Politala- Community Service (PkM) is one of the Tri Dharma of Higher Education and activities that are routinely carried out by the academic community of the Tanah Laut State Polytechnic. This time the PkM activities were carried out by the Agroindustry Study Program and Politala Accounting Study Program at the Kunyit Village Office, Tanah Laut Regency. (16/11)

M.Si, Coordinator of Accounting Study Program Rina Pebriana, S.E., M.Comm, lecturers and students of Agroindustry Study Program and Politala Accounting Study Program.

Kunyit Village was chosen as the place for PkM activities to be carried out, because Kunyit Village has the potential for agricultural and plantation products that can be processed into superior village products, such as bananas and sweet potatoes.
