Jakarta (ANTARA) – President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) urged the Ministry of Agriculture to complete preparations for the development of food parks in North Sumatra and Central Kalimantan by 2021.
In his opening remarks at a national agricultural development 2021 working meeting at the State Palace here on Monday, the head of state was confident that other provinces would emulate North Sumatra’s food parks and of Central Kalimantan.
In Central Kalimantan, the food estate is expected to be located in Kapuas and Pulau Pisau district, covering a total area of approximately 164,600 hectares. Rice planting is planned on land that was previously a peatland project area.
In North Sumatra, the food estate is expected to be located in Humbang Hasundutan district, exclusively for horticultural products, covering an area of about 30,000 hectares.
“There is no point in producing only a few commodities, as this would not affect the imports of commodities. The problem for a long time until now is, for example, why farmers do not want to plant soybeans, which can also be grown in Indonesia because the price is less competitive than imported soybeans, ”said the president.

Jokowi also stressed his intention to constantly keep abreast of the development of the food fields in the two provinces.
“I really ask to be followed on the ground, so that later, if we build a food barn in these two provinces, the food park that we develop is correct. We will encourage other provinces to provide funds from the state budget, but there is definitely a comeback, ”President Jokowi said.
The Head of State recalled that the agricultural sector occupied an increasingly central position in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As we know that the FAO (us) has warned of a potential food crisis. Be careful about this. Be careful due to restrictions on the mobility of citizens and also the distribution of goods between countries and food distribution global being hampered, ”Jokowi stressed.
The soybean supply problem was also a result of these activity restrictions, he noted.
The food park is a concept of food development implemented in an integrated way that includes agriculture, plantations and also livestock in certain areas. The Food Park, or known as the Large Scale Food Barn, aims to maintain national food security.
