Month-old paddies grow in a rice field in Jambesari village, Banyuwangi, East Java, as seen on 11 Oct. 2019.

BANYUWANGI, KOMPAS – Most farmers in Banyuwangi regency, East Java, are continuing to experience a shortage of subsidized fertilizers. As a result, a number of farmers have delayed planting while others have decided to proceed with planting and leave the plants untreated.
