The low productivity of East Java and West Nusa Tenggara as the second and third national producers of shallots are generally due to traditional agricultural practices, the use of low-quality seeds, lack of information about pest and plant disease control management, and limited storage so that farmers cannot enjoy the higher benefits of prices in the harvest period.

PRISMA worked with partners to increase the availability and use of quality agricultural inputs, development of true shallot seedlings (TSS), promote agricultural practices, introduce integrated pest and disease management techniques, encourage the use of appropriate technology, and reduce the use of pesticides.

Up to December 2018, 12,756 farmers in East Java and NTB experienced increased incomes with a total value of IDR 143.1 billion.

PRISMA does not continue to work in this sector, based on the analysis results of sector's performance and achievement.
