"Innovations were born by reading, the difference between mango farmers who read and those who did not read was seen from their harvest. If in one harvest, the farmer harvests a lot of mangoes, then it is the farmer who reads and discovers mango genetic engineering from the book he reads," Syarif Bando explained.

"We are trying to support library and e-library in schools throughout Jakarta so that it can be used in a conducive manner," he explained.
