INDUSTRY.co.id - Yogyakarta - Agroindustry in Indonesia in this decade is developing well especially at home industry level as well as micro, small and medium enterprises, said the lecturer of the Faculty of Agriculture, Veterans National Development University Muhammad Nurcholis.

"Indicator of agroinduistri development is one of them can be seen from the increasing number of home industries and SMEs, especially those using basic materials from agricultural products," he said in Yogyakarta, (18/10/2017)

On the sidelines of the International Conference on Green Agro Industry (ICGAI) 2017, Nurcholis said the development of agro-industries at home and UMKM levels can be seen from businesses that were originally only done by family members, then able to hire people around.

In the midst of that development, according to him, academics have a social responsibility to identify problems in order to generate a solution contribution.

"It is to support agro-industry to keep increasing both in quality and quantity," said Nurcholis who is also Chairman of ICGAI Committee 2017.

According to him, problem identification is done from all aspects, starting from "on farm" or any process process directly related to agriculture cultivation in field to "off farm" which is the process of commercialization of agricultural products.

"Therefore, academics from Asian and European countries are expected to exchange information in ICGAI, especially since these countries have different agro-industry character," he said.

In Indonesia, for example, the more prominent sector of the home industry because the majority of people have a narrow land. The condition is different from New Zealand which has a large area of ​​land as a farm location to produce large-scale milk.

He said the academics who participated in ICGAI were from Asian and European countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Japan, the Netherlands, Hungary and Indonesia. They discuss agro-industry from upstream to downstream, especially relate to food health.

"The scientific meeting is also a communication medium between academia, institutions and stakeholders in the development of agroindustry especially in the application of science and technology, innovation, and expanding the network," Nurcholis said.
