Study on risk of Chrysantemum flower supply chain in Indonesia

The distribution of chrysanthemum flowers from Bandungan District to consumers in the city can be at risk of damage. This study aims to determine the risk sources and types in the chrysanthemum supply chain; analyze risk probability and impact risk as well as risk capacity management among the chrysanthemum supply chain agents, and identify the risk priority in the chrysanthemum supply chains based on the level of loss and vulnerability.

Data collection was conducted between April and September 2019 at Bandungan sub-district Semarang district. This study interviewed fifty farmers, fifteen middlemen, eight suppliers, and twenty-five florists. Additionally, there were also interviewed three experts regarding chrysanthemum farming. These were the leader of Astha Bunda Kalirang farmers group, the head of the marketing division of Astha Bunda Kaliurang Farmers Group, and staff on BPTP in Yogyakarta. Data was analyzed using Rapid Agricultural Risk Assessment (RapAgRisk).

Results showed that there were six risk sources and 23 risk types that were present along the chrysanthemum supply chain. Six risks source such as natural hazards, weather, market, management and operational, logistical and infrastructure, and plant biological and environmental. Supply chain actors who have the highest risk are at the farmer level.
