The Ciliman Watershed is one of the watersheds in Kabupeten Lebak and Kabupaten Pandeglang with a total area ± 500 km2. According to report of Badan Nasional Penanggulangan Bencana (BNPB) Serang City, flooding often occurs in the Ciliman watershed because of the overflow of the Ciliman tributaries, this occurs because of the conversion of land use in the upstream area of Ciliman watershed so that during the rainy season, rainwater does not seep into the ground but directly into runoff. The aims of the research is to simulate several soil and water conservation as an effort to better manage the Ciliman watershed and determine the best land use scenario in accordance with the biophysical Ciliman watershed. This study applied SWAT model as a tool to simulate several soil and water conservation technical at Ciliman watershed. The scenarios simulated were: 0) existing condition, 1) application of forest area functions, 2) application of soil and water conservation techniques using RTK RHL, 3) application of regional spatial planning (RTRW). The results showed that scenario 2 (RTK RHL) was the best scenario by overall. Scenario 2 can reduce the Qmax/Q min ratio by 31.63% compared to other scenarios. And also can reduce coefficient of runoff by 24% and direct runoff by 23.55% and increase baseflow by 16.20% and water yield by 1.77%.

Soil crust is a soil suface layer which is more compact, harder, and brittle when it is drier than underlaying material. The soil physical characteristics such as aggregate stability, bulk density and soil permeability rate are closely related to this soil crust process. An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of chicken manure doses and certain chicken manure with PAM (Polyacrile Amide) to soil aggregate, bulk density and soil permeability rate. The result of this research, were: 1) An incremental addition of chicken manure into soil increased soil aggregation percentage, soil stability and soil permeability rate, and 2) The combined incremental additions of chicken manure with PAM were found to be more effective than only an incremental additions of chicken manure, increasing the aggregation percentage, soil aggregate stability, from the soil one day drainage process, but another case in decreasing the bulk density permeability rate from the soil with the same process.

There are many new rice varieties have been produced, introduced and breed at IRRI and the other National Agriculture Research Institutes that are tolerance to submergence condition to anticipate global warming and flash flooding around theworld. Among others are IR64-Sub 1, Suwarna-Sub 1, Inpara-1, Inpara-2, inpara-3 etc. However, those new varieties have not been tested widely yet, and the method of rice cultivation under submergence condition have not been adjusted, including the nutrient management.A greenhouse experiment was conducted at Muara Research Station, Bogor during 2008 dry season. The objectives of this experiment are (1) to study the effects of time of submergence and N application on plant growth and yield of R64 and IR64-Sub 1 rice varieties; (2) to find the best nutrient management for submergence rice varieties. The experiment was conducted during 2008 dry season at greenhouse, Muara Research station, Bogor. The design of the experiment was a Completely Randomized Factorial Design with three eplications. Factor 1 is rice variety (IR64 and IR64-Sub 1); Factor 2 is time of submergence (without submergence or control, submergence at vegetative phase (15 to 25 d.a.t), and at generative phase (35 to 45 d.a.t)). Factor 3 is N application, namely (F1) 300 kg Urea/ha 3x applications at 7 d.a.t- 30 d.a.t – 55 d.a.t; (F2) Mudball urea –300 kg Urea/ha applied once at 7 d.a.t. (F3) compost; and (F4) compost and urea; (F5) Urea and silikat.urea-N application at four time 0 d.a.t – 7 d.a.t – 30 d.a.t – 55 d.a.t (factor C). The results of experiments showed that submergence changes rice plant growth pattern (mainly tiller number and plant height), increased dry grain weight of IR64, namely 35.9 g at early vegetatif phase and 29.9 g at late vegetatif phase, while for IR64-Sub 1 32.6 g and 30.3 g at the same respective phase. Mudball urea and silicate application improved plant resistant to submergence and increase rice yield.

Acid upland smectitic soil is identified by high amount of exchangeable Al due to the weathering of aluminum (Al) octahedral layer by H+ saturation and by very low phosphorus (P) status. Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and calcium silicate (CaSiO3) were commonly used to decrease exchangeable Al and increase soil pH. Laboratory experiments were conducted with clayey smectitic Typic Paleudults from Gajrug region, West Java. The CaCO3 and CaSiO3 were added at rates to replace 0, 1.5 or 3 times of exchangeable Al. After one month of incubation, P sorption kinetic experiments were conducted. The changes in some chemical properties after one month incubation showed that both CaCO3 and CaSiO3 increased the soil pH, exchangeable Ca, and base saturation but did not increase the cation exchange capacity. The results of the experiment showed that both CaCO3 and CaSiO3 decreased the rate constant value of first order kinetic equation (k) and the P sorbed maximum (a) at given amount of added P compared to Control.The CaCO3 was better than CaSiO3 in decreasing k values and on the contrary for a values. The decrease in P maximum sorption and the rate constant of the soil amended with CaSiO3 and CaCO3 due to occupation of P sorption sites by silicates and hydroxyl ions. The CaCO3with the rate to replace 1.5 x exchangeable Al was recommended to decrease the rate constant of P sorption. However, the CaSiO3 at the rate to replace 3 x exchangeable Al was recommended to decrease the maximum P sorption.

Land conversion is a term that describes phenomenon of changing land-use from one to other uses permanently. Factors closely associated with land conversion were population growth, economic, and infrastructure development. This study aims are: (1) to determine rate and pattern of farmland conversion in Tangerang District, (2) to know growth rate of population density, economic growth, and development of Tangerang District, and (3) to determine factors affecting conversion of agricultural land in Tangerang District. Land conversion in Tangerang District caused areas of agricultural land decreased 2.4% per year. The agricultural lands were converted into built land. Population density grew unevenly in Tangerang District. The highest population density growth rate occurred ( during 1997-2007 ) in Pasar Kemis (19% ) and Kronjo faced the lowest rate (0.2%). The economic growth rate in the Tangerang District can be seen from the 1997-2007 Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP) Tangerang District. In general, service sector has the highest growth rate (3.9%) followed by industrial sector (0.9%) and agriculture sector (0.6%). Meanwhile, mining sector decreased by 4.1% per year. Level of development in Tangerang District analyzed with scalogram shows that in 2003 most of the villages (60.98%) were on 3rd hierarchy, while the rest on 2nd hierarchy (30.18%) and 1st hierarchy (8.84%). In the year 2006, there were an increase in number of villages on 2nd hierarchy and a decrease in number of villages on 3rd hierarchy, while the number of villages on 1st hierarchy were the same.

In Indonesia, the biological agents have been widely used in the agriculture for reducing chemical fertilizers uses, for controlling plant pest and pathogens, and for increasing rate of composting process. The application of biological agents is especially important in the organic agriculture practices. The agents consist of microorganisms both fungi and bacteria, and in some extent are also viruses, that part of them are imported from other countries. Based on their characteristics, any biological agents that are released into the environment can pose potential problems to the environment or the ecology. There is a Ministerial Decree that require an environmental risk assessment (ERA) for getting a permission of an importation of biological agents. Unfortunately, there is not any guidance to conduct ERA of biological agents. This paper reviews ERA and using of the approach to do a risk assessment of biological agents that will be used in agriculture.

Sources of CO2 from the soil include root respiration, decomposition of newly fallen aboveground litter and decomposition of old soil organic matter. Rhizosphere processes play a key role in soil respiration which is the main carbon efflux from peatland ecosystem to atmosphere. Plant rhizodeposits supply low-molecular weight carbon substrates to the soil microbial community, resulting in elevated levels of activity surrounding the root. We studied the effects of rhizosphere in oil palm plantation on the fluxes of CO2. Carbon dioxide emission flux of peatland was collected in Meulaboh, West Aceh using cylindrical chambers and analysis air samples of chamber by gas chromatograph. Five-point transects perpendicular to drainage canal provided variation in depth of water table for the samples. The data confirmed that The CO2 flux from rhizosphere chamber with additional roots was one to four times higher than from bulk soil chamber.
