EWINDO exports 710 tons of kangkong seeds
Increasing the income of 12,500 seed growers all over in Indonesia
This symbolic event was officially carried out by General Director of Horticulture, Ministry of Agriculture of Indonesia Dr. Ir. Spudnik Sujono K, MM and ft. Glenn Pardede, MM, MBA Managing Director of EWINDO, as well as EWINDO's key farmers in seed production.
Participants in a symbolic event bid farewell to a batch of seeds to be exported from Indonesia to several other Asian countries.
Dr. Ir. Spudnik Sujono K, MM says that the collaboration between the company and farmers aligns with the government's programs. The export of vegetable seeds will expand the market and demonstrate the quality of Indonesian seed production farmers' output to international customers.
"This partnership is an excellent example of a solution for increasing farmers' incomes," said Dr. Spudnik. "With this cooperation, seed growers earn from contracts to produce seeds, which then benefits the company through a steady level of stock of high quality seeds. This is a model of partnership that should be promoted and further developed in the future: Dr. Spudnik said.
General Director of Horticulture, Ministry of Agriculture of Indonesia Dr. Ir Spudnik Sujono K, MM and Ir. Glenn Pardede, MM, MBA Managing Director of EWINDO inspect the container before it departs to be exported.
Mr. Pardede explains that the export of 710 tons of kangkong seeds would be delivered gradually until March 2018 to Japan, Myanmar and Thailand. He says that these exports are part of EWINDO's commitment to support the Indonesian government to develop the horticultural sector.
In addition to kangkong, EWINDO is also exporting 19 other crops including yard long bean, bitter gourd, pumpkin and cucumber. The total export volume by end of 2017 was estimated to reach 450 tons, exceeding its earlier yearend target of 200 tons. The export destinations of the vegetable seeds are Japan, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, India, Myanmar, Malaysia and Thailand.
Supporting farmers through innovation
Glenn explains that improving the lives of farmers is central to EWINDO's operations, from the research labs to the fields.
"We do research and development continuously to achieve the best varieties which do not only have wide adaptation but also high productivity and resistance to plant disease: said Mr Pardede.
Farmers can also improve their yields by accessing EWINDO's Knowledge Transfer team, which upskills farmers through internationally recognized methods of cultivation for quality vegetable seeds.
EWINDO's Senior Plant Manager explains to participants the packaging procedures for seeds at Ewindo after they have been treated
EWINDO supports around 12,500 production farmers, who in turn employ 62,500 pollinators, in collaborations all over West Java, East Java to Nusa Tenggara Timur and Nusa Tenggara Barat through its Knowledge Transfer activities over the past 27 years.
"We are optimistic that the more the market grows in a sustainable manner, the more we can increase farmers' income, especially among seed production farmers: Mr Pardede concluded.
