Indonesian Agriculture vs Japan farm

RemajaIslamHebat.Com - Alhamdulillah, on July 4th, 2017 to July 12, 2017 ago, I went to Japan, with the main purpose of visiting a farm in kagoshima. Kagoshima is the most southern area of the Japanese country. This area is very fertile because of the volcano volcano that was in kagoshima's bay "diligent" dropped volcanic ash to kagoshima. The average temperature is 18 degrees c, the highest temperature of 33 degrees and the lowest 15 degrees Celsius.

The lives of farmers in kagoshima are in peace. Average per 5 acres of farmland managed by 5-6 farmers. According to the conversation, at least farmers in kagoshima can get the average income per month of RP. 30-40 million. These peasants are usually joined in Association (sort of cooperative), who manage the agricultural results from upstream to downstream.

In Agriculture in kagoshima (and Japan in general) many are berpolakan healthy and natural Agriculture (Organic). Organic products get a very important place for the Japanese. In the hotel where I'm staying, other than available water tap water, provided soap, Shampoo, and conditioner with an organic label.

From my visit a few days to kagoshima, in technology, farming in kagoshima, is not much different from in Indonesia. When I did an interview with some farmers and also agricultural association in kagoshima, I didn't find these incredible things from their agricultural technology. This indicates, in technology, Indonesia is not a great loser compared to Japan in organic farming. Even in a few things, Indonesian Agriculture more advanced. In Kagoshima, I found a lot of agriculture by using the green house,_ which of course in Indonesia didn't lose. In fact, in garut, my partner kang tantan, had applied _ Green house _ intelligent controlled computers. So, we don't need to be low on agricultural technology compared to Japan.

Then does that make the Japanese farm so forward? The main key seems to be located in a well-constructed system. Don't want to, there are government roles and agricultural institutions that are so powerful and integrated. The Japanese are very concerned about the farm. For certain areas, the irrigation channel was made by creating a dam, or using a pump. Farmers just paid retribution for the use of the facility at a reasonably cheap cost.

Infrastructure is also strongly supported, both roads and transportation. I compared the rice fields that are in leles garut, it is usually difficulty in carrying crops, because there is no road access. In Kagoshima, at the intervals of the fields / Farms, there are roads that even enough for 1 cars pass, but it is very helpful for the farmers carrying the farm, and of course as access to the tractor and other farm machine tools.

Agricultural Harvest in kagoshima, not specified by market price, but is determined based on the cost of production costs. So there won't be a story of tomato price so cheap to be thrown into the gutter by farmers. The Distribution Chain is not friendly like in Indonesia that sometimes it doesn't make sense, today is a high price, next week falls low. Prices are not the mafia and the middleman as they happen in Indonesia. 

Also, Agriculture in kagoshima, not only selling raw harvest results, but also there are also olahannya products. And one thing is very interesting to me, all the raw products and the packaging is packed in a very pretty, interesting, interesting design. . Some Agricultural Association (including Kagoshima Organic Farmer's Association) that I visit, choose _ own marketing _ outlet. They have a network of organic shops circulating in various areas. Kagoshima Organic Farmer's own association initially only for 4 Farm groups, now it has grown up to the 140's farm group. In the place I visited, they got _ cold storage, sorting, packing, etc. _ cold storagenya _ guarded at temperatures around 15 degrees c. 

* then, can i deduce, the greatness of agriculture in Japan is not located on its farm, but lies in the spirit of farming the farmers, and the support of all Japanese people, both its people, governments, and other institutions The Farmer's profession in Japan is greatly appreciated, so the government escending hands, with an insurance policy that can guarantee a harvest failure, the health of the farmer's health, and the . The Japanese are very proud to consume their agricultural results, though in some quite expensive things. Examples of Japan's famous and tasty rice is appreciated about JPY 2.000 (Rp230. 000) Per 2 KG. But they can still sell the price of rice so much to the other countries. It is different with most of Indonesian people who are more proud to consume foreign agricultural products. Especially if the overseas product is cheaper than a local product. While in Japan is not, as much as any other nation's product, they would be more proud to consume local agricultural products, even if it cost . So briefly my experience of visiting a farm in kagoshima. May Indonesia, the country that his ancestors had the power of farming, can rise into the agricultural country again. Our farm in agriculture is not defeated and in some superior matters. The Indonesian climate allows us to be able to farm all year. Even if the government hasn't shown support for Agriculture, this is what we need to do with the synergizing way, processors, distribution and marketing.

Of course, that can lift indonesian agriculture, are our own people of Indonesia. Starting from now has consciousness to buy our local farm products, because of every kg of vegetables we buy, there is money that enters the farmer for the cost of his children's school, health costs, and their lives. But if we are more proud to buy an agricultural agricultural product, it could be, the money that goes into them is to add their fancy houses, add fancy cars, and effort hogging. . Think about it.
