Astuti et al, 2018. Utilization of Organic Waste in the Making of Bacillus thuringiensis-based Bioinsecticides as Agents for Control of Caisim Brassica juncea Pests. JLSO 7(2):136-143. Bacillus thuringiensis was one of the entomopathogenic bacteria that can produces toxic crystal proteine (ᴕ-endotoksin). The use of bioinsecticide as a biological agent in pest control was one component of integrated pest control (IPM). The aimed of this reseacrh was to know the population of pests in plants and the percentage of damage to plants that exist in each treatment. The research was conducted in a vegetable garden in the Banyuasin district in November 2017 until January 2018. The research method used a randomized block design with 5 treatments and 4 blocks. The treatment was Bacillus thuringiensis KJ3R5 cultured in coconut water and rice washing water  (A), Bacillus thuringiensis LC2 cultured in coconut water and tofu wastewater (B), commercial Bacillus thuringiensis (C), inorganic insecticide (sidametrin) (D), and water as control (E). The variables observed were arthropod populations on the canopy and ground surface of choy sum (Brassica rapa var. parachinensis or Brassica chinensis var. parachinensis) plants. The results showed that 4 species of pests i.e. Pyllotreta crucifera, Spodoptera litura, Plutella xylostella, and Helula sp. Treatment with Bacillus thuringiensis LC2 (B) resulted in reduction of plant damage by 61%.

Medicinal plants have been very important plants that are responsible in maintaining the health of millions of people in the world  since a very long time. Planting these crops must be carried out on a land that is suitable based on the results of a land suitability evaluation.  A framework to evaluate the land suitability for many land uses is initiated by Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) in the late 1970’s. As the advent of smart phone nowadays becoming ubiquitous technology to solve problems in most settings, such as education, agriculture, medicine, psychology, and many others. This paper is to capitalize such advantage by converting the framework into a mobile app. This solution is hoped to help land users or planners to be more effective and efficient in evaluating their land. An algorithm is employed in the form the Rule Based System (RBS) in a way to construct the framework into bunch of rules that connect each other, resulting the conclusion of suitability. The rules itself are working on some variables, namely annual rainfall, altitude, drainage, soils’ type, pH, flood risk, fertility of the soils, soil solumn depth, etc. This study focuses on three medicinal crops only, which are candlenut, cardamom and onion to be evaluated. Data of agro climatic that were determining the suitability of the crops were developed into general and specific criteria for the plants. A usability model was studied from 40 respondents using the app. It is found that the usability of the app was in “very good” classification, with dimension scores, ranging from 3.79 and 4.22.
