ASPEKPIR North Sumatera: Knowing the Cheap FFB, Please Do not Do Ridiculous Things

InfoSAWIT, MEDAN – Fresh fruit bunch (FFB) that the smallholders both plasma and independent ones produced, gets cheaper in the past three months. It is even less than Rp 1.000/kg.

"I suggest that the smallholders both members and non-members of Aspek-PIR should be patient. Do not panic, or cut off your trees,” Chairman of Asosiasi Petani Kelapa Sawit Perkebunan Inti Rakyat (Aspek-PIR) North Sumatera, Syarifuddin Sirait said to InfoSAWIT, Wednesday (22/6/2022).

The smallholder of Village of Gotting Sidodadi, Sub district of Bandar Pasir Mandoge, District of Asahan told, he is the victim of cheap FFB but he realized, destroying his own plantations would not deliver the solution.

“I do not know what to say if the smallholders are patient to nurse their plantations, waiting for the harvest, but all of a sudden, they cut off their trees because of FFB price for the last three months,” he reminded.

He who is also the Chairman of Koperasi Petani Kelapa Sawit (KPKS) Kesepakatan suggested, the smallholders should be patient and take this situation cool.

“We are dying for the past two months. As the Chairman of Aspek-PIR North Sumatera and on behalf of plasma smallholders, I am sorry for what is happening. I just pray, we should be patient for this disaster. We have to believe, this would not last for some time,” he said. (T5)
