Bapanas turned to reservoirs and pumps to maintain rice production

Diposting pada 14 Juni 2024 oleh admin / Dilihat: 0 kali

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The National Food Agency (Bapanas) relies on pump and reservoir facilities to maintain the national rice production rate of at least 1 million tonnes during this year’s dry season.

“For the problem of water shortages, as long as there are rivers, some rice fields can be irrigated by pumping water from the river,” said Bapanas Head Arief Prasetyo Adi, Friday.

He noted that this year’s drought occurred amidst widespread climate change in various parts of the world.

President Joko Widodo, in his opening speech at the 2024 National Working Meeting on Inflation Control, Friday, described the current air temperature as ‘climatic hell’, characterized by a heat wave in India which reached a temperature of 50 degrees Celsius, and Myanmar at a temperature of 50 degrees Celsius. 45.8 degrees Celsius.

“Climate change is not only happening in Indonesia, but throughout the world. The earth has the potential to warm up to 50 degrees Celsius, like in India. “Several countries also experience air temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius,” said Adi.

The majority of plants would not be able to survive such temperatures, he warned.

His agency is relying on a program to install 20 thousand pumps in all agricultural areas affected by the drought.

“Continue deep well pumping up to 150 meters underground,” he added.

Apart from pumps, Bapanas will also use 61 reservoir facilities which will soon be inaugurated by the President.

Bapanas will also provide food balance reports as an indicator of inflation levels which can be monitored at any time by local governments.

“Each region must have a food balance, must know how much to produce. “Inter-regional cooperation also needs to be followed by efforts by Bapanas, Bulog (Logistics Agency) and BUMN Pangan (State-Owned Enterprises) to prepare government food reserves,” said Adi.

He hopes that these efforts can help food-related authorities in Indonesia to consistently maintain a national rice supply of at least one million tonnes.

“Rice (production) must be maintained above 1 million tonnes. “That’s mandatory,” he stressed.
