Knowing that hydroponic farming continues to develop in Jakarta, he wants Cianjur to also implement hydroponic farming.
"W e will discuss it further in commission meeting," he added.
Jakarta KPKP Department's Agriculture Department Head, Diah Meidianti stated, local government support is needed by making local regulation or policy that can optimize urban farming implementation.
