Must read

JAKARTA – Statistics Indonesia (BPS) predicted corn production in 2023 will decline 12.5 percent from last year.

It recorded that Indonesia’s production of dry shelled corn with a moisture content of 14% (JPK KA 14%) in 2022 is 16.53 million tons. This achievement will be reduced to 14.46 million tons this year.

This is the first time for the country to see a decline in corn production in the last four years.

In 2020, JPKA KA 14% production was recorded at 12.93 million tons, which then increased to 13.41 million tons in 2021 before jumping as much as 23.20 percent in 2022.

Head of BPS Amalia Adininggar Widyasanti explained that the decline in corn production was seen in a total of 28 provinces in Indonesia.

Thus, there are only five provinces that show an increase in production, namely North Sumatra, Banten, Riau, North Kalimantan and the Riau Islands.

The five provinces with the largest decline in production were East Java, Lampung, West Nusa Tenggara, Central Java and Gorontalo.

The dry shelled corn (JPK) harvest area was also reported to have decreased compared to last year.

BPS noted that Indonesia’s JPK harvest area in 2022 reached 2.76 million hectares. That figure is expected to decrease by 10.03 percent this year, to 2.49 million hectares.

This harvest area is calculated based on the results of observations of the corn growth phase through field observations of the Corn Area Sample Frame (KSA) survey which has been implemented since 2020.
