The implementation of this program is considered successful with the increasing standard of living of the farmers.

Through the Agriculture sector, they continue to make achievements at the National level. The assessment included management and guidance of farmer groups incorporated in Gapoktan to how to improve the welfare of farmers through the programs implemented.

Of course the leadership of H Suyatno in creating a better life of the peasant community has been proven. The proof, a number of achievements have been successfully carved by Rohil farmers at the National level.

Under the auspices of the Mainstay Fisheries Farmers Contact (KTNA) Rohil has been invited to the Jakarta Palace to receive a national award as an outstanding Gapoktan.

To achieve and win awards at the national level, many selection and stages must be passed by Gapoktan Muktijaya. Namely through selection at the regency and Riau provinces to the national level.

The assessment, namely covering management and guidance for farmer groups incorporated in Gapoktan to how to improve the welfare of farmers through the programs implemented.


Various Sectors Reap Achievements


Wisdom of Suyatno as Rohil's leader is undoubtedly, various sectors have been proven to reap the achievements that are known both from the news of the mouth and from the mass media. As the National program promoted by the Indonesian President Jokowidodo related to national food security is highly deemed necessary, Rohil also occupies an important position there, even today the Regency Government of Rohil is promoting the program's activities.

The Regional Government of Rohil is committed to 2017 food self-sufficiency in the future. The success is believed to be achieved in collaboration with the Regional Government, TNI and farmer groups.

That it was also known before when he was still joining Bengkalis Regency, Rokan Hilir Regency was the largest rice barn in Riau Province. However, now rice production has declined between the many functions of land.

To restore the glory of the past in the program to improve national food security, the regional government joined hands with the Army, farmer groups, to overcome this problem later. The results can be felt in the next three years, the agricultural sector in Rohil Regency can increase rapidly, and develop as one of the largest rice-producing regions in Riau Province.

As instructed by Priseden RI Joko Widodo, that Indonesia must be a food self-sufficiency area.

Instead, the local government and the DPRD are trying to advance the agricultural, corn and soybean sectors in the next three years. Most importantly, according to the regent, Rohil district must be the best in agriculture and secondary crops. Evidently, Rohil Regency is still the best of its soybeans. And, the Darusalam region has a very potential area for soybean and maize plants, this hope is to be maintained. The target, Indonesia must be a 2017 food self-sufficiency region.

If Indonesia cannot implement a food self-sufficiency program, it is certain that a future food crisis will occur. Because, he continued, there is now a food and water energy war.

That is very ironic if the country of Indonesia is given a large wealth of natural energy but cannot be used properly and correctly. Hopefully the presence of the TNI as a companion can be an advocate for agricultural extension workers.

The point of this activity is to synergize the food self-sufficiency program. Hopefully the presence of the TNI can be a motivation in the community of farmer groups. and hope this activity can be successful until 2017, in the future, and can be self-sufficient in food.
 

Rokan Hilir ten years ago had an area of ??43 thousand hectares of agricultural crops, along with the passage of time when land was changed, and now there are only 32 thousand hectares. Following up on the plan to develop agricultural areas, he continued, the Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Service took measurements in 2013, resulting in only 12,709 hectares of agricultural land remaining.

And in 2014, the target of planting a year was 12 thousand people but the realization of 14 ribuctars. Plans for the maintenance of a 3,000 hectare tier network, for 2015,

Transverse dirimbo can be planted 3 times a year, meaning the 300 Planting Index. Then, in Rimbo Melintang it has pumping to regulate water irrigation. Rohil Regency itself has an area of ??141 hectares which is still in Quo status, and is constrained to not be able to be processed into additional agricultural areas.

While the growth rate in the period of 2009-2013 land conversion took place. The problem is, as many as 9,458 hectares occur on land with an average of 47 thousand hectares.

The total damage to the area's irrigation canal infrastructure is 1,983.15 kilometers and the swamp area is 4 kilometers more. With a calculation of 82 61 percent, and swamp area 78.29 percent

Low productivity, low quality of HR of farmers in the application of technology and management, and supporting institutions have not run optimally and farmers' acceleration of capital is weak.

Rokan Hilir Regency Government, under the leadership of Regent H Suyatno, is committed to implementing an agricultural program in his area. this program aims to realize the target of self-sufficiency in rice in Rohil, in creating food security nationally.
 
Food Security is a national program from the central government and the Rohil Regency Government welcomes the 2017 National food self-sufficiency program initiated by President Joko Widodo. Evidence of the Rohil Regency Government program in improving the welfare of farmers in Rohil today, planting rice twice in Rimba Melintang District, is a manifestation of the concern of the Rohil Regency Government.

He explained that with a number of potentials owned by the sub-district, the Agriculture Service continued to make various efforts and new breakthroughs to improve the quality and quantity of rice yields in the area.

 

"At this time, I hope that the community does not think of shifting the function of agricultural land into oil palm plantations. In other words, the community should not believe in the assumptions with the many yields of oil palm plantations, because of the comparison of one hectare of rice fields and one hectare of oil palm plantations , then the yield of paddy rice is far from the yield of the oil palm. In addition, the operational costs incurred by paddy farmers are less than the operational costs of oil palm plantations. Approximately the ratio is 70: 30 percent, "said the Regent.
 
In an effort to increase agricultural production, especially rice (rice), Pelalawan Regency Government also provided a number of assistance in the form of agricultural machinery (Alsinta) to process rice fields such as hand tractors, planting tools, harvesting tools, assistance of superior seeds to training farmers.
