Abstract:Pineapple, papaya and cempedak are horticultural commodities that are perishable, require large space, and are usually consumed in fresh form. Based on that, technologies are required for processing them, and one alternative is juice technology. To ensure that the juice is still suitable for consumption and unspoiled, information on shelf life is necessary. Method of estimating shelf life used is ASLT (Accelarated Shelf Life Test). This research was conducted at the Laboratory of The Indonesian Center for Postharvest Agricultural Research and Development between September 2012 – January 2013. Results showed that kinetics reaction in the deterioration of vitamin C in pineapple and pineapple-Cempedak juice followed order one reaction. At storage temperature ranging between 30 °C to -5 °C pineapple-cempedak juice showed a shelf life longer than the shelf life of pineapple and pineapple-papaya juices. The estimated shelf life of pineapple-cempedak juice at a temperature of -5 °C was 197.85 days. Shelf life of pineapple-papaya juice at a temperature of -5 °C was 172.39 days. Shelf life of pineapple juice at a temperature of -5 °C was 156.85 days.

Abstract:Implementation of Integrated Crop Management (ICM) on maize farming in dry land is expected to increase the production and efficiency. This study aimed to: 1) analyze technical, allocative, and economic efficiencies of dry land maize farming under ICM and non-ICM implementation program, 2) identify factors that influence the technical inefficiency of maize farming under ICM and non-ICM implementation program. The study was conducted in maize production center in West Java province at Sukabumi and Garut regencies. Stratified random sampling method was used to survey 300 households in 2015. The data were analyzed using the Cobb-Douglas stochastic frontier production function; while allocative and economic efficiencies were analyzed using the input side approach with frontier dual cost function. The results showed that the productivity of ICM maize farming was 18% higher than the non-ICM. The level of technical, allocative and economic efficiencies of ICM maize farming were 88%, 22%, and 20% respectively, while the level of technical, allocative and economic efficiencies of non-ICM maize farming were 78%, 18%, and 14%, respectively. The level of technical, allocative and economic efficiencies increased by 11% to 30% higher in ICM than the non-ICM. Factors causing technical inefficiency were frequency of extension, educational level, and distance of farmland from farmers residence.

Abstract:This study aimed to determine the similarity of the characteristics of each type of organic matter in suppressing the solubility of iron in soil and absorption in plants. This research was conducted in two stages. The first stage was conducted in the greenhouse to study the effect of organic matter to iron solubility in acidic sulphate soil. The research used a factorial design with 1 control and 3 replications. The first factor was type of organic matter used, B1 = rice straw; B2 = weeds; B3 = Combination of 50% rice straw and 50% weeds. The second factor was the incubation period of organic matter I1 = 2 weeks, I2 = 4 weeks, I3 = 8 weeks, and I4 = 12 weeks. The second stage was analyzing the profiles of the type of organic matter in order to evaluate the similarity of the characteristics of each type of organic matter. Based on the profile alignment, it was found that the three types of organic matter were not aligned. The types of organic matter had different roles in suppressing the solubility of iron in soil and its absorption in plants. There is a need to do a comparative analysis with Tukey method to the three types of organic matter.

Abstract:One of the problems encountered in the development of sugarcane (Sacharrum officinarum L.) includes the availability of sugarcane seed both in quality and quantity. Evaluation of bud sett planting method in seed production was required in order to achieve the expected results. The study was conducted at the experiment station Muktiharjo, Central Java in 2012 using PSJT 941 varieties. Treatments applied were the different number of buds on bud sett which were at 3 levels, 1 bud, 2 buds or 3 buds. Research was arranged in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with 5 replications. Observations were conducted on germination, tillering, plant height, number of stems, number of suckers and number of buds. The data obtained were analyzed with ANOVA and further tested using the Duncan test. Production assessment modeling approach was performed by a regression analysis. Calculation of stem number on 2 buds showed the highest with 9.6 stems/m, 9.2 buds/stem and with the sucker numbers lowest at 0.38 suckers/m. The highest production buds was obtained at planting 2 buds with 847,848.06 buds/ha which can be used as 8.83 ha for the milled sugarcane plantation. Assessment of bud production per hectare could use equation Y = 159655,48.e0,171.X with the independent variable of stem numbers per meter with a correlation coefficient of 0,9007 and a standard error of 1,0699.

Abstract:Smallholder dairy farmers in Indonesia are very limited by the availability of quantity and quality of the feedstuff, especially in dry season. Sources of protein from legumes and non-conventional materials can be found around the area and used as feed ingredients for dairy cows. However, the major problem is in feed formulation for nutritionally balanced ration and with the cheapest cost. This paper outlines a step-by-step procedure in feed formulation based on Excel program for dairy farmers. The steps were performed to provide assurance that the resulting balanced ration was according to the targeted performance and at least cost. Also, users could control the process of formulating the ration. Examples were given by utilizing legumes and the results indicated that the reduction in feed cost was very real, as much as 10-20% when compared to the concentrated feed commonly used by farmers at a price of Rp1420/kg. The formulation method prepared by the program SOLVER can be recommended for use by dairy cattle ranchers individually or with assistance from Extension workers. Farmers are expected to be able to formulate their feed easily in order to get the least cost formula using feedstuff available in abundance, to minimize production cost, and to optimize feed management at small scale farming level.

Abstract:Maize is the second basic food need after rice that is potential and has high economic value in increasing income of farmers and food diversification program. White maize, in particular, is an alternative staple food in Grobogan Regency. The superior variety is a component of technology that plays a prominent role to increase productivity, disease resistant, and environmentally suitable (specific location). The aim of the study was to determine the influential factors in the adoption of superior variety of white maize in order to achieve transfer of technology. The study was carried out in three villages of Grobogan Regency, Central Java: namely Sumber Jatipohon, Godan, and Karangasem. The locations were determined with purposive sampling and the number of respondents interviewed was 120 farmers (40 farmers in each village) between September-December 2015. Analyses of the data were descriptively and quantitatively using percentages, charts and tables with logistic regression. The results of this study showed that the interest of farmers to adopt new superior variety of white maize was quite good around 66.7 percent. Farmers’ interest toward superior variety may be considered high. While factors significantly influencing the adoption included income, knowledge or information on technology, agriculture extension support, pest, and availability of seeds. On the other hand, factors which were not significantly affecting the adoption included age, formal education, farmers’ experience, and land size.

Abstract:Watershed (DAS) is a complex ecosystem, where land quality is largely determined by land use activities. This illustrates the importance of analytical procedure, especially where the context in which the spatial pattern of land use in the future can be designed based on the risk of degradation in large areas. Data and information are necessary to be used as reference in designing a planning scheme related to land use. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a system that has the ability to analyze problems and their spatial and non-spatial combinations (queries) in order to provide solutions to spatial problems. Sustainable farming is an integral part of sustainable development, a farming system which preserves water resources, land resources, and plant resources in acceptable and suitable ways economically, socially, and environmentally. The research aimed to identify and classify critical land by spatial analysis. Based on identification of land, there were 12 individual units in the study area. Based on the spatial analysis, critical land classification was divided into not critical area of 1,818 ha (28.7.%), Potentially Critical 2,596 ha (41.06%), Moderately critical 1,631 ha (25.08%), Critical 226 ha (3.57 %). Most of the land in sub-basin Langge was a hilly area of 1180.6 ha (63.8%) with a slope of 12-25%; 25-40% and above 40%. Alternative farm management in this area was a conservation farm by mechanical conservation techniques (terraces) or vegetative with cultivation techniques hallway, living fences, grass strips and agroforestry.
