InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA – The cheap fresh fruit bunch (FFB) produced by the smallholders delivers impact for most of the independent smallholders who depend on their lives from the commodity.
By this condition, one independent smallholder of Pangkalan Bun, District of Kotawaringin Barat (Kobar), Central Kalimantan Province, Wayan Supadno encouraged himself to write open letter in the form of critics and suggestion about what the government published which made smallholders’ FFB get cheaper.
In his letter, Wayan thought, many mills should not operate because their crude palm oil (CPO) storage tanks are full and the stock reached about 6,3 million tons. Mostly the export volume reached only 30%.
Many smallholders’ plantations should not be harvested because the mills stop operating and FFB is about Rp 600/kg TBS or less than production cost which reaches Rp 1.800/kg;
“Petani sawit jutaan kepala keluarga (KK) terancam bangkrut dan anaknya terancam putus sekolah,” the notes in his open letter.
Wayan asked for the government to temporarily stop every kind of tax and citation to palm oil products to be exported.
“DMO, DPO dan flush out pajak ekspor US$ 288, pungutan ekspor US$ 200, flush out US$ 200. Total US$ 688/ton CPO setara Rp 10.320.000/ton atau Rp 2.064/kg TBS. Agar sementara waktu dicabut, supaya ekspor lancar menguras CPO 6,3 juta ton agar tinggal 1 juta ton. Pemerintah mengalah sementara, asal dapat PPN dan devisa,” Wayan noted.
“Selain itu guna menghabiskan stok CPO yang mencapai 6,3 juta ton bisa sebagian untuk program mandatori B40, mumpung harga CPO murah agar tidak subsidi dari BPDPKS,” as Wayan wrote in his open letter. (T5)
