Abstract

This study aims to analyze the shallot marketing channels, analyze the efficiency of shallot marketing, and the factors affect the efficiency of shallot marketing in Wanasari, Brebes Regency. The study was conducted in December 2018 - January 2019 in Wanasari District, Brebes Regency. The sampling of farmers respondents was carried out by the proportionate stratified random sampling method involved 100 farmers. A snowball sampling technique with 22 traders was done for marketing agency respondents. The data collected, subsequently analyzed descriptively with marketing channel patterns. The marketing efficiency, farmer's share and RPM, and factors affecting marketing efficiency were also examined. This study indicates two marketing pattern channels for shallot seedlings and three patterns for consumption. Efficient marketing channels was only in pattern I. Besides, pattern II, III, and IV were found in less efficient marketing. In contrast, pattern III was an inefficient marketing channel. The multiple linear regression test showed that the coefficient of variable selling price of farmers was negative and had a significant effect on marketing efficiency. Coefficient of the variable consumer purchase price was positive and had a significant effect on marketing efficiency. Also, coefficient of the variable number of institutions involved was negative and had a significant effect on marketing efficiency.

Abstract

Crude palm oil (CPO) is one of the leading export commodity that has contributed greatly to the Indonesian economy. The majority of CPO production is exported to various destination countries such as India, China, Pakistan, the Netherlands, and Malaysia. The proportion of Indonesian CPO exports was 80-75%, and domestic consumption was only 20-15% of total production. Indonesian CPO exports still show an increasing trend. This study aims to identify the factors that affect Indonesian CPO exports using the data from 2002-2017. This research used the multiple linear regression method of Ordinary Least Square (OLS). The results showed that CPO production, CPO prices in the international market, CPO prices in the domestic market, crude oil prices in the international market, the exchange rate of rupiah, and export rates had a significant effect on Indonesia's CPO export.

Abstract

Uncertainty of harvested area and the amount of durian production each year makes the price of the durian tend to fluctuate. Price changes can trigger price sensitivity at the consumer level. This study aimed to analyze the level of durian price sensitivity in Jepara Regency and Semarang City and analyze the factors that make the process of buying durian in Jepara Regency and Semarang City. The analysis used in this research was descriptive analysis and logistic regression analysis. The price suggests that the price of Jepara Regency and Semarang City is IDR 45,000.00 – 50,000.00. Overall price levels received durian consumers in the Semarang City was higher than Jepara Regency. Based on the results of logistic regression analysis, it is known that simultaneously the price factor, income, occupation, age, taste, shape, size, aroma, color. and size.

Abstract

Data in 2012 explained that Indonesia had dry land about 148 million ha (78%) and wetland by 40.20 million ha (22%) out of 188.20 million ha of the total land area. The variety of rice which can grow and produce well on marginal land such as gogo rice is very indispensable. This research aimed to find the gogo rice cultivars that can germinate normally in particular osmotic pressure and the tolerance limit on the drought by using PEG 6000 solution. The research was prepared with two-factor factorial design by using Completely Randomized Design. The first factor consisted of three gogo rice cultivars, namely 1. siang, 2. Pulut ko, and 3. roda, while the second factor consisted of four treatments, namely 1. water as control of 2. -1 bar, 3. -2 bar, and 4. -3 bar.Thus, there were 12 combinations of treatment in which each treatment was repeated four times. In the experiment Rolled Paper placed in plastic test method was used in which there were 50 items in each experiment unit.The variable observed was potential for growth, percentage of germination, and germination rate. The research findings reveal that the three cultivars were able to germinate normally only up to -1 bar osmotic pressure, while the pulut cultivar had higher germination capacity compared with siang and roda cultivars up to -3 bar PEG 6000 osmotic pressure. Siang cultivar and -1 bar osmotic pressure gave potential for growth, germination capacity, and germination rate.

Abstract

Water is a main factor on production input in rice farming. The need for water will increase as time progresses, but the availability of it is increasingly uncertain. One way to overcome the scarcity of water is the efficient using of water by determining the price of irrigation. This study aims to determine the price of water which is probably paid by farmers in rice farming, and to know the constraints faced by them. The research design used is quantitative descriptive. Primary data are obtained from 80 farmers taken by simple random sampling. Data analysis’ used here are analysis of descriptive, analysis of farming, and analysis of Willingness To Pay (WTP). The result of this research shows that the value of water rent in Buahdua Village is Rp. 4,428,031/ha/MT. Interviews show that almost all farmers are willing to pay the price of irrigation. The average value of PAP respondent is Rp. 61,813/ha/MT and the average value of TWTP is Rp. 28,751.891. Many obstacles faced by farmers in the use of irrigation is garbage, difficulty of getting water during the dry season, and damaged irrigation. This condition will affect the increasingly inefficient management of irrigation. Therefore, the economic value of water usage can be used as a reference asafees level by the farmers to reach efficiently.

Abstract

Mycorrhiza is a biological agent to help fertility of soil and plants. Application of mycorrhiza on the land in the form of inoculum is often used in agricultural land in the name of quality of inoculum that also influenced by the content of existing spores. One of them is growing medium. This study aimed to study the effect of soil aggregate size and P dosage on the number of mycorrhizal spores in sorghum plants. The research design used was Randomized Block Design consisting of 2 factors. First factor was soil aggregate size(μm) which consisted of 4 treatments: U1 = < 2000, U2 = 500 - 1000, U3 = 200 - 500, U4 = < 200, and second factor was P dosage: 100 mg/kg and 300mg/kg. Each treatment combination was repeated 3 times so that there were 24 units of experimental unit. Observation parameters included the percentage of the infected root, number of spores, plant height and dry weight of the plant. The research was conducted in Greenhouse and Agronomy Laboratory of Agricultural Faculty of Tadulako University Palu. The various sizes of soil aggregates do not affect the amount of arbuscular mycorrhizal spores in sorghum plants. P 100 mg/kg or f P 300 mg/kg dosage used do not address the effect of the mycorrhizal spores. There is no interaction between soil aggregate size and P dosage to the amount of mycorrhizal spores in sorghum plants.

Abstract

To improve farm products particulary cattle production, The goverment ofBondowoso District did through some policy : (1) extension program, (2) artificial insemination and (3) forage development.Although the program has been launched, there are still many problems occured. It is indicated by decreasing population of cattle, the declined result of artificial insemination and decreasing of meat production. The purpose of this research to find out the effect of extension program, artificial insemination and the development of forage on the increasing of beef cattle in Kabupaten Bondowoso. This research used explanatory research with Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) analysis. The result showed that the extension program didn’t effect improvement of beef cattle production, but the production can be improved by artificial insemination and forage development.
