This is the current Indonesian agricultural statistical data

- 2:06 AM
Indonesia, has a large variety of nature and wealth in various fields. One of the most striking areas is his farm. In this agricultural sector alone, our country has managed to achieve some success in the world. This is not separated from the services of farmers who directly participate in the success of Indonesian agriculture at the International level. From year to year, we can pay attention to the growth of agricultural outcomes to date. Some areas have increased. However, it is not uncommon in some areas where the agricultural sector has decreased gradually. What do you think?

The Indonesian government certainly does not stay silent. To be able to assess and control agricultural outcomes in Indonesia, they collected data over the past few years. As did the new – recently, there have been available agricultural statistics books that review the agricultural data needed.  This agricultural statistical book is about to provide a data series for the last 5 (five) years divided into 4 (four) discussion chapters ranging from the data section of the agribusiness sub-system in the upstream up to the data portion of the agribusiness sub-system in the downstream.

Data and information on the upstream agribusiness sub-system includes data on natural resources (SDA), capital resources are also production facilities. As for the data of the farmer sub system itself includes production data and population. As for sub agribusiness system in downstream, product data of farmers ' exchange rate, gross domestic trade, agricultural commodity, price as well as agricultural consumption. Data of this supporting services sub system includes human resources, agricultural technology and agricultural institutional results.

According to some surveys can also be concluded some core discussion. Such as the year 2018 ago SUTAS 2018 or the 1999 census Agricultural Survey 2018 which is the activity of agricultural survey conducted with the purpose of bridging the data of the census of Agriculture in 2013 and the Census of Agriculture at 2023 and first conducted by BPS. The conclusion of the survey activities resulted in some important points about the state of the agricultural sector in Indonesia, namely:

Indonesia's agricultural development challenges

1. Less farmland

The narrow area of the farm for farming leads to a more limited working space, especially for rice farming. In addition, the high number of farmers artisanal is not balanced with the area of suitable land and appropriate. Instead, it leads to lower productivity. This is evidenced by the many farmers who do the traditional farming. Even the farmer's knowledge of the latest agricultural issues or problems with solving or solutions to these agricultural problems tends to be low.

2. Climate and weather

One of the other factors that is crucial in improving agricultural business is the weather and climate. Today the environmental issues that are often voiced are the subject of global warming that will impact climate change. No liability, a number of consequences arising from global warming can already be felt. For example, natural disasters such as tornadoes, flash floods, storms, tsunamis appear more often in some areas.

3. Global food prices

The Era of free trade as it has now demonstrated the integration between the domestic market and the world market. It is especially central to bring consequences on the linkages between the prices of world-scale agricultural commodities at a domestic price. Therefore the dynamic cost of agricultural commodities that have occurred in the domestic market will not be separated from various trade policies including the policy of government already taken.

4. Government efforts to improve the agricultural sector

From the various obstacles experienced can Indonesia advance? Of course it can, through the various hard efforts that Governments and communities continue to help. Although the agriculture sector in the state of Indonesia is now still a space for small people. Approximately 100 million people or about nearly half of the number of people in Indonesia work in the field of agriculture. Therefore, the Ministry of Agriculture will do a variety of efforts to build a small business actors so that this later becomes a strong foundation to support the economy of Indonesia.

Indonesia still has to keep fighting. However, with existing potential and also efforts in the Barengi strategy that continues to be built by the Indonesian government. In addition, there must be a sense of co-operation continuously on all areas of related aspects, ranging from farmers to policymakers themselves. In addition, by looking at the agricultural sector achievement this year in the success of rice self-sufficiency, it is already showing the development of agriculture that has progressed. Efforts to advance the agriculture sector continues to be implemented, of course, to face various problems that inhibit. Some of the ways that are being done are:
In this year the government has a focus in terms of development in irrigation networks. It is done certainly aims to increase the production of rice crop by increasing the planting intensity as well as the area planted.
The Government has always conducted various innovations in order to support farmers as a leading figure or performer to boost food productivity nationwide, as well as cultivating methods of cultivation, superior varieties, or pest management.

The other innovation is the effort to make a breakthrough by maintaining a large area of monthly planting of rice plants. This is done with the aim in order to be able to monitor the area plus planting or LTT rice in all areas of Indonesia every day.

In addition to monitoring the rice LTT, the government continues to try to identify the problems faced by the farmers in the field through the construction of the Agricultural Technology Research Hall (BPTP).
The implementation of agricultural rehabilitation is by repairing land that had not been produced at first. Then there are several efforts to make the land can return to productive land. One of his efforts is to replace crops that are no longer productive with the kind of plants that have productivity.

That is the explanation about the state of agriculture in Indonesia when viewed from the statistics from period to period that still require extra attention. Both from the government and the community, it is important to take part in the handling process. For the problems that continue to inhibit the agriculture sector in Indonesia, it is expected to be well addressed. So that the results can be felt by all Indonesians, because we equally struggle for Indonesia's advanced farming.

From now on to the future we wait for the latest results or presentation of data that contains the progress of agriculture in Indonesia. Hopefully continue to progress according to what is expected. This is a brief information that can be given to you. Hopefully it can add insight and knowledge. Hopefully useful and contribute to the success of the agricultural sector in Indonesia!
