INDUSTRY.co.id - Karawang - Candidate vice Governor of West Java Dedi Mulyadi will optimize agricultural insurance program of farmers who fail to harvest if elected at 2018 Governor Election.

Technically, he said, West Java Provincial Government can cooperate with government appointed institutions. It is considered important to reduce losses suffered by farmers due to crop failure.

"This program will be able to prevent farmers from losses due to crop failure, so they do not have to worry and trouble when exposed to floods or pest attacks," he said.
