The aims of this study were to produce Inpari IR Nutri Zinc seeds and determine their development targets. The rice seeds produced in 2000 were 3,090 kg (1 ha), and in 2021, it was 6,155 kg (2 ha). The development location of Inpari IR Nutri Zinc is directed at areas that have a high stunting rate by paying attention to the suitability of agroecosystems. Some of the development obstacles encountered include the availability of seeds, resistance to crackle disease, lower productivity compared to previous varieties, and transaction costs. Policy steps that need to be carried out by the Government include i) producing rice seeds of the Inpari IR Nutri Zinc variety, ii) source seed assistance is given to seed producers, while extension seed assistance is given to farmers and the Agricultural Extension Office / Center for plot demonstration activities, iii) Farmers need to be encouraged to be able to adapt to new habits / plant varieties that are different from before, through socialization with the Multi-Channel Dissemination Spectrum (SDMC) approach, iv) The Government makes the programs to maintain national food security and nutrition a priority.
