How do we think about the beneficial forms of agriculture that are appropriate and the social environment?
From the beginning, agriculture was one of the sources of life and the day-to-day of society. Plant resources and agricultural efforts, at any form of activity background, become the source of food, daily household needs, medical needs, and livestock.
Agricultural expansion is once suitable as a commodity source of national income. Agricultural efforts such as the Palm Oil Crop have value not only for the smallholder group but also provide the space to dominate the oil palm plantations to propel the economy of all levels of community well-being and national development.
Gardeners, farmers, enterprises, manufacturers, and all sectors involved with such agriculture, such as distributors of fertilizers, herbicides, elimination of crop disease attacks get their rights as economic causes.
This commodity agricultural effort, being a source of income for society and the country, plays an important role in maintaining socio-economic stability and the development of the country. Therefore palm plantations are not a thing to be a comparison in the Green Based Intelligent Spices Forest ( GBISF) program.
The main focus of GBISF is to provide suggestions to the farming community and any community that fits the program method to get the resources to help increase their income, with a multi-conscious, effortless effort and not burdensome from the efforts of selected spice crops.
This is different from orchards with different types of fruits such as durian, and mangosteen as a type of crop needed to enjoy seasonal agricultural produce as a source of family food. However, some types of orchards and fruits are the source of family income, and for the more focused part, they become export products. From that direction, fruit crops became part of the focus of family plantations and fruit plantations. however, it is different from the spice crop as proposed by the GBISF program.
For farmers working on short-term crops such as vegetables, cereals, and herbs they will focus on the crop potentially with various challenges in terms of price, value, and market, not to mention other challenges of the crop field. While its development status is only rapid at the local consumption level, only a small fraction of the percentage can penetrate the overseas market.
The country is very active in agriculture with occasional agricultural products with a large area and population, apart from the suitability of the geographical background. However, according to the GBISF program method, there are still many differences in various aspects of agriculture, capital, demand, agricultural burden, and price. Spices still have their uniqueness in terms of durability, agricultural burden, demand, and price.
From a geographical point of view, our country is still very suitable for spice crops. There is still a lot of land and derelict space that is not fully used wisely and beneficially. There are still many forests that have been cut down idle without any effort to redevelop with suitable methods and options to obtain a source of income as well as to restore the well-being of the environment.
From the various economic situations, the ability of agriculture, the burden of agriculture, the choice of agricultural business, and the proposals and opinions of the farmers, we should find and decide on a suitable proposal so that we can provide the best resources that can help the farming community, as a whole and can be benefited and beneficial in a long-term and certain manner without compromising the National Commodity Agriculture Efforts.
Spice is a plant form that has its uniqueness. The spice plant can provide a variety of returns to the lives of its users and environment, with the ability to adapt to a suitable environment and restore the natural environment.
The nature of the spice tree which is conscious but has exotic value can live long and adapts well to the environment, the need for conscious fertilizing, and nature makes it tolerant of the background of our farming community.
Our farming community has relied heavily on outsourced workers since the 70s. Our society is less interested in the agricultural sector not because of the moral issue of work. This is because there is a demand for more attractive job opportunities in terms of the economy, in addition to the various burdens of agricultural efforts in terms of market, resilience, and price.
Efforts to mobilize interest in planting the preferred spice tree require patience of time, just as we plant durian trees and other plants like it.
However, spice crops can provide attractive long-term returns. The yield of dried spices can be stored for a long time, without compromising their properties and usefulness. The price of spices is also high and remains at the volume of demand.
Various methods can be worked out from spice produced by spice growers. Spices can be sold directly manageable on attractive packaging methods by trying to maintain the quality of production. Spice is acceptable to most consumers' cultural backgrounds. Spices are very beneficial to consumers in various aspects of household daily use. It is the main source as a chart of the aroma and deliciousness of food flavors in addition to being useful for the health of the consumer.
It is expected that when consumers prefer natural products to health, spices will be the main ingredient of choice. Demand will continue to increase with stable prices.
The country's farming community should look at this open to a long-term and rewarding source of opportunity.
This program is as good as possible to provide a variety of factual disclosures about spice cultivation efforts. The most important thing is to provide adequate and appropriate exposure especially those involving market and demand, crop management methods, and yields.
The program aims to help increase the household income of farmers, with a minimum of available and suitable acreage. We do not give recommendations based on acreage but focus on the number of trees that can be planted. However, a minimum of 20 trees to 40 spice trees is good for impacting the additional yield income for farmers.
By the appropriateness of the thinking background of society - the program as much as possible does not involve the issue of capital load, and employees. Based on a sensitive understanding of the culture of thinking of our society with various patterns of confidence and affordability of the agricultural sector, this program will strive to make this effort unshakable with various issues of farmers' experience of failures and losses.
The most helpful thing that can be seen from this program is the durability of spices to be stored and not burdening the farming community.
This program, if viewed on a long-term basis, is very beneficial to society and the country.
It can grow across various sectors, economic, sociocultural, educational, food, and health as well as the environment.
The issue of lateness, space, and the confidence of the farming community will not be used as a wall of thought that is difficult to break.
There are still many abandoned areas over the decades that have remained idle to this day without benefit, just checking the views and common sense.
There is still a lot of free space in the farmers' plantations, the suburbs of smallholders' houses, and the conscious that are not properly filled and beneficial.
Our farmers must get information, and sufficient exposure as to where the spice farmers in Sumatra Indonesia, becoming spice farmers with the concept of 'ant colony' manage to produce tens of thousands of tones of spices every year that ultimately contribute great value to the well-being of farmers, the environment and the income of the country.
We have to make this program a momentum to reap the benefits and benefits that have partly been carved into history.
The nature of being able to grow on the mainland of the equator is also sub-tropical. It should be part of the farmer's agenda to be able to provide adequate supply at the occasional demand of the world's population for the unlimited needs of spices and consumer borders.
