EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

An aluminium container or even lighter material and a small pump which can create vacuum pack might be a good idea. There should not be sharp edges and might be a handle to lift will be easy.

It solves the storage and transportation problem and sustainability will improve. Farmers can save the cost they pay for sacks every year.

WHO BENEFITS?

Farmers, environment and container supplier.

WHERE WILL YOUR IDEA BE IMPLEMENTED?

Its not in eligible countries but can be helpful for Monsoon countries such as India, Bangladesh, Nepal. I can implement this as pilot in India because I am from faring family and I am seeing this problem every year.

ARE YOU IMPLEMENTING IN AN ELIGIBLE COUNTRY?

  • No, I plan to implement it somewhere else

EXPERTISE IN SECTOR

  • I do not have experience working in a sector related to my idea

EXPERIENCE IN IMPLEMENTATION COUNTRY(IES)

  • Not yet.

Lot of grains are wasted because of rain in the harvesting season and it costs too much to transport the grains from farm to nearest mandi(marketplace). There are insects which harms the grains and farmers are forced to sell the crops as soon as it is ready because its too costly and risky to store the crop to get higher price.

I am thinking about a lightweight container where it can be used to store and transport the grains to nearest marketplace. It should be easily left in the rain and there would not be leakage and taking grains out or packing should be easy. There should not be any moisture so bugs can infest the grains.

Farmers would be able to stack the container in courtyard or carry the container on tractor or bullock cart.
