The Trick of Smallholders in Labuhanbatu when Facing the Cheap FFB while The Fertilizers are Expensive

InfoSAWIT, RANTAUPRAPAT – Fresh fruit bunch (FFB) per kilogram produced by the independent smallholders gets cheaper and in the same time, the chemical fertilizers get more expensive.

For others the situation could manage the smallholders not cultivate their plantations. If they still do, it would not be maximally done.

But it does not happen to Suparmin and other independent smallholders in Asosiasi Pekebun Swadaya Kelapa Sawit (APSKS) Labuhanbatu. They have no word ‘surrender’.

“We are helped by PT Siringo-ringo, the subsidiary of Musim Mas in the training to produce compost – just about to nurse our plantations maximally and in economic price,” Suparmin said to InfoSAWIT, Monday (4/7/2022).

The 54 year – old man told the training process ran in phase. The geographic of their circumstance and the plantations is not in one overlay. “APSKS is in District of Labuhanbatu and District of Labuhanbatu Utara. We could be more than 1.000 independent smallholders,” the man who loves biking said. He continued, they really need helps and technic to produce compost which would be very effective to apply in their plantations. They hoped, having skills to produce and apply compost, their plantations could be well nursed within economic price.

“In the same time, we do hope to get profits from our FFB selling which is not at about Rp 1.200 per kilogram in the loading ramp,” Suparmin said. (T5)
