But there are still problems that occur such as the Highest Retail Price (HIDR) and the use of Farmer Cards that have not been implemented in the field. Fertilizer subsidy policies are measured in six precise indicators, type, quantity, price, place, time, and quality. Based on the six indicators, 2 indicators of place and quality are categorized very precisely / according to the rule, while for 2 indicators of the type and the quantity can be categorized appropriately / quite according to the rule. Timely indicators can be categorized as inappropriate / not following the rules, while the price indicators for fertilizer subsidy policies can be categorized as inappropriate/very not following the rules due to the problem of price gaps in subsidized fertilizers in farmers, Line III (distributors) sell subsidized fertilizers above the Highest Retail Price (HRP) to Line IV (official kiosks) because there are additional transportation and loading and unloading costs and purchases with a pay system after harvest. Thus causing retailers to also sell subsidized fertilizer to farmers above the Highest Retail Price (HRP).
