Ilustrasi Sawah (Dok. Kementan) - Jakarta - Inflation in the agricultural sector is quite high as it reaches 3.5 percent in the quarter of 1-2018. This is a lot of factors that affect this inflation.

Executive Director of the Head of Bank Indonesia's (BI) Department of Statistics, Yati Kurniati, said that although 3.5 percent of the agricultural sector inflation is still fairly under control.

"Agricultural inflation can be a lot of factors from the weather, distribution problems, but indeed 3.5 percent is relatively controlled," he said in Jakarta, Thursday (12/4/2018).

From this agricultural sector, he said, the contributor of inflation came from chili and onion. Chili and onion, if the rainy weather is rapidly decaying and the scarcity of supply due to weather causes are both damaged then the rise in prices that push inflation.

"The January-February volatile food source of inflation is still there is red onion, red chili related weather-related supply," he said.

Therefore, he asked the farmers to improve the way of harvest and harvest. Given these changes, it is hoped that the source of inflation can be depressed.

"Now there is an area that must be repaired by agriculture, do not depend on the weather, but agriculture improves the cost of agriculture but later on the price of agricultural products will be good," he said.
