Deputy Secretary General of National KTNA, Zulharman Djusman. S.E said that the government and the private sector must provide support so that Indonesia has a high technology-based agriculture.

This was conveyed by Zulharman Djusman when he was the speaker of the Group Discussion Forum (FGD) with the theme “Improving the quality of Human Resources and Empowering Farmers Towards Modern Agriculture in Order to Support National Food Security and Sovereignty ‘at the Head Office of the National Strategic Review (PPSN), Kuningan, Jakarta, Thursday (27) / 2/2020).

“So it is not only from the government, but all groups, namely from the private sector as well as from our own senior circles, because this technology itself is actually used for our millennials, ie millennials for the next 5 or 7 years who will implement these millennial products. to agriculture in Indonesia, “said Zulharman.

He considered that without a leap or a spike in modernization, both in terms of tools and education and new methods, agriculture in Indonesia would not surge and continue to lag behind other countries.

In this case, Zulharman said in 1985-1986, Indonesia had assisted in donating the food of a famine-hit African country and 22 other African countries. And the results of the announcement of grain from farmer groups collected 100,150 tons which in the FAO called the Indonesian Fund Farmer (IFF).

But now, based on data from the Food Sustainability Index (FSI) organization, Skak has surprisingly placed Ethiopia as the world’s 12th Agriculture Superpower and Food Security, while Indonesia ranks 21st.

According to him it happened because one of the reasons was that Indonesia did not implement renewable technology and modernization technology.

“This is because one of them was that we do not apply renewable technology and modernization technology at this time,” he concluded.
