Chemical pest control is the most common method utilized by farmers to control agricultural pests and diseases in Indonesia. Unfortunately, majority of Indonesian farmers are not well informed with the danger of pesticide applications which has serious impacts on human health and agricultural ecosystem. Various reports indicates that illegal and banned pesticides are available for sale in the market. Considering the hazardous effects of illegal pesticides uses in the long run, this case study was aimed to study monitoring system for the application and distribution of banned pesticides in two region, i.e. Lampung (Tanggamus) and South Sumatra (South Ogan Komering Ulu). The survey was mainly focused to gather facts about the implementation of Chapter 13, Permentan No. 107/Permentan/SR.140/9/2014. Farmers perception on pesticide regulation was also gathered through interviews and questionaires. Our iinterviews and document confirmation indicated that Fertilizer and Pesticide Supervisory Commission (Komisi Pengawasan Pupuk dan Pestisida, KP3) has been established in Lampung dan South Sumatra. The commission, however, was not effective in supervising the implementation of pesticide regulation since only 1-2 provincial pesticide supervisory meetings were held annually. Our interviews also revealed that the meeting topics were more focused on fertilizer cases: distribution, subsidized fertilizer, fertilizer forgery, fertilizer quality etc. Pesticide cases were rarely discussed in the meeting. Responses from questionaires shows that majority of farmers obtained information about pesticide from retailers (47%) and from other farmers (39%). Only 14% of respondents acknowledge that they received pesticide information from agricultural extension officers. Our questionnaires also indicate that personnel of the pesticide industry have a significant role in transferring information related pesticide to farmers (47%).
