TEGAL. Rumah Zakat along with Field Agricultural Extension (PPL) held counseling about the importance of farmer cards to the farmer of Karya Bhakti group on Sunday (24/09).
The event was held at Mr. Tasrip’s house as the chairman of RT Dukuh Gayam, it was attended by about 30 farmers. The farmers were so enthusiastic to follow the event that started from 14.30-16.00 because this new agricultural-related extension activity was held in Gayam Hamlet.
Counseling of the importance of farmers’ cards was initiated by facilitator of Rumah Zakat who saw that most of the farmers in Banjaranyar Village did not have farmer card yet. There are 180 farmers of 438 in Banjaranyar Village who already have farmer card because they have not received accurate, reliable information about the importance of having farmer card.
“Hopefully this counseling will be able to build awareness of farmers about the importance of farmer cards for them so that they will make the cards, because only with farmers’ cards the farmers can easily obtain fertilizer at subsidized price” said Miska as the facilitator of Rumah Zakat.
At the end of the event, Samadi S.St as PPL conveyed the pleasure of being able to meet with the farmers, and discuss many agricultural shelters. “I am very glad to have the opportunity to meet with you all. In shaa Allah in the future agricultural extension activities we can hold regularly” said Mr. Samadi.
