Pepper harvest in Lampung has begun, but picking activity was not brisk, since production of this year crop season is not encouraging. Very few berries are seen on vines and not uniform. Pepper gardens in East Lampung are relatively good, but yield is reportedly much lower than last year harvest. Poor and tin gardens are observed in many areas in North Lampung.
Some farmers reported that output of this year harvest in their garden only 20% of normal harvest. General opinion said that output of this year harvest in East Lampung is substantially less than last year harvest.
