TEMPO Interactive, Brebes: Brebes-produced potatoes are consumed in the US and are exported by a Singaporean broker. “This is because there is a trust factor that Indonesian products contain pesticides,” Sodikin, the Brebes Agriculture, Forestry and Plantation Office head in charge of production sales, said yesterday.

Sodikin said that Singaporean businessmen were using the environmental edge to sell the products to American businessmen. “I’m suspicious that Singapore has technology to change the chemical substance in potatoes,” he said.

Indonesia-Brebes Farmers’ Association chief, Masrukhi Backro, confirmed the suspicion. Sodikin is suspicious of Singapore’s involvement in free trade between advanced countries.
