Mung Bean

The domestic demand for mung bean reaches 288,741 tons annually. On the other hand, the plummeting trend in yields and productivity, only 1 ton per hectare in average due to the lack of available seeds, and the traditional agricultural practice, has made technological innovation, and agricultural production of mung beans highly expected.

To increase the farmers' productivity and income, PRISMA collaborates with the private sector and Indonesian Legumes and Tuber Crops Research Institute (Balitkabi) to promote the use of more productive superior seeds (Vima varieties) and good agricultural practices implementation.

In the second phase, PRISMA plans to collaborate with more partners to reach more smallholder farmers.
