Jakarta (B2B) - Kementerian Pertanian RI didukung kementerian dan lembaga terkait membentuk tim khusus lintas kementerian dan lembaga (K/L) untuk program serap gabah petani disingkat Sergap, dengan fleksibilitas harga pembelian pemerintah (HPP) dari Rp3.700 ke Rp4.070 bertujuan menyelamatkan petani, target serap 4,4 juta ton gabah setara 2,2 juta ton beras hingga Juni 2018.

Tim Sergap yang digagas Kementan didukung Kementerian BUMN, Kementerian Desa - Pembangunan Daerah Tertinggal dan Transmigrasi, Bank BRI, TNI AD, petugas penyuluh lapangan (PPL), dan Kontak Tani Nelayan Andalan (KTNA).

"Prinsip petani sangat sederhana. Kalau sudah untung, dia tanam padi lagi. Kesejahteraan petani harus kita perhatikan. Kalau harga di bawah HPP, petani rugi, akibatnya tidak mau tanam. Harusnya tanam dua kali, bisa jadi hanya tanam satu kali," kata Mentan Andi Amran Sulaiman saat panen padi di Desa Wotan, Kecamatan Sukolilo, Kabupaten Pati, Jawa Tengah (7/2).

Panen padi di Kabupaten Pati berlangsung di area seluas 1.753 hektar yang ditanami varietas Inpari 32 dan Ciherang, produktivitas 9,2 ton per hektar, dan Mentan ke Pati untuk memastikan harga gabah di Jawa Tengah tidak anjlok di bawah HPP setelah sempat turun hingga Rp1.000 per kg, dan setelah kunjungan Amran Sulaiman maka harga gabah merangkak naik ke Rp4.200 kg.

"Harga ini harus dijaga agar jangan sampai turun lagi, inilah gunanya tim Sergap bergerak langsung ke jantung produksi padi di Jateng," kata Mentan.
