    At AMDA Malino Farm in Batulapisi on the island of South Sulawesi, Indonesia, the local farmers are keen to cultivate organic vegetables and fruits besides making rice.

    The innovators who started growing organic lettuce after purchasing its seeds in Makassar (the region’s capital) were Mr. Thalib and Mr. Jamal. The two influenced others to have a go at applying organic methods in making crops other than rice. Until now, the farmers have planted mustard plants, carrots, onions and cabbage in their fields.

      At a supermarket in Makassar

      In mid-April, I paid a visit to Malino’s Batulapisi district in South Sulawesi to monitor the AMDA Food Program, a program to promote (active) organic farming.  
      Before visiting the farm, I dropped by a local supermarket in Makassar, the provincial capital, to do a little research on how AMDA’s organic rice has been sold. One bag of rice was priced at 66,599 IDR (roughly 530 JPY or 4.80 USD) per two kilos.
