[Full Text]



Arifin, Sofyan, Nirawati, Muhammad Arsyad Biba



Profitability, Benefit, Land Tenure



The main income sources of the community, especially the rural community, still depend on the agricultural sector. This mean that the life of most households depends on the agricultural sector. Farming activities have a goal to increase productivity for higher profits. Production and productivity can not be separated from the factors of production owned by farmers to increase production and income obtained from farming. The purposes of this study are to analyze the production, profitability and the factors that influence the profit of rice farming in rainfed lowland based on land tenure. This study uses primary and secondary data. The population of this study are farmers who carry out rice farming in rainfed lowland. In the determination of respondents done by simple random sampling method. Data processing is done by using tabulation and percentage. Technical analysis used is quantitative descriptive and multiple regression analysis. The results showed that: (1) production and profitability of rice farming in rainfed lowland based on land tenure is economically feasible and feasible to be cultivated or continued. (2) Factors that have significant effecting the benefits of rice farming in rainfed lowland based on land tenure are land area, labor wage, urea fertilizer price, SP18 fertilizer price, farming experience, and land tenure.
