InfoSAWIT, JAMBI – Prior according to Fresh Fruit Bunch (FFB) Team of Jambi Province on 12 - 18 August 2022, it is decided that 10 - 20 year old FFB is getting better Rp 119,75/Kg to be Rp. 2.136,72/Kg.
On paper - numbers keep increasing compared to the previous period but Head of Plantation Agency Jambi Province, Agusrizal said, only 10 - 15 percent smallholders in the province sold their FFB at the numbers. Many others are still hit by the cheap FFB.
“Rp. 2.136,72/Kg was the most expensive one and it was yesterday. The issue is that if the yield is 26 to 27, it is the highest standard or the best FFB,” he said, as quoted from Tribun Jambi.
Agusrizal also mentioned, it is the reference price only for the plasma smallholders. The numbers are only suggestion for the middlemen to purchase smallholders’ FFB.
“The smallholders in Jambi Province reach about 15 percent sold at the numbers and they have to be plasma ones,” he said. (T2)
