Abstract

Single type of land use on agricultural practice is not a wise way to meet all the requirements for sustainability or agriculture. On the other hand, integrating crop, animal and fish productions may allow an enhancement of agro-ecosystem productivity and stability through efficient nutrient management, integrated management of soil and water resources, and a wider variety of crop, livestock and fisheries products (National Academic Sciences, 1993b). The study is conducted at Banjararum village, Kaibawang district, Kulon Progo regency, Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta (DIY) province, Java Island, Indonesia. The objectives of this study were: (1) to develop integrated farming technology (IFT), and (2) to increase agricultural community empowerment for sustainable agriculture. Totally there were three years required for conducting the study, i.e. 2010-2012. It was divided in to three periods of programs for every year. The present study, as the first period of the study, was focused to assess the agricultural resources andintroduce the Integrated Farming technology to the farmer communities. While the second period would be done on the implementation of model IFT, and the last third period would be focused on evaluation development of the model capacity building of farmer group. Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) method was used in this study and implementation technique was by Focus Group Discussion (FGD). There were three farmer communities in Banjararum village were chosen in this study as a development center of integrated farming, i.e., Mejing, Klepu and Sentul hamlets. The results of the first period of the study showed that the three farmer communities at Banjararum was very appreciate on the development program of IFT, especially for Mejing farmer community. They also understand how to develop the IFT according to the potential of their land resources.
