In Picture: Mentan SYL Tinjau Vertical Dryer di Luwu Timur

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, LUWU TIMUR -- Menteri Pertanian Syahrul Yasin Limpo kunjungi Kabupaten Luwu Timur, Provinsi Sulawesi Selatan dalam rangka meresmikan dan meninjau unit vertical  dryer bantuan Kementerian Pertanian APBN 2020 di Desa Balirejo, Kecamatan Angkona, Jumat (27/11). 

Mentan SYL mengatakan bahwa sesuai arahan Presiden Joko Widodo, daerah-daerah yang memiliki potensi  dan produktivitasnya tinggi harus diintervensi melalui mekanisasi terutama pada sektor hilir. 

Aspek hilir terutama pascapanen selain  combine harvester, RMU, keberadaan dryer juga penting agar terbangun penanganan pascapanen hasil pertanian yang baik dengan sistem pengelolaan yang terstruktur.

Dengan adanya bantuan, Mentan SYL berharap produktivitas dan kualitas produksi meningkat karena walaupun musim hujan sudah ada mesin pengering. 

"Saya senang, lihat RMU-nya bagus, dryer bagus. Ini akan lebih efisien dan meningkatkan produktivitas" katanya. 

Modernisasi dan mekanisasi sektor pertanian menurutnya sudah menjadi keharusan untuk memenuhi kebutuhan pangan bagi 273 juta penduduk Indonesia.
