Indonesia's rice production adequate to sustain demand: Minister
Minister of Agriculture Anton Apriyantono said on Tuesday that Indonesia's unhusked rice production was projected to reached about 53 million tons this year, the same as the production level achieved last year.

This projection showed there was no indication Indonesia would be short of rice until the end of this year, the minister said on the sidelines of anational conference on oil palm estates.

"This means there is no need for Indonesia to import rice from other countries," he said.

The minister personally demanded that the prices foragricultural products be set keeping in mind the welfare of farmers.

People have started shunning the agriculture sector due to the limited return from their produce.

"Don't set the prices of agriculture produce too low as it will not help lift farmers out of poverty," he said.

Anton also underlined the importance of upgrading technology for unhusked rice processing to help raise productivity.

"The application of suitable technology is a must for a higher level of productivity," he added.
