Indonesia’s agro-commodities sourcing company Seger Agro Nusantara recently exported 6300 tons of corn to the Philippines from Gorontalo, valued at USD 3 million. In early June, the company exported 6100 tons of the grain to the same destination. Seger’s exports were based on the attractive price it received from the neighboring country. Gorontalo’s Governor, Rusli Habibie said his province last year produced 1.4 mt of corn on a planting area of 291,000 ha. This year the province will increase the planting area to above 320,000 ha.
