President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo Tuesday (12/14) inspected a food estate and planted shallots with local farmers at Bansari village in Temanggung regency, Central Java province.

On that occasion, President Jokowi said that there are 339 hectares of land to be monitored by Ministry of Agriculture in order to increase the land’s productivity.

According to the President, the most important thing is to prepare the offtakers who will buy the products (shallot) so the middlemen will not manipulate the price.

Furthermore, President Jokowi expressed hope that the Government’s intervention on seeds and land productivity will help increase the farmers’ income.

During the inspection, the Head of State was accompanied by First Lady Ibu Iriana Joko Widodo, Minister of State Secretary Pratikno, Minister of Agriculture Syahrul Yasin Limpo, Minister of Public Works and Public Housing Basuki Hadimuljono, Governor of Central Java Ganjar Pranowo, and Regent of Temanggung M. Al Khadziq. (FID/AIT/ST) (AP/MMB)
