Dryland ecosystems have always been prone to relatively high vegetation and general environmental degradation; translating to changes in soil physical and chemical properties and massive carbon losses. Despite their vast surface area, Carbon sequestration therein still remains low. However, this low carbon means they are less saturated and therefore a tremendous potential therein to sequester more Carbon. Conservation agriculture with trees (CAWT) presents an opportunity to reduce the degradation and enhance the carbon stocks. This study was set to compare the biomass productivity and carbon sequestration potential of agroforestry between conventional and conservation agriculture practice. The study was carried out as part of ongoing experimentation established in short rain (SR) season of 2012 by the World Agroforestry Centre in a trial site at the Agricultural Training Centre (ATC) in Machakos county, Kenya. The trials adopted a split plot arranged in a randomized complete block design with two farming systems (conventional and conservation agriculture) as the main blocks, 7 treatments and three replicates, summing to a total of 42 plots. In the fields, two shrub species (Calliandra calothyrsus Meissn. and Gliricidia sepium Jacq.) were planted in three different spacing (1.5x1 m, 3x1 m, 4.5x1 m) for maize-legume intercrops. Trees were harvested by coppicing, weighed and leaf/twig samples taken for determination of biomass, which was then converted to Carbon using a conversion factor 0.5.

Many problems arise in the cultivation of crops; one of these problems is insect pests that can threaten crop production. Integrated pest management is an alternative technique for managing the balance of the agricultural environment. Habitat manipulation by increasing plant diversity with refugia is considered an alternative way to maintain natural enemy in an agro ecosystem. The use of soybean as a refugium in a crop field is still limited. Research was conducted to investigate the diversity of predatory arthropods in soybean as a refugium in a chilli pepper crop field at the Agro-technology Training Centre (ATC) at the University of Sriwijaya. In this study, four varieties of soybean (Dena 1, Detam 3 PRIDA, Deja 1, and Devon 1) were used as refugia. Three observation methods were carried out using nets, pitfall traps and visual observation for 7 weeks. The results show that arthropod diversity in soybean plants comprised 6 orders with 10 families and 19 species. Odontoponera denticulata (Hymenoptera) was the most predominant arthropod predator, observed in 73% of all soybean varieties. The number of canopy-dwelling arthropod predators was similar in the four soybean varieties.

The System of Rice Intensification (SRI) operates under aerobic conditions so that helpful microbes are active and abundant. Effective N-fixing rhizobacteria and indigenous phosphate solubilizers Azotobacter and Pseudomonas grow well in the organic compost Bioorganic because it resembles their natural habitat. The purpose of this research is to find out the right dose of Bioorganic fertilizer and the most N and P doses needed to optimize the SRI method of rice crop production. This research uses a factorial randomized block design. The first factor is Bioorganic fertilizer dosage (1, 3, and 6) t ha-1. The second factor is the dose of N and P fertilizers to use (0, 25, 50, and 75)% of the recommended dosage. The results of this study inform you about Bioorganic fertilizers containing Azotobacter and Pseudomonas fluorescens indigenous. Azotobacter bacteria produce the availability of nutrients N, which functions as Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR), these bacteria quickly colonize the root system, regulate hormonal balance, nutrition, and encourage resistance to pathogens. Pseudomonas fluorescens bacteria acts as a provider of phosphorus and nutrients in the generative phase. Both of these microbes have a role in SRI method of rice plant metabolism to increase vegetative and generative growth of rice plants with SRI method with production reaching production of 8.80 t ha-1 in B2 (3 t ha-1) and N2P2 (50%) with the production of 9.21 t ha-1, so the use of inorganic fertilizers is more efficient. Rice soil nutrient status increased pH from slightly acidic to neutral, C-organic increased from 1.27% (low) to 9.30-10.68% (high), N total from 0.13% (low) to 0.45-0.58% (high), P- available from 13.0 ppm reaching 18.0-20.0 ppm (moderate), the Bioorganic application has not been able to increase the C: N, CEC value and base saturation. Nutrient uptake of N and P on the leaves of rice plants is better at dose B2. Bioorganic applications increase the nutrient content of paddy soils planted with the SRI method compared to initial soil nutrient analysis.

Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp (reddish pulp) of the fruit of the oil palm, primarily the African oil palm Elaeis guineensis. Oil palm is one of agriculture comodity that can increase farmers income, provide raw material on manufacture industry which can create added value. The expansion of oil palm farming in Indonesia has shifted the use of mineral land to suboptimal land which is currently available in many place in Indonesia. Generally the aim of this research is to anylize the competitiveness sensitivity of oil palm farming. Specifically this research wants to anylize the sensitivity on input-output changing, and to anylize the impact of government policy on input-output when facing fluctuation price. In order to reach the goal of this research we used Policy Anlayisis Matrix (PAM). The result of this research shows that partially the declining of price, declining of output volume and increasing input price PCR value and DRCR < 1, which means that the oil palm farming on suboptimal land has competitivenes, and the absence of government policy on determaining input price nor output price on oil palm farming in at suboptimal land. While simultanously shows that the fluctuation of input and output price causes value of PCR dan DRCR > 1 with PCR value 1,12 and DRCR value 1,04, means that oil palm farming on suboptimal land at Musi Rawas Regency not feasible and has no competitiveness. It means that government policy needed to protect input price in oil palm farming on suboptimal land. Therefore government support and guidence in oil palm farming technology on suboptimal land also needed to increase the production of oil palm farming on suboptimal land.

Dalam pengembangan lahan gambut untuk tanaman padi sawah terdapat beberapa faktor pembatas,diantaranya adalah kandungan asam fenolat yang tinggi sehingga dapat meracuni tanaman dan lemahnya ikatan kation K pada tanah gambut. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui distribusi K pada tanaman dan K tercuci akibat pencucian dan pemakaian zeolit serta kalium. Percobaan dilakukan dengan Rancangan Faktorial yaitu perlakuan zeolit (0, 5, 10 dan 15 g/kg), K (0, 125, 250 dan 375 mg K/kg) dan pencucian dengan tiga kali pengulangan. Semua perlakuan ditambahkan Fe3+ sebanyak 2,5% serapan maksimum Fe3+ dan diinkubasi sebulan sebelum ditanam. Tanah yang digunakan pada penelitian ini diambil dari tanah gambut pantai (Lagan) dan peralihan (Dendang) Jambi. Percobaan menggunakan pot yang berdiameter 25 cm dan tinggi 40 cm. Pada kedalaman 40 cm dilubangi dengan diameter 1 cm dan ditutup kembali (pencucian).Tiap pot ditanami 3 bibit padi IR-64 berumur 21 hari, ditambahkan 86Rb dan pemupukan dasar. Pencucian dilakukan dengan 1.000 ml air bebas ion setiap minggu sampai umur tanaman 4 minggu (panen), untuk menganalisa distribusi K pada tanaman. Pengaruh pencucian, pemberian zeolit dan kalium berpengaruh nyata terhadap 86Rb pada bagian tanaman dan 86Rb tercuci. Pemberian zeolit 15 g/kg dan K 375 mg K/kg dengan pencucian pada gambut pantai dan peralihan diperoleh 86Rb pada bagian atas tanaman : 4,792% ; 1,450% dan akar 0,490% ; 0,316%. Sedangkan tanpa pencucian pada gambut pantai dan peralihan, 86Rb pada bagian atas tanaman yaitu 1,599% ; 1,059 dan akar 0,253% ; 0,204%. Kehilangan K pada tanah gambut akan berkurang akibat pencucian dengan peningkatan takaran zeolit. Pada gambut pantai dengan pemberian zeolit 5-15 g/kg mampu mengurangi kehilangan K dari pupuk sebanyak 0,1-3,0%, sedangkan untuk gambut peralihan 0,04-2,2%.

Disamping itu media tanam dan pupuk yang diberikan pada tahap aklimatisasi perlu diperhatikan supaya bibit tanaman anggrek bisa tumbuh dan berkembang secara optimal. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mendapatkan media tanam dan mendapatkan pupuk organik cair yang baik pada tahap aklimatisasi terhadap pertumbuhan planlet Anggrek Bulan (Phalaenopsis amabilisi) hasil kultur jaringan. Penelitian ini menggunakan Rancangan Acak Lengkap (RAL) dua faktor dengan 3 ulangan. Faktor pertama adalah media akar pakis, sekam padi dan kompos kopi. Faktor kedua adalah kontrol, pupuk cair Supra dan Bioto Grow. Variabel yang diamati adalah persentase hidup planlet, pertambahan tinggi tanaman, saat tumbuh daun baru, pertambahan panjang daun, pertambahan jumlah daun, pertambahan diameter batang. Data hasil pengamatan dianalisis dengan menggunakan analisis varian dan melalui uji lanjut BNT. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa kedua jenis pupuk yang digunakan tidak berpengaruh nyata terhadap pertambahan tinggi planlet, saat tumbuh daun baru, panjang daun, jumlah daun, namun berpengaruh nyata terhadap diameter batang. Ketiga jenis media tanam memberikan pengaruh yang nyata terhadap tinggi tanaman, saat tumbuh daun baru, panjang daun, jumlah daun, dan diameter batang. Sedangkan interaksi pada kedua perlakuan tersebut tidak menujukkan pengaruh yang nyata terhadap semua variabel yang diamati. Penggunaan media yang bagus terlihat pada media kompos kopi dan akar pakis melalui pemberian pupuk cair Bioto Grow.

Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk melakukan analisa terhadap sistem pemindai 3D untuk komponen mesin peralatan pertanian menggunakan teknologi kinect. Pemanfaat teknologi kinect ini diharapkan mampu memindai dan mengambil gambar komponen-komponen mesin pertanian secara 3D. Analisa yang digunakan adalah untuk mengetahui tingkat akurasi kinect dalam memindai komponen mesin pertanian. Pemindai 3D ini menggunakan teknologi kinect sebagai sesor utama. Kinect terdiri dari sensor infra red, sensor depth image coms dan sensor color image CMOS. Semua sensor kinect memindai obyek secara 3D dan kemudian diproses oleh processor kinect. Hasil proses tersebut dilanjutkan ke perangkat lunak pada pemroses data sehingga mengasilkan file hasil pemindaian dalam bentuk 3D. Hasil pengujian pada komponen dengan ukuran yang berbeda-beda menunjukan bahwa komponen dengan ukuran dibawah diameter 7,5 dan tinggi 10 cm tidak mampu dipindai. Komponen dengan ukuran diatas diameter 10 cm dan tinggi 15 cm dapat dipindai dengan akurasi yang cukup baik.

Penelitian ini menggunakan desain penelitian Rancangan Acak Kelompok Faktorial dengan uji BNT pada tingkat signifikan 5%. Perlakuan eksperimental menggunakan dua faktor, yaitu bobot umbi kentang (B) dan metode menempatkan benih di lubang tanam (K). Faktor perlakuan pertama adalah bobot umbi bibit (B) empat (tingkat yang terdiri dari B1 = 25-30 gram, B2 = 35-40 gram, B3 = 45-50 gram dan B4 = 55-60 gram. Faktor perlakuan kedua adalah metode penempatan bibit di lubang tanam (K) empat level terdiri dari K1 = posisi umbi membentuk sudut 00, K2 = posisi umbi membentuk sudut 300, K3 = posisi umbi membentuk sudut 600 dan K4 = posisi umbi membentuk sudut 900. Berdasarkan uji lanjut tes BNT dengan taraf 5%, perlakuan tunggal bobot umbi 45-50 gram dan perlakuan tunggal letak umbi 30o berbedanyata dengan perlakuan lainnya terhadap jumlah umbi. kombinasi dari dua perlakuan bobot umbi dari 55-60 gram ditempatkan pada metode penempatan letak umbi 900 berbeda nyata dengan perlakuan lainnya terhadap jumlah batang. Perlakuan bobot umbi 60o berbeda nyata dengan perlakuan lainnya terhadap bobot basah. Kombinasi bobot umbi 55-60 gram pada letak umbi 90o terdapat interaksi pada variabel bobot basah.. Kesimpulan dari penelitian adalah perlakuan tunggal bobot umbi 45-50 gram dengan perlakuan tunggal letak umbi 300 berpengaruh terhadap jumlah umbi. Kombinasi bobot umbi 55-60 gram ditempatkan pada letak umbi 60o menghasilkan jumlah umbi optimum, tetapi kombinasi dua perlakuan 55-60 gram yang ditempatkan letak umbi 900 terdapat interaksi pada variabel bobot basah.

Pemanjatan kelapa umumnya dilakukan secara tradisional yaitu dengan memanjat pohon kelapa secara langsung tanpa menggunakan alat. Pemanjatan secara langsung mempunyai resiko kecelakaan yang besar, karena tidak adanya pengaman saat memanjat. Untuk mengatasi masalah tersebut dirancang sebuah alat panjat kelapa portable yang aman, nyaman dan mudah dioperasikan karena dilengkapai dengan safety belt. Alat ini bekerja melalui efek jeratan pada pohon kelapa Berdasarkan pengujian yang dilakukan, didapatkan hasil kecepatan pemanjatan dengan alat panjat kelapa portable ini adalah 0.27 meter/detik, kecepatan pemetikan 3 detik/buah dan biaya pokok alat Rp. 8,02 /meter. Dengan alat ini pemanjat lebih bebas menggunakan kedua tangan dalam membersihkan tajuk kelapa dan pemetikannya karena tubuh kita ditopang/ditahan oleh safety belt. Secara umum alat ini efektif digunakan untuk melakukan pemanjatan kelapa.
