“Oscillo aims to develop affordable farm machinery for small and marginal paddy farmers. One stop solution for paddy cultivation.”
- Prajwal M, Founder, Oscillo

The Entrepreneur

Prajwal M and Shivanand S , schoolmates , obtained physics degree and in Machine Design respectively, co-founded the Oscillo Machines Private Limited to address farm mechanization through indigenous solutions. Prior to this, they have worked individually on science and social impact projects, recognized by Government of Karnataka and LEAD program at Deshpande Foundation.

The Challenge

The decrease in total agricultural workforce, demands an affordable and efficient mechanization. Paddy is labour intensive crop, the majority of agricultural land holders are small and marginal farmers. Transplanting the paddy seedling plays a vital role in the paddy cultivation cycle. Although mat-based mechanization is available in market, adaptation and high price of the new technique makes it difficult to our farmers. The challenge we opt to solve is to mechanize root washed seedling transplantation with much affordable price to the majority of the farmers.

The Solution

Oscillo Machines working on semi-automatic electric root washed paddy transplanter:
mechanization of root washed/non-mat based paddy transplanters for small and marginal farmers of India. There is no need to adopt or to grow special nursery. Traditionally grown paddy seedlings aged between 16-25 days can be transplanted in various soil and water conditions.

The Impact

Impact on farmers:

  • Mechanization can reduce the labour cost by 68%.
  • Income gained by 2000 Rs/acre.
  • The yield increase by 12.8%.

Impact on labours:

  • Eliminating long standing hours and minimizing field work.
  • Income gained by 36% per season.
  • Attracting agricultural total workforce by mechanization.
