A SMALL PART THAT IS LESS NOTICEABLE
My Note Of My Journey.
What's written here is not the result of a specific scientific study. As agricultural studies are of a botanical nature of certain types of species, involving the study of growth, the study of tree diseases, the study of nutrition suitability, methods of recovery scientifically as well as the study of growth cells.
What's written here is a record of experience and travel. The study of how the background of growth and agricultural activities involves the background of the people that surround it. The study of how the mindset of the people who work in agriculture is like clove spice and sweet skin crops for example.
Assessing how they deal with unsupportive environmental situations such as infrastructure forms, natural disasters, price issues, middleman pressure, and arbitrary nature of the electorate takes advantage. Examine how farmers deal with opportunities and spaces that do not support such agricultural efforts.
The research was based on extensive experience and records at certain points of the area such as West Sumatra known for its production of spices, cloves, and cinnamon, the Cane City in Acheh Province, a Society known for its candlenut production, the Lord's Site known for its Pala fruit spice. This note is based on direct contact with the agricultural business's people. The writing was also made at a certain point based on the sources of information of those who had been in direct contact with the peasant community, such as the clove farmers from Maluku.
This writing is also taken from the experience of travel records in Vietnam and India.
Based on the conscious travel record, it is written not only about the experience of farmers, thinking patterns, as well as socio-cultural and economic events from generation to generation but also, about the clash of challenges they have to go through to get the best returns from their efforts.
It is also based on direct experience of the market and the demand for spices in the local area thus penetrating the world market. We know very well about the history of spice use, its necessity, and its challenges. The ever-growing use of spices is in line with the increasing population of the world population. We also know that the consumer of this spice has no boundaries and culture.
In light of this conscious study, it must be taken into account not only the nature of the species but also the research and assessment of the direct and indirect impact on the environment, and the best impact on the well-being of life and the life that will surround it.
This writing was also made against the principle of conscience and responsibility in the lives of fellow humans. Responsibility as a trustee of the increasingly fragile and neglected values of life's conscience.
We seem to be tired of researching papers that contain the structure of increasing figures, the percentage of profits that increase with all the factors that fuel the greedy lust of some profit chasers.
Therefore, the writing can also be referred to as a paper but based on touching not only on the economic aspect but more on the awareness of the responsibility of the trust that has been given. It involves the awareness of heritage and generational responsibilities by the space of opportunity given such as geographical background for universal needs.
In this conscious writing, it is noted that the value of economics, which is capable of having a real impact on life is not only on the principle of gluttony and greatness in the theory of reason but having a pattern in the responsibility of conscience.
Therefore, on conscious awareness, this effort should be carried out by facilitating implementation, not burdening the executor together with true and certified guarantees without a time limit not only for the entrepreneur but also for the well-being of the consumer and his environmental life.
SPICES, THE GREEN ENVIRONMENT, AND WELL-BEING LIFE.
Spices Agriculture for our Generation and Heritage.
Not to rival but rather to share space and opportunity with the Malaysian Community which is among the largest spice consumers importing spices from major spice-producing countries, such as India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, and several other countries, on the mainland on the tropics. This is clear because Malaysia has multi-racial people such as Malays, Chinese, and Indians. This group is known for its wide variety of cuisines that use spices in their cooking. Using spices in their daily lives to increase the body's resistance, cure diseases, aroma, and nutritional needs. If it's called a type of spice like sweet skin, our suppliers import hundreds of tonnes per month for one type of spice. Consumers spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year and may touch billions of dollars on local spice needs.
Indonesia is one of the main
spice-producing countries such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. In line with the economic development in Indonesia as a country that is intensively developing infrastructure, the people's awareness of enjoying the space and opportunities to increase family income is huge. Intensive infrastructure development has been able to penetrate corners of areas that have been isolated for a long time. The opportunity to explore the land on a large scale, work opportunities, and the development of new settlements became an unavoidable option to be joined by the whole community exposed to the concept of such development. Many communities choose a way to increase economic turnover that is more secure than just working in remote garden gardens for generations. The community participates in the opportunity to work in more secure economic sectors such as supermarkets, manufacturing plants are also semi-electronic factories developed by external investors, in line with the workforce opportunities and the necessary raw material resource facilities.
Many new settlement points that are more complete with infrastructure facilities, as well as a more modern way of life, can be enjoyed.
This kind of economic climate change has had a major impact on the agricultural sector including the production of spices.
We also know that Indonesia is a country with a considerable source of revenue reserves from within the earth with unlimited implementation opportunities, especially manpower. Adequate and suitable infrastructure has driven the rapid improvement of economic achievement, which indirectly provides space and opportunities for the community, especially young people, to participate in activities in various sectors from agricultural efforts. Even if there is a large-scale opening of plantations, it is more focused on commodity farming activities such as oil palm cultivation. These people are starting to find a more open space to participate in this opportunity through the necessary and appropriate direction and level of education.
Looking at the opportunities and changes that occurred drastically between 10-20 years 2000-2020 in the socio-economic sector involving the Education sector, job opportunities, administrative opportunities, and a broad infrastructure structure. The need to shift the focus from agriculture to other fields is very open and promising.
Therefore, the purpose of implementing this cultivation program in MALAYSIA is not a coincidence, but from the basis of careful study, it does not involve hasty opportunities but also looking at the aspect of product rotation as well as the cultural lifestyle of our neighbors because of the lifestyle and change of mindset that indirectly changes the socio-cultural as well as the economic side of the structure of society by the environment. To be honest they should have enjoyed the change and we wish our neighbors all the best. Therefore, we are indeed not just taking the opportunity and trying to move opportunities, but also striving to maintain the needs of these boundless and borderless spice users to remain, and able to meet the needs of consumers.
On the other hand, the effort to grow spices in Malaysia is not to deny the ownership of the producing country but merely to meet the dwindling needs of the country. For the spice farmers community that partly changed direction, it was a conscious and natural rotation of life. They should enjoy all the life improvements that are more secure and prosperous.
It should be noted that by comparing the size of the planting space, and the capacity of the spice agricultural products if we grow as large as our country Malaysia, it is not yet able to promote the stability of the spice market and the needs of the world's spices, as well as the price and number of consumers. Because we know that selected types of spices such as nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon are suitable only on the mainland of countries and continents touched on the equator and tropical lines. Therefore, the spice cultivation effort in Malaysia is just a conscious step from their point of view, but it means a lot to us, who are working to fill in the long-term options and proposals for our agricultural sector.
It was on this realization that I wrote. This writing is made to suit the background capabilities of experience, research, and conscious study. This writing was not made on the focus of the scientific peeling of agriculture. This writing is written more about trying to apply the necessary understanding. Because in the sense of how we see the direction we want to go through, we have to prepare mentally and physically first. We must first destroy the status of our mindset, as a supply of confidence and resilience. By the principle, we take it as a self-appropriate principle, a principle of self-sufficiency and choice. Principles formed from Within conscience, are not made to make and follow only the lead. Because we know the success of this effort is long-term and continues in the footsteps of heritage and generations.
