This study was designed to examine the performance in soil conservation among the farmers who rented the drawdown area of the Multi-purpose Dam of Wonogiri. The study involved a survey of 63 renters in seven subdistricts and focus group discussions and interviewed staff of the Division IV of the PT Jasa Tirta 1. In conjunction with the performance of the farmers, the team draw the following conclusions: (a) the application of multiple cropping tend to increase soil degradation, in terms of increase in sediment to the reservoir. Monoculture, in contrast, is better for soil conservation; (b) the quality of soil conservation is, therefore, varied. About 49,2% of the farmers (or 24,93% area) applied a very good level of soil conservation, 19% were good (or 24,93% area), and 17,5% were good enough (or 14,1% of area) did not achieve a good performance; of which 7,9% were bad (or 4,56% of area) and 6,3% were very bad (or 9,53% area) achievers. Those findings lead to the potential recommendation that it is important to devise standard achievement criteria for soil conservation, either for monitoring and evaluation purpose, both in the drawdown and the greenbelt as well.
To increase product need the existence of preeminent seed, because seed represent one of the crop conducting medium having role which very determine in the effort increase product and quality of crop conducting result.

Sample taken by counted 60 person who is taken at random. Data analysis is doubled linear regression.Result of regresi analysis mention that at confidence level 95% passing Test F obtained that accurate variable-variable by together mount usage of BBBA, where R2 value equal to 0,601 meaning that variation of usage BBBA influenced by free variable in model equal to 60,1%. And through Test T variable having an effect on wide of farm, Manure anad education with biggest influence sequence is usage of manure, later than education and wide of farm.
