LEBAK, Saco-Indonesia.com — Naiknya harga jengkol di sejumlah daerah hingga menyentuh angka Rp 50.000 per kilogram memicu spekulasi soal pemicunya. Apa kira-kira penyebabnya?

Para pedagang di Pasar Rangkasbitung, Kabupaten Lebak, Banten, misalnya, menduga kenaikan tersebut akibat terjadi kelangkaan di pasaran. Suryani, seorang pedagang sayur-sayuran di Pasar Rangkasbitung mengatakan, sejak tiga pekan terakhir, pasokan jengkol dari petani menghilang.

Menghilangnya pasokan jengkol kemungkinan karena belum memasuki musim panen.

"Karena itu, jika ada jengkol dipastikan harganya melambung hingga mencapai Rp 50.000/kg atau melebihi harga daging ayam sebesar Rp 25.000. Harga normal jengkol bisanya sekitar Rp20 ribu/kg," katanya.

Sementara itu, Soleh, seorang pedagang di Pasar Rangkasbitung, menduga pasokan jengkol dari sejumlah petani di Kabupaten Lebak berkurang karena banyak pohon jengkol ditebang untuk keperluan bangunan perumahan maupun kerajinan rumah tangga.

"Berkurangnya pasokan jengkol itu karena banyak pohon jengkol beralih fungsi menjadi perumahan maupun perkebunan. Sebelumnya, sentra jengkol di Kabupaten Lebak hampir merata di setiap kecamatan," ujarnya.

Ia mengatakan, saat ini, jengkol di Rangkasbitung dipasok dari Provinsi Lampung dan Palembang.

"Kami berharap petani bisa mengembangkan kembali tanaman jengkol karena permintaan pasar cukup tinggi," katanya.

Kepala Pasar Rangkasbitung Dedi Rahmat mengakui selama ini pasokan jengkol di pasaran menghilang sehingga pedagang terpaksa berjualan komoditas lain. Mereka para pedagang jengkol saat ini beralih menjadi pedagang buah-buahan maupun umbi- umbian akibat kelangkaan tersebut.

"Saya kira kelangkaan jengkol ini kali pertama akibat belum tibanya musim panen juga banyak pohon jengkol digunakan untuk pembangunan rumah," katanya.

Apa Shiih yang Menyebabkan Harga Jengkol Melonjak?

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
