Abstract

Farmers’ participation in agricultural extension can improve the relevancy between extension services and the farmer needs. There are many factors that may affect farmers’ participation in agricultural extension. The aim of this study was to understand influence of characteristic and perception of farmers onto extension towards level of farmer participation in agricultural extension. Method applied was non experimental design survey with structural equation model analysis and analysed using Lisrel 8,3 application. The number samples were which were obtained from two areas, 103 that divided by two area, central area 57 samples and non central area 46 samples. Exogenous variable was farmers’ characteristics and endogenous variable were farmers’ perception and level of farmers’ participation in agricultural extension. The analysis of structural model indicated that farmers’ characteristics negatively correlated with farmers’ perception to agricultural extension in which the higher levels of age, cosmopolite, and formal education. Similarly, farmers’characteristics negatively affected either directly or indrectly farmer participation, meaning the higher levels of age, formal education, and cosmopolite the lower participation level on the extension. Effects of perception on participation was significantly negative, indicating that the higher perception the higher participation in the extension.  Quality of extension services e.g. extension materials, method used, and capacity of extension services must be improved. Current extension services can only meet the needs of young farmers. The more complex the farmers’ needs the more unlikely the extension to meet famers’ needs.   Key words:  Farmers’ participation, Dairy farmer, Extension, Farmer perception

Land use conflict among agriculture and animal husbandry caused beef cattle must be keptintensively. The objective of this research was to identify adoption level of beef cattle intensive rearingand some factors that affecting farmers adoption. Research design was survey with 90 respondents froma total of 578 farmers. Data were obtained through interview and observations using questionnare withclose question. The data were analyzed with multiple regression models. The level of intensive rearingadoption (dependent variable) was measured based on housing system, feeding, reproduction, healthmanagement and feces utilization. While, independent variables were based on the intensity ofextension, relative adventage, subjective norm, control of behavior, attitude, age, land area and scale ofbusiness. Level of housing system, feeding, reproduction and health management were in the medium level (average >50% of farmers), while feces utilization was in the lowest level. Factors that positivelyaffected farmer adoption in Wajo regency were the ability of the farmers to control their behavior(p<0.01), farmer position in social community or subjective norm and relative adventage weresignificant with p<0.05. Another case with contact to the extension, age, attitude, land area and scale ofbusiness were no significant affected farmers adoption. To enforce adoption of intensive rearingtechnology, extension program should be developed to influence farmers psychology such profit level ofintensive rearing and convenience on cattle handling.

The data were analysed using t student test with independent group.  The result showed that the level of dairy farmer participation in extension planning was moderate in the central area which was lower than that in the non central area. Moreover, dairy farmer participation in the implementation and utilization of extension programs were similar for both groups.  It can be concluded that the level of dairy farmer participation in the extension programs in Enrekang Regency was high.

Abstract

The advantage of integration of corn and cattle has been promoted through demonstration plot and other extension ways. However, the rate of its adoption is still low and not widely accepted. The purpose of this study was to explore the factors that thwort of farmers from adopting the corn and cattle integration system. Survey method was used in this research and was conducted at Maros (glatinous corn production centre), Gowa district (Sweet corn production centre) and Takalar district (yellow and sweet corn production centre). Data collection were carried out using delphie method with three stages. First stage was to explore the factors that thwort of farmer from adopting the technology using FGD.  FGDs were conducted with key informants such as farmers who plant corn and cattle and extension agents.  Second and third stages were to reduce the factors into five most important factors.  The result showed that the inhibiting factor in adopting utilization of corn stalk for animal feeding in Maros regency was lack of feed storehouse, in Takalar Regency was the lack of knowledge in preserving corn stalk and in Gowa was the availability of many other feed resources.  The barrier to adoption of the use of manure as organic fertilizer was the lack of knowledge in composting (in Gowa and Takalar) and the cost of manure processing (in Maros).

Buffaloes is an animal livestock that potentially developed in Sumbang village, district of Curio Enrekang because Enrekang has enough land to be used as an area for grazing and as feed resources as well as the area immediately adjacent to the area of Toraja, a district in which buffaloes are using as a means of ritual in tradition ceremonies. However, the buffaloes livestock business scale is still small-scale farm, i.e. 2-3 buffaloes per household. Buffalo’s livestock business development is influenced by characteristics of the breeder.

The type of this research was an explanatory quantitative, a kind of research that explaining the correlation, examining the correlation between the breeder characteristics and the business scale. Data were collected using questionnaire and were analyzed using statistical software of SPSS 15 for windows. Breeder characteristic that was significantly correlate with buffaloes livestock business scale was breeder experience (P< 0.05) while age, education, and number of family dependent was not significantly correlated.

Abstract

The utilization of crop residue as a feed is very important because the arable land area is relatively limited. The study was aimed to examine the influence of adoption of crop-residue product as a feed. The research was conducted in Maros District by using survey methods from March to August 2015. The number of respondents was 96 farmers scattered throughout the Districts of Bantimurung and Camba as centers of rice, corn plant, and cattle productions. Questionnaires were used to collect data conducted by a trained enumerator. Survey was arranged using a logistic regression model to identify socio economic factors influencing the adoption of crop residue as a feed. Work perception (X2), contact with extension workers (X4), rice cultivated areas (X5), the number of livestock (X6), subjective norm (X7), and difficulty (X8) were socio-economic variables influencing the adoption of crop residue as a feed. However, the variables age (X1), farmer experiences (X3), and the number of family members (X9) had no effect on the adoption of this technology. In conclusion, extension workers play an important role in increasing the adoption of technology by using rice and corn straws as a feed. Likewise, not only the number of livestocks, but also the good perception of the farmers increased along with the increase of feed availability, such as utilization of rice and corn straws.
