Martapura, South Kalimantan (AntaranewsKalsel) - The Banjar Agriculture, Plantation and Livestock Agency (Distanbunak) ready to open 1,000 hectares of new rice fields to boost agricultural production in the district.


Head of Distanbunak Banjar Dondit Bekti in Martapura on Sunday said land and ownership status is not a problem and ready to be farmed out.

"The land and the ownership status is not a problem, but we can not work alone to open the land. We ask the Army (TNI) for help to work," he said

The location of new rice fields scattered in several villages in the sub-district of West Martapura, such as Sungai Rangas Village, Sungai Rangas Hambuku and Sungai Batang.

300 hectares of the land has been surveyed in the form of Survey Investigation Design (SID) and ready to be opened into a new rice field.

"The remaining 700 hectares has not been surveyed and can not be farmed out. However, it will be done in the near future," he said.

According to him, the obstacle encountered was the condition of the land is still inundated by water that rising in recent months, making work hard in the field.

In addition, the location is not in one overlay but spread sporadically impeding the opening of new land for the rice cultivation.

"However, we've got the information, Army soldiers ready to open the land even though they are under water but it can still be done and re-opened as soon as possible," he said.

In addition to opening new rice fields, he added, some agricultural support facilities such as farm roads and block will be built at site.

"The goal is that agricultural activities can be as desired so new paddy fields could really contribute a lot of rice production," he said.
