Paddy production in 2015 confirmed Exceeds The target

The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) predicts that the number of paddy production in 2015 will increase by 6.64 percent, or 75.55 million tons compared to the previous year. Based on BPS data, this is the highest in the last 10 years.

 

This year, Paddy Production 6.64 percent increase. Last year fell 0.61 percent from 2013, while in 2013 rose 3.22 percent, 5.02 percent in 2012, and so on. "The development of an increase and a decrease in national Paddy Production from 2006 to 2015. 2006 has real until 2014. During the last 10 years, this year the highest increase due to the efforts of government and society, until the military is also involved in escorting fertilizer," said BPS Head Suryamin.
 
BPS hopes Special Effort (Upsus) which sought the Ministry of Agriculture consistent increase food production. The special efforts, such as the provision of seeds, fertilizers and agricultural machinery to farmers. "The government's been doing some special efforts to increase production with the help of seed, fertilizers, agricultural machinery such as tractors, water pumps, and others," he explained.
 
Based on a constant number (Atap) in 2014 and forecast figures (Aram) I 2015, subround I numbers, realization from January to April, from crop yields, October-November plus with May-August subround II based on planting area that is already happening-in April-May.
 
"Meanwhile, subround III in September-December based on predictions like the pattern of last year. That is, two subround, although based on a projection but is based on the realization of the planting area, even from the end of last year and in April, there was an increase in 2015, we predictions to 75 , 55 million tonnes of paddy, whereas in 2014, 70.85 million tons, "he said.
 
An increase of 4.7 million tons or up 6.64 percent is due to the area harvested in 2015 is also estimated from two subround quite complete. Planting area subround II can already emerged in April-May "In fact, now every month we've been able to count the extensive planting rises 512.06 thousand hectares or 3.71 percent. And also the productivity yield, per hectare is expected to rise 1.45 quintals per hectare. Usually the yield per hectare, is not high, but broad harvest still can, "he explained.
 

The increase in productivity in 2015 is quite high and could not be separated from some of the activities carried out by the government. Activities that include special efforts (upsus) in improving agriculture, especially rice and food crops, as well as timeliness in the provision of seeds. There is also the expansion, optimization, and escort the planting period, causing an increase in the 2015 forecast numbers I to 75.55 million tons of dry milled grain.

 

"This is because the provision of pumps and tractors that have been realized in subround I and partially subround II. Then fertilizer also pursued its accuracy in planting, although not 100 percent. It is being pursued to be correct at the time require fertilizer," said Suryamin.

 

In addition, continued Suryamin, agricultural land is expected to increase 512 057 hectares to 14.3 million hectares from 13.7 million hectares in 2014, contributing to the increase rice production. As a result, there is an increase rice productivity by 2.16 quintal per hectare, or 4.36 percent.

 

BPS noted, there are five provinces that the highest increase in Paddy Production until June this year. These five provinces are Lampung, West Java, South Sumatra, Central Java and East Java. "There is the highest increase in five provinces of the 17 provinces that have the potential to increase production significantly," said Suryamin.

 

He explained, in Lampung, Paddy Production numbers increased to as much as 541,000 tonnes in the period January to June 2015. Furthermore, the total Paddy Production in West Java in the first half of this year totaled 373,000 tons. Then South Sumatra as much as 434,000 tons. "Then source granary, Central Java as much as 954,000 tons. Besides, other granary, namely East Java as much as 381,000 tons," he said. (Kompas)
