Wali Kota Probolinggo, Rukmini mengaku berminat menanam padi Jarwo Super. Padi varietas baru tersebut memang sedang dikembangkan di Kabupaten Serang, Banten. “Saya minta Bu Ning (Kepala Dinas Pertanian dan Ketahanan Pangan (DPKP) Kota Probolinggo) kerjasama dengan Serang. Kita bawa bibitnya. Kita tanam di sini. Ngga usah banyak-banyak, tanam satu hektar saja untuk percontohan,” perintah wali kota. 

Pernyataan Rukmini tersebut disampaikan saat menghadiri acara Cangkruan di Lapangan Kodim 0820 Probolinggo, Jum’at (28/4). Itu setelah menanggapi usulan dari salah satu anggota TNI yang menginginkan Kota Probolinggo menanam varietas padi Jarwo Super tersebut. Menurutnya, dengan lahan yang tidak terlalu luas, Kota Probolinggo bisa jadi percontohan yang baik. Dalam tiap hektar, bisa menghasilkan 14-15 ton padi. 

Menyikapi keinginan wali kota tersebut, Kepala DPKP Kota Probolinggo Sukarning Yuliastuti, mengakui kalau pihaknya memang belum menanam varietas Jarwo Super. “Tiap hari kita diminta laporan. Target kita 1.600 ton, dan Alhamdulillah kita sudah memenuhi target tersebut. Saat ini hasil per hektar padi kita mencapai 9-12 ton. Terkait dengan Jarwo Super kita memang belum menanamnya. Saya akan berkoordinasi untuk membawa bibitnya dan kita tanam di Kota Probolinggo,” ujarnya. (abdurhamzah/humas)

 

Probolinggo Mayor Rukmini has admitted that she has a desire in planting the rice called Jarwo Super. The new variety of rice is now being developed in Serang Regency, Banten. “I order Ms. Ning, the head of agricultural agency of Probolinggo Municipality, to make cooperation with Serang. We can take the seed. Just take a few. Plant them in a hectare of land field for a pilot project,” the mayor stated.

It was stated when Rukmini attended event Cangkruan at the field of Military District Command of Probolinggo, Friday (28/4). The idea came from the desire of a TNI member to have Jarwo Super in the city. To him, considering that Probolinggo is a small city, it can be the pilot project for this variety. In each hectare, it can produce 14-15 tons of rice.

Responding to the desire of the mayor, the head of Agricultural Agency, Sukarning Yuliastuti admitted that the variety is not available in Probolinggo city. “We have a target of 1.600 tons and thank God, we have reached the target. For a hectare, we have reached 9-12 tons. Related to Jarwo Super, we haven’t planted it yet. I will have coordination with Serang Regency to ask for the seed and plant it in Probolinggo city,” she said.
