Abstract

As one of the supporters of sustainable development is an effort to fulfill food needs realized through the agricultural sector. However, the current agricultural system mostly uses chemical pesticides, especially in urban agriculture. This is done as an effort to maintain agricultural production and fulfill food needs in urban areas. Even though food needs are met, food security is not yet fulfilled. In solving this problem, the Indonesian Government has created a program that aims at agricultural development, namely Eco-friendly agriculture. Regarding Law Number 22 the Year 2019 Article 48 Concerning Integrated Pest Management, which provides directions such as counseling on Eco-friendly agriculture. In this case, the bioactivity of organic pesticides or biopesticides is the main factor of agriculture. The study is carried out by the Technical Implementing Unit to conduct trials to obtain suitable organic pesticides. The in-silico approach can be used as one of the primary methods to support Government programs. This approach can be used to simulate drug discovery and to determine its bioactivity by performing molecular docking. This study concludes that the in-silico approach has the potential to support Government programs to realize Eco-friendly agriculture as an initial technical effort of the program.
