Sukarman, 42, pepper farmer in Tanggamus, Lampung, checks his plants on Wednesday (21/3). Pepper plantation areas have decreased because of declining pepper prices in the past two years. In 2016, the pepper price was Rp 110,000 per kg, but now it is down to Rp 40,000 per kg. Farmers also suffer from plant diseases.

BANDAR LAMPUNG, KOMPAS – The lack of research is one of several factors contributing to the decline in the production of a number of agricultural commodities, which have been the backbone of the county’s economy for years.

The involvement of many parties is needed to make the agricultural sector strong again. Indonesia, for example, dominated the world pepper export market until 2013. Ironically, the world pepper market is now dominated by Vietnam, which learned about pepper cultivation from Indonesia in the early 1980s.
