Healthy corn production in Indonesia

14.08.2018

Indonesia’s Corn Farmers Association (APJI) recorded that corn production in the country until July 2018 reached 19 mt, more than half this year’s total production target of 30 mt. APJI Chairman Sholahuddin is optimistic the target can be achieved since this year’s planting and harvesting area is wider than previous years.

The Ministry of Agriculture has partnered with the Indonesian Feed Millers Association (GPMT) to absorb the corn. According to the ministry, from January-May 2018, the association has absorbed 2.83 million tonnes of local corn, a 32.8% increase over the same period of last year.
