Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The Central Statistics Agency (BPS) recorded that the Farmer’s Exchange Rate (NTP) in October 2023 was 115.78 or an increase of 1.43% compared to September 2023. The increase occurred because the price index received by farmers rose higher than the price index paid by farmers. So will this increase make farmers more prosperous?

Deputy General Chairperson for Agrarian Affairs, HKTI Farmer Youth, Didik Setiawan, said that the increase did not have a significant impact on farmers, due to many factors, starting from the small area of ​​land, prices of other necessities, low productivity due to El Niño and the increase in fertilizer prices.
