26.01.2017

Indonesia’s Agriculture Ministry has ensured that the country will stop corn importation for feed millers this year as the ministry strongly believes that the country can produce 24 million tonnes of corn. Andi Amran Sulaiman, Agriculture Minister said: “From March to May this year, we will harvest around 12-15 million tonnes of corn.

This is more than enough for the feed millers. In the same period of last year, we were able to produce 10 million tonnes.” Regions contributing to the expected harvest include Gorontalo, North Sulawesi, West Nusa Tenggara, East Java, Lampung and South Sulawesi.
