WBI Polytechnic Supports Mocaf Development, Increases Cassava Farmer’s Income

Medan (pewarta.co) - Wilmar Bisnis Indonesia (WBI) Polytechnic said that it was ready to support the development of cassava processing into mocaf (modified cassava flour) or modification of cassava into flour by cassava farmers."We are ready to facilitate the equipment, place, time and funding opportunities to help cassava farmers in developing the mocaf so that it becomes more valuable," said Director of WBI Polytechnic Aldon MHP Sinaga MMA in the campus at Batu Sihombing Medan Estate, Deli Serdang, Wednesday (7 / 11/2018).


The support has been shown by the WBI Polytechnic who recently conducted community service through the Community Partnership Program (PKM) to increase the income of cassava farmers in Namo Suro Baru Village, Sibiru-biru. PKM activities carried out by WBI Polytechnic lecturers were funded by the Directorate of Research and Community Service (DRPM) of Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (Kemenristek Dikti).Aldon explained that the modification of cassava flour or cassava flour was to resemble the physical properties of flour.According to him, knowledge about the modification could be further disseminated. He understands that this new stage of the modification is still introduced to some farmers."If it can be disseminated, more people will know," he said accompanied by Amelira Haris Nasution, a lecturer in Horticulture Agribusiness at the WBI Polytechnic who gave training materials to cassava farmers.


Aldon saw the hope of the research team that the modifications could not only be done at the factory. However, it can be done at the household level. According to him, this can develop a populist economy."We have to imagine that every cassava farmer, a cassava farmer, can make his own mocaf flour which if the same standard can be collected later, then it can be a big result. So, it doesn't have to provide one factory that makes mocaf, "he said.He admitted, currently mocaf flour is still not very popular in North Sumatra. For this reason, there needs to be done researching and developing its use for anything."Mocaf flour is suitable for anything, whether it is for sponge or fried banana coating flour, for example.So if the usage is clear, the market opportunity will be obvious, and of course the production will be increased, "Aldon said.Amelira Haris Nasution added, usually cassava is only processed into starch or tapioca flour so far, which is rarely processed into wheat flour."In fact, rather than the imports of wheat flour, it is better to diversify food that can improve the agro-agricultural industry," Amelira said.


The presence of the WBI Polytechnic in the village where the PKM was implemented, according to Amelira, trained cassava farmers to process cassava into flour that was nearly like flour."Cassava is modified through fermentation using lactobacillus plantarum. The fermented products are processed into flour, "he said.He believes the processing of cassava into mocaf can increase the income of cassava farmers in the Namo Suro Baru Village.Amelira assessed that the village is a fairly large cassava producing area in the Deliserdang. So far they have sold 'raw' sweet potatoes, not yet processed. Even if it is processed it can be of higher value, added value.
He stated that PKM activities were chaired by Nirmala Purba, a lecturer in the Tax Accounting Study Program at the WBI Polytechnic and also attended by other lecturers, Hanter.Three lecturers who conducted PKM, including himself, repeatedly came to the village to provide training for one year. Somemore, the Chairperson of the WBI Polytechnic LPPM Hendra Marbun was also present.Submission of assistance in the form of two pairs of retaining devices and cassava enumerators was held on August 25th, 2018."After the equipment is given, then we provide assistance to partner farmers," Amelira said.

Beware of Hoax Incite Provocation | Kopertis: Validity Status of Wilmar Polytechnic

 

Medan - Director of Wilmar Bisnis Indonesia (WBI) Polytechnic Aldon MHP Sinaga MMA regrets the news in irresponsible online media without checks and confirmation, which can harm other parties."We invite the public to be aware of the news that some online medias are irresponsible who are 'frying' the 2015 news regarding 243 campuses deactivated in Indonesia, one of which is the WBI Polytechnic," Aldon said at the Jalan Batu Sihombing Medan Estate campus, Deliserdang, Wednesday (8/11 ). Aldon explained that in the news on one of the online media on October 10th 2016 wrote a list of 243 campuses that could not register CPNS because it was deactivated by the Ministry of Education and Culture.Even though one year earlier precisely on October 6th, 2015, the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education had clarified about the non-active campus which was not a licensed or revoked permit. It is natural, that the WBI Polytechnic, which was established in August 2015, was declared "in coaching" in September 2015.


Likewise, on October 28th, 2015 the Ministry of Research and Technology clarified that it was not correct to issue a fatwa or regulation stating that the status of education “in coaching” could not take the 2016 CPNS test, because it was not his authority but the Ministry of Administrative Reform and Bureaucratic Reform (KemenPAN-RB).In addition, on the same date, Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education(Kemenristekdikti) appealed not to contribute to spreading hoax news which incited provocation by "re-edging" the news."We regret irrational reporting without seeing the timeline by loading non-updated news in the October 10th, 2016 edition, while the Ministry of Research and Technology has clarified the status one year before," Aldon said.Specifically different from the other campuses mentioned in the news, WBI Polytechnic is in no way included in the coaching because of committing a violation because when the list was circulated, the WBI Polytechnic had just obtained an establishment permit.Aldon further said that in 2016 the WBI Polytechnic had been given additional permission to hold the Horticulture Agribusiness Study Program andsubsequently in 2017 was granted permission to organize the Event and Convention Management Study Program.


"The government will not give permission for the implementation of new study programs on problematic campuses, but will only be given to campuses that show good ability and reputation to develop the new study program," he said.With the invalid news and "stale", according to the legislation, his party has expressed objections to the online media as it is feared that it could cause inconveniences for students or parents."Actually, among the students it has been conveyed about invalid reporting accompanied by evidence and clarification from the Kemenristekdikti and they understand. But we do not want the parents of students to join in, "he said.
According to Aldon, he hoped that some online media could provide an explanation regarding trite and invalid reporting while clarifying the news in accordance with the statement from the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education.

On the other hand, the North Sumatra Region I Kopertis Coordinator Prof. Dian Armanto as an extension of the Ministry of Research and Technology and Higher Education also regretted the news that the source was invalid.Dian Armanto acknowledged, based on data from Kemenristekdikti, WBI Polytechnic is one of 243 campuses on the list but the status of the WBI Polytechnic is valid at all.Dian said, it can be tracked on the page https://forlap.ristekdikti.go.id/perguruantinggi as a database of higher education (PDPT) which is useful for regulating, planning, monitoring, checking and evaluating campuses in Indonesia.According to Dian Armanto, the PDPT shows data on each PTS or PTN both the number of lecturers, students and the status of accreditation or study programs.
