Mujiono, 35, a pepper farmer in Tanggamus, Lampung, checks his plants on Wednesday (21/3). The area of pepper plantations in Lampung has decreased due to the declining pepper prices over the past two years. The price of pepper in 2016 was Rp 110,000 per kilogram. Now, farmers can only sell pepper at Rp 40,000 per kg. Farmers also have to deal with diseases attacking the plants.
