Pepper can still be considered a key export commodity for Indonesia. However, the level of productivity at the national level is still low and stands below the productivity level of other prominent pepper producing countries, such as Brazil, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
Many factors have contributed to the low productivity of Indonesian pepper. Among them are the increasing number of old or damaged plants, disturbance of organisms, pests and diseases, and a lack of proper plant maintenance. Another contributor is the low market price of pepper which left many farmers unable to properly maintain their and thus decreased productivity, with some farmers even deciding to no longer plant it at all.
Various efforts to increase pepper productivity include using tajar, intensive and regular pruning and balanced fertilisation. This webinar will discuss efforts to increase pepper productivity with detailed and thorough explanations given by experts from Balittro.
In this webinar , participants will get information on
