Utilization Of Biotechnology Of Beef Waste As An Input For Sustainable Agriculture Development In The Sweet Corn Commodity
Indonesia has the potential to develop agriculture on suboptimal land to increase the productivity of food crops, given that the land area owned by farmers tends to be less than one hectare and has cultivation technology readiness through the application of biotechnology for fermentation of cow dung. in composting as input for farming. The purpose of this study is to do research to see compost technology through the use of agricultural biotechnology in an effort to reduce agricultural input costs and to see the use of compost on sweet corn on sub-optimal land. This research was conducted at the Suka Mandiri Farmers Group, Megati Village, Selemadeg Timur District, Tabanan Regency, Bali Province from January to December 2019. The method used is business analysis to determine the feasibility of a business and evaluate existing business activities. By knowing the factors of production, it can be seen the amount of costs, the amount of benefits, and the amount of income obtained from each rupiah issued (R / C Ratio). The results showed that composting through the use of agricultural biotechnology in an effort to obtain agricultural input costs, namely by fermentation of cow dung with the help of Rumino Bacillus. The use of compost in corn farming in suboptimal land can reduce the production cost of sweet corn farming. Sustainable agricultural development with sweet corn commodity so that it can be used for food production with an income of Rp. 3.038.000, - per harvest with R / C 2.25.
