He said, in addition to marketing-related training, new projects can also be highlighted that should bring profit to entrepreneurs or young PPK members.

“For example papaya and ‘rock melon’ plants that we know have the potential to get demand in the market. So, we will focus on these crops for young farmers who are really interested.

“After all, PPK membership is now 90 percent among those aged 60 and over. So, we need to highlight young people as backups in the future,” said Zamri.
