SB IPB, Bogor – Essential oil (Atsiri) currently growing as potential commodities for export, which historically was also target of the colonizers earlier. Indonesia is one of the world’s essential producers such as patchouli, cloves, cinnamon and fragrant lemongrass. M. Prayoga Sunandar a.k.a Yoga, a student of Master program of SB-IPB University realize and see this opportunities to develop essential business in his native region as well as one of essential’s producer area, Jambi.

He aware that lot of non optimal land utilized by the farmers. It commonly occur due to lack of farmers’ knowledge about essential as another potential commodity apart of oil palm and rubber. Moreover, farmers exchange rate (NTP) in those area is still low. Finding this fact, Yoga decided to convince the farmers to start planting essential and established CV Jambi Sentra Herbalindo. This startup business has running since 2018 which aim to grow economic independence by increasing NTP’s through planting essential commodities thus farmers have alternative choices for planted commodities. As a sociopreneur who has big dreams, Yoga obviously encounter many risks and obstacle. Besides of capital, limited farmers’ knowledge about essential oil make education and assistance for farmers are highly required thus the farmers will interest for planting essential commodities.

“Investments in equipments and materials are still challenging at the moment. Hence we try to collaborate between farmers since not all of them are affordable to buy seeds and equipments,” Yoga said. Furthermore, Yoga said that most important things of this business is not only focussing on quantity, but also on product’s quality. They presented a tool for production quality level checking since many farmers was fooled and considered their yield is not good if its cheap priced.

During current Covid-19 pandemic, he admit that the business has affected as well. “Several factories was closed but it already gradually return to normal now. We decided to selling hand sanitizers since there is an increasing trend but it mixed with essential oil, so there would be a difference,” Yoga said. Various constraints and existing risks that faced by CV Jambi Sentra Herbalindo, the business remains survives despite the fact that abroad market has a distrust of Indonesia’s products. It motivated Yoga to develop traceability system for every produced product thus reducing fraud possibility and increasing trust from foreign markets against Indonesia’s essential business.

“We believe this is a huge potential since Europe’s essentials demand has rising, and it probably influenced by people who begin entered aging population so they tend to choose natural product. We also have owned organic certification which require to enter Europe’s market,” he said. Recently CV Jambi Sentra Herbalindo becomes raw material supplier for industries with 35 fostered farmers which offered products such as fragrant lemongrass, betel oil, and patchouli. CV Jambi Sentra Herbalindo has been also working with Science and Techno Park, IPB University who will mentored the business development.

At the end of the interview, Yoga convey some messages for peer entrepreneurs, especially that just getting started. “Business is an art, it takes a long process to reach the success. Of course there would be a lot of hurdles, our job to think how we could endure, consistent, and planning good strategy,” he said. Then, Yoga also advised all peer who interested in exports business, “Indonesia own many potential commodities that can be exported, however the most important thing is we know who is our buyer to minimize constraints at a later time.

Strategi Ketahanan Pangan di Era New Normal Pandemi Covid 19

Jakarta, 9 Juni 2020—Badan Keahlian DPR RI dan Sekolah Bisnis IPB University (SB-IPB) bekerja sama mengadakan Webinar yang mengusung topik “Strategi Ketahanan Pangan di Era New Normal Pandemi Covid 19” pada Selasa (9/6), membahas mengenai pandemi Covid-19 yang melanda Indonesia sejak bulan Februari 2020 telah berdampak pada berbagai sektor, salah satunya sektor pertanian karena merupakan sektor yang melakukan pemenuhan terhadap kebutuhan dasar masyarakat seperti kebutuhan pangan yang meliputi pertanian pangan, ternak, sayuran dan buah buahan, serta perkebunan. Sektor pertanian menjadi sangat penting pada masa pandemi Covid-19 karena berkaitan erat dengan ketahanan pangan.

Dalam webinar ini menghadirkan para narasumber, yaitu 1) Menteri Pertanian RI, Dr. Syahrul Yasin Limpo yang mengangkat topik tentang “Kebijakan Pemerintah dalam Menjamin Ketahanan Pangan Di Era New Normal Pandemi Covid 19; 2) Ketua Komisi IV DPR RI, Sudin, SE berbicara seputar tentang “Implementasi Fungsi Pengawasan dan Legislasi DPR RI dalam Menjamin Ketahanan Pangan Di Era New Normal Pandemi Covid 19”; dan 3) Rektor IPB University, Prof. Dr. Arif Satria, SP., M.Si. menyampaikan topik tentang “Inovasi Perguruan Tinggi Untuk Menjamin Ketahanan Pangan Di Era New Normal Pandemi Covid 19”. Bertindak sebagai moderator yaitu Dekan SB-IPB, Prof. Dr.Ir. Noer Azam Achsani, MS. Webinar ini terbuka untuk umum dan dihadiri oleh berbagai stakeholder yang terdiri dari legislatif, eksekutif/pemerintah, dosen, mahasiswa, praktisi bisnis, dan masyarakat dengan berbagai jenis profesi.

Ketahanan pangan menjadi salah satu hal yang penting pada saat pandemi Covid 19 karena dapat mengakibatkan berbagai permasalahan di antaranya terganggunya produksi, distribusi, dan konsumsi kebutuhan pokok akibat diberlakukannya pembatasan sosial berskala besar dan larangan perjalanan bagi masyarakat. Kondisi ini dapat memicu kekhawatiran jika Indonesia akan mengalami krisis pangan. Hal ini dikuatkan dengan pendapat Organisasi Pangan Dunia atau Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) yang menyampaikan akan adanya ancaman kelangkaan pangan di masa pandemi Covid 19.

”Terdapat 3 agenda utama pada masa pandemi Covid 19, yaitu pertama agenda darurat/jangka pendek yang terdiri dari stabilitas harga pangan termasuk pengendalian harga, fasilitas pembiayaan petani dan padat karya pertanian; yang kedua adalah agenda temporary/menengah diversifikasi pangan lokal, supporting daerah-daerah defisit dan antisipasi kekeringan; dan yang ketiga agenda permanen/jangka panjang yakni ekstensifikasi tanaman pangan, peningkatan produksi per tahun, pengembangan korporasi petani dan pengembangan para petani milenial,” ujar Menteri Pertanian.

Berdasarkan data dari Kementerian Pertanian diketahui perkiraan ketersediaan pangan strategis nasional untuk bulan Maret hingga Agustus 2020 yakni untuk beras tersedia 25,6 juta ton dari kebutuhan 15 juta ton; jagung sebanyak 13,7 juta ton dari kebutuhan 9,1 juta ton; bawang merah tersedia 1,06 juta ton dari kebutuhan 701.482 ton; dan cabai besar tersedia 657.467 ton dari kebutuhan 551.261 ton. Selanjutnya, daging kerbau/sapi tersedia 517.872 ton (290.000 ton diantaranya berasal dari impor) dari kebutuhan 476.035 ton; daging ayam ras 2 juta ton dari kebutuhan 1,7 juta ton; minyak goreng 23,4 juta ton dari kebutuhan 4,4 juta ton; dan stok gula pasir yang terdapat di gudang distributor sebanyak 159.000 ton. Meskipun berdasarkan data Kementerian Pertanian stok pangan nasional mengalami surplus namun hal ini bukan berarti Indonesia terbebas dari ancaman krisis pangan. Hal ini dikarenakan pandemi Covid-19 belum pasti kapan akan berakhir.

Dalam rangka menjamin ketahanan pangan di masa pandemi Covid 19 di Indonesia, Pemerintah telah menyiapkan berbagai strategi seperti memantau stabilitas harga kebutuhan pokok agar tidak meroket dan meningkatkan produksi pangan nasional berbasis pertanian rakyat serta keberpihakan kepada petani kecil. Untuk mewujudkan hal ini Pemerintah melakukan realokasi anggaran yang lebih besar untuk dialokasikan pada bantuan benih/bibit, program padat karya, stabilisasi stok dan harga pangan, dan distribusi dan transportasi pangan.

Selain itu upaya lain yang dilakukan oleh Pemerintah dalam rangka menjamin ketahanan pangan yaitu memberlakukan new normal. New normal merupakan langkah yang diambil Pemerintah untuk memulihkan kehidupan sosial dan ekonomi. Penerapan new normal yang dilakukan oleh Pemerintah merujuk pada indikator yang dikeluarkan oleh World Health Organization (WHO) dengan beberapa penyesuaian berdasarkan kebutuhan Pemerintah.

”Sektor pertanian merupakan sektor strategis dan harus mendapatkan perhatian karena memiliki jumlah tenaga kerja yang besar, dimana produksi mengalami penurunan tetapi konsumsi tinggi. Tantangannya adalah bagaimana memenuhi kebutuhan pangan masyarakat guna menjamin ketahanan pangan dan di sisi lain juga berperan terhadap pemulihan ekonomi,” ujar Ketua Komisi IV DPR.

Keberadaan perguruan tinggi menjadi sangat penting dalam pencapaian pembangunan pertanian di Indonesia karena perguruan tinggi dapat memberikan pandangan, pemikiran, dan masukan terhadap strategi kebijakan yang akan diambil oleh Pemerintah serta menciptakan inovasi yang mampu menjamin ketersediaan pangan di era new normal pandemi Covid 19.

”Stimulus ekonomi dan kemandirian pangan adalah penting untuk bertahan pada era pandemi Covid 19, solusi dalam ketahanan pangan adalah pengembangan produksi skala rumah tangga dan substitusi impor, IPB sudah dan akan terus melakukan pengembangan inovasi yang menggandeng para petani milenial dalam produksi pangan untuk menyuplai kebutuhan-kebutuhan pangan di kota-kota besar di seluruh Indonesia,” ujar Rektor IPB University.

General Lecture “The Global Crisis: How Do We Act?” By ; Dr. Ir. Anny Ratnawati, MS

IPB Business School organizes general a special lecture for the SB-IPB community with speakers. Dr. Ir. Anny Ratnawati, MS (16/5). Sheis a lecturer at IPB Business School, at the same timepractitioners who had served as Representatives Minister of Finance. There were 132 participants following the general lecture on the theme “CrisisGlobal: How Do We Act? ”. Activities opened and moderated by Prof. Noer Azam Achsani as Dean of the SB IPB Business School at 10.00 WIB, followed by an explanation by the speaker. Data was shown at the beginning of the presentation world economy and growth predictions global economy 2020 will be tough enough. Dr. Ir. Anny Ratnawati also conveyed that the predicted numbers have never happened where almost all countries experience economic contraction simultaneously. On projectionIndonesia’s growth itself shows divergence amid the uncertainties predicted by various institutions.

Dr. Anny briefly discussed the crisis experienced by Indonesia in 1997-1998, 2011, and 2018 as material for reflection so that we can best respond to the current crisis. Further the data shows that economic activity in almost all countries especially in the service sector showed a sharp decline in March 2020. Data Volatility Index initially increased in January to March, began to declinein April which showed less volatility. Hopefully this is a relatively stable signal because in some countries, the effects of COVID-19 can be controlled. Other data shows that the increase in inflation in Indonesia is considered very low, amounting to 0.08 percent because generally if you enter the month of Ramadan and approach Eid al-Fitr, there will be relative inflationhigh.

Another interesting data is that Indonesia’s trade balance was surplus in March amounting to 743.4 million US Dollars. This surplus was caused by a faster decline in imports than export. It was also stated that monetary and fiscal policies need to be encouraged to improve consumption, investment, state spending, and to cover the possibility of insufficient net exportsin driving the economy. The 2020 APBN adjustments are one example of how fiscal expansion is carried out. Widening a deficit of more than 3 percent is due to decreasing state income, while state spending must improved in relation to emergency response. In this case the government has implemented a counter syclical policy.

Then how do we behave or respond to this COVID-19 crisis? So as not to fall too deep, hence food stability must be the key, including availability, distribution and price. Learning Furthermore, from the past crisis, political stability must be maintained, must ensure the group. The lower class has sufficient life and food needs, and maintains the middle class society don’t panic. In essence, as a good society, what needs to be done is to maintain body immunity, lifestyle, and follow the rules that are enforced. At the end of his presentation, he emphasized that a country must have three main resilience namely food, energy and water security.

The discussion and question and answer session was very interactive, various problems were discussed and discussed in the Virtual Room Zoom. At the beginning of the discussion, Bu Anny provoked him by saying one question “what to do with the demographic dividend that is starting to happen now with peak in 2050? ”. Followed by various questions from the participants regarding crisis 2020, demographic bonuses, local food, village funds, banking risk in times of crisis, assistance Direct Cash (BLT), to matters relating to export-import and resource utilization local power. At the end, was conveyed by Mrs. Anny, “Let us keep the spirit and believe that this crisis is ends soons and contains a goodness. With difficulties, there must be convenience, stay positive thinking
