Tuban, Jawa Timur (B2B) - Pemerintah RI mengalokasikan pupuk bersubsidi untuk 2018 hingga 9,55 juta ton, Kementerian Pertanian mengintegrasikan dengan Kartu Tani untuk distribusinya. Tujuannya agar petani yang berhak membeli pupuk bersubsidi sudah melalui validasi dan verifikasi online di database perbankan yang menjadi provider Kartu Tani.

Sekretaris Direktorat Jenderal Prasarana dan Sarana Pertanian (PSP) Kementan  Abdul Madjid menegaskan komitmen pemerintah untuk terus melakukan perbaikan dalam melakukan distribusi pupuk bersubsidi, khususunya alokasi 9,55 juta ton pada 2018 yang terintegrasi dengan Kartu Tani yang didukung bank-bank BUMN dari Himpunan Bank Negara (Himbara).

"Validasi dan verfikasi online tujuannya agar pemerima pupuk bersubsidi tepat sasaran, nanti petani menebus pupuk dengan Kartu Tani, kalau sudah melibatkan bank maka layanan online pasti akan jalan. Petani atau kelompok tani yang tidak punya Kartu Tani maka tidak dilayani," kata Abdul Madjid saat membuka kegiatan 'Press Tour Ditjen PSP Kementan' di Kabupaten Tuban, Jatim, Rabu malam (11/10) mewakili Dirjen PSP Pending Dadih Permana yang berhalangan hadir.

Menurutnya, Kartu Tani akan mendukung upaya pengawasan lebih ketat terhadap penyaluran pupuk bersubsidi, pihak-pihak yang berniat menyelewengkan atau mengoplos pupuk bersubsidi harus 'berpikir dua kali' karena TNI dan Polri mendukung langkah Kementan melakukan pengawasan dan pemantauan distribusi pupuk bersubsidi agar tepat sasaran.

Kepala Dinas Pertanian dan Tanaman Pangan Tuban, Murtadjie mengatakan kebutuhan pupuk bersubsidi di seluruh Kabupaten Tuban pada 2017 mencapai 372.000 ton, namun yang terealisasi hanya 30% atau 110.000 ton dari pemerintah pusat.

"Kami memahami keterbatasan anggaran pemerintah pusat, karena kabupaten lain juga membutuhkan pupuk bersubsidi. Petani Tuban berupaya mandiri, tidak dapat pupuk bersubsidi ya beli yang non-subsidi," kata Murtadjie yang didampingi Komandan Kodim (Dandim) 0811/Tuban, Letkol Inf Sarwo Supriyo.

Mengantisipasi keterbatasan tersebut, Murtadji dan Dandim Tuban menggelar rapat koordinasi dengan distributor, kios-kios pedagang pupuk, kelompok tani (Poktan), gabungan kelompok tani (Gapoktan) dan penyuluh pertanian untuk mengantisipasi aksi penyelewengan dan mafia pupuk memanfaatkan kekurangan pupuk di Tuban.

"Saya ingat seruan Dandim saat itu, mafia atau Dandim yang kalah. Alhamdulillah bisa teratasi, dan saya lebih tenang karena TNI AD mem-back up kami bekerja   mendukung pengawasan distribusi pupuk," kata Murtadjie.

Dia pun mengungkap tentang kiat Dandim dan dirinya membentuk WA Group Pupuk Tuban, untuk memantau ketersediaan dan kebutuhan pupuk per hari yang dilaporkan lengkap dengan foto/video, kalau tanpa foto berarti laporannya hoax," kata Murtadjie.
