide use by up to 50 per cent, leading to cost optimisation and delivering advantageous outcomes for over 200,000 rice farmers in Malaysia. This partnership symbolises the combined support and endeavours of the three companies in fostering a farming environment that is not only healthier and safer but also more sustainable.
Kukuh Roxa, CEO of Pandawa Agri Indonesia, emphasised, “This collaboration marks a significant stride towards promoting sustainable agriculture in the Southeast Asia region. Together with FGVAS and NASSB, our dedication lies in transforming the agricultural landscape through the introduction of innovative solutions that prioritise environmental friendliness and cost-effectiveness.”
WEED Solut-ioN®, a pesticide reductant introduced by PAI, has been supplied to Indonesian farmers and plantations since 2014. In Indonesia alone, the usage of over 3.5 million litres of this reductant has been recorded across various agricultural sectors.
En. Syamshul Khamal Bin Mohd Ramli, CEO of NASSB, affirmed, “In our role as a Government Solutions Partner, we serve as the primary provider of top-quality agricultural inputs distributed to farmers throughout the region.
This collaboration with Pandawa Agri Indonesia, our inaugural partnership with an Indonesian agrochemical company, along with FGVAS, signifies a tangible manifestation of our dedication to advancing environmentally friendly agriculture and maximizing benefits for over 200,000 rice farmers in this nation.”
The introduction of the WEED Solut-ioN® took place during the Seremonial Rapat Agung NAFAS. With oversight of nearly 1 million smallholders involved in various commodities in Malaysia, NASSB is recognised as PAI’s strategic partner in fulfilling its mission of establishing a sustainable agricultural sector.
Kukuh concluded, “This partnership goes beyond the products; it signifies a positive transformation in Malaysia’s agricultural sector. By emphasizing environmentally friendly practices, PAI, FGVAS, and NASSB collectively aim to expedite the transition of Malaysian agriculture towards sustainability, enhance farmer welfare, and promote environmental conservation.”
