Petrokimia Gresik, a leading player in the agro-industrial sector and a member of the Pupuk Indonesia consortium, celebrated its 51st anniversary with the introduction of two groundbreaking products: NPK Phonska Cair and Petro Cane, along with the release of the Precision Agriculture Booklet on Soil Fertility. The launch ceremony was led by Petrokimia Gresik's President Director, Dwi Satriyo Annurogo, alongside the Director of Operations and Production, Digna Jatiningsih, and the Director of Finance and General Affairs, Budi Wahju Soesilo, in Gresik, East Java.

Dwi Satriyo highlighted that the newly launched products, NPK Phonska Cair and Petro Cane, are the result of Petrokimia Gresik's innovation aimed at supporting increased productivity and the well-being of farmers in Indonesia. Extensive effectiveness tests have shown that both products significantly enhance harvest yields, with Phonska Cair boosting agricultural productivity by 19% and income by 30.36%. Similarly, Petro Cane demonstrates a remarkable 11.6% increase in productivity and a 16% rise in income.

"Moreover, these products serve as educational tools for farmers in Indonesia, encouraging them to move beyond reliance on subsidized fertilizers, the allocation and variety of which are becoming increasingly limited. This is evidence that the use of non-subsidized fertilizers can indeed improve income," stated Dwi Satriyo.

NPK Phonska Cair: Revolutionizing Liquid Compound Fertilizers

NPK Phonska Cair, a liquid-form compound fertilizer, simplifies and enhances application effectiveness. It is a foliar fertilizer with a composition of NPK 10-8-3 enriched with complete micro-nutrients and water-soluble plant growth regulators (ZPT). This formulation ensures optimal absorption through plant leaves, promoting the growth of shoots, roots, stems, leaves, flowering, and fruiting, ultimately increasing harvest yields.

Furthermore, the presence of secondary macro-nutrient magnesium aids in the formation of chlorophyll, enhancing the photosynthesis process. This versatile fertilizer is designed for all types of crops, particularly food and horticultural crops. Its liquid form facilitates easy application, supporting modern farming practices, including the use of drone technology for crop spraying.

"Petrokimia Gresik takes pride in being at the forefront, introducing Virtual Reality into digital learning methodologies, benefiting both interns and employees alike," added Dwi Satriyo.

Petro Cane: Tailored NPK Fertilizer for Sugarcane Plants

Petro Cane is a specialized NPK fertilizer designed for sugarcane plants, with a composition of NPK 15-10-15 tailored to meet the specific needs of sugarcane crops. Enriched with essential secondary and micro-nutrients, Petro Cane has proven effective in promoting sugarcane shoot and plant height growth, as well as increasing productivity and yield. The uniform grain size of the fertilizer facilitates precise application through broadcasting methods.

Precision Agriculture Booklet: Mapping Soil Fertility for Modern Farming

In conjunction with its anniversary, Petrokimia Gresik also unveiled the Precision Agriculture Booklet, a documentation of the "big data" from the Smart Precision Farming program initiated by Petrokimia Gresik for modern agriculture. The booklet contains comprehensive information on soil fertility, including Nitrogen, Potassium, Phosphorus, and pH levels across Java, Bali, and NTB. This mapping of soil fertility is highly specific, extending to the district level, covering information for 2,445 districts.

Dwi Satriyo expressed hope that these three new solutions from Petrokimia Gresik would bring significant benefits to Indonesian agriculture. "We anticipate that both products and the soil fertility booklet will assist farmers and Indonesian agriculture in enhancing productivity and prosperity, contributing to the prosperity of the nation," he concluded.
