The Agricultural Potential Of Indonesia

The Agricultural Potential Of Indonesia
Indonesia said the country's Jambrut at the equator, “gemah Ripah Lohjinawi” said the Javanese. I think that is the case, if we look at the 2010 – 2014 renstra agricultural potential, particularly in the areas of Indonesia, an agricultural farming potential of What Indonesia?
Proverbial stick of bamboo so plants, people say our soil ground of heaven,
This review I for some upload phase, given the potential for such a large number of agricultural Indonesia.

1. The agricultural potential of Indonesia's first : biodiversity and Agroekosistem.

Indonesia has the potential of natural resources, including the germplasm, which overflows (mega biodiversity). Bio-diversity of terrestrial Indonesia is the largest number two in the world after Brazil, whereas when including marine biodiversity, Indonesia is the largest number one in the world. This can be seen with the various types of agricultural commodities in food crops, horticulture, orchards and farms which have long sought as a source of food and income for the community. A supported plurality of biodiversity of today with the distribution of geographical conditions of the low and high; abundance of sunshine and rainfall intesitas almost evenly throughout the year in most regions; as well as a plurality of types of soils allows today's preserved various types of plants and animals native to the tropics, as well as the commodity introduction of tropical sub areas evenly throughout the year in Indonesia.
Variety and magnitude of the number of germplasm of plants and animals, both native to the tropics and the introduction of the commodities that have to adapt to the tropical climate, on the other side is the source of genetic material that can be engineered to produce superior crop varieties and klone and the cattle.
The agricultural potential of Indonesia, much utilized by other countries such as Netherlands, France, America etc in getting germplasm among other seed-seed farm, in the implementation of the checklist has been developed to form agricultural seeds industry. Most of the productnya was brought to the land of the Westerner. This is based on information from the workforce (native Indonesians)

2. The agricultural potential of Indonesia in the second agricultural : lands Indonesia has the potential availability of land big enough and not yet utilized optimally. Data from academic studies carried out by the Directorate General of Land and Water Management, Ministry of agriculture in 2006 showed that the total land area of Indonesia's 202 million ha, is divided into 123 million ha (64.6 percent) is the cultivation and the remaining 67 million ha (35.4 percent) is a protected area. Of the total cultivated area, potentially to an agricultural area 101 million ha, including wetlands covering an area of 25.6 million ha, dry land crop season 25.3 million ha and dry land crops yearly 50.9 million ha. Until recently, the area of agriculture, potentially to an already cultivated into agricultural area by 47 million ha, so that the remaining 54 million ha of potentially agricultural area for the expansion.

3. The agricultural potential of Indonesia a third much more, if there's time to look at a very famous natural beauty of this.
Number of extents and the distribution of forests, rivers, swamps and lakes as well as rainfall is quite high and evenly throughout the year was a natural potential to meet the needs of water for agriculture
If managed properly. Reservoirs, dams, water and soil as well as embung surface water as well as other very potential for supporting the development of agricultural enterprises.

Agricultural potential is very comforting to Indonesia, at the break we need entertainment amongst the bustle of the Office. Moreover, for the tourists very need fresh green scenery of the nan as the eye can see, the green of the tropical plants there is a very impressive second to none in the world.

Java-Indonesia have Belt

(A complete overview About the construction of the overpass South of the island of Java)
The island of Java would be belted, half a part of the belt that is now named cross street Shuttle. Half of the Southern Cross Street is known as cross Street South of the island of Java. Cross Street South of the island of Java-Indonesia is now in the stages of development requiring funding more than trylyun dollars.

The island of Java which is included in The Group has grown in Indonesia, is the region with the development of an economy that is very rapidly and the potential, where the island of Java has the potential of natural resources and human resources. But in reality, not all areas in Java, shows the development of the same. Physically the area north of the island of Java is more developed than the southern region. Condition of the road infrastructure in the region North of Java such as Pantura has been able to lift the wheel of the economy, social activities, and the mobility of citizens, whereas due to the limitations of the road infrastructure in the region South of Java, the development of the region and the low level of well-being of the community still found even many isolated areas. Java-Indonesia have Belt course this is just a term, because Java is like having a belt .
This is proven by the existence of cities and towns in the northern region is more developed, such as Jakarta, Surabaya and Cirebon, etc. In addition the percentage of the value of GDP per capita area of Northern Java is much higher compared to the South. Average of all sectors of the economy in the region of southern Java has a very small contribution, with a percentage between 0-13%.
Java-Indonesia require belt due to the fact of southern Java area, has a huge potential of natural resources, in addition to having a fertile land, mine resources, tourism, also rich in marine resources. A wide range of potential it's possible to do a more optimal development.
The potential of this key can also be seen in real per capita GDP in the percentage of the value of southern Java area. The agricultural sector provides a large enough value in the kontibusi GDP per capita of the province which reached 35-50%. In addition, there is potential in tourism, especially nature tourism, with the contribution of GDP per capita of the province of 18-22%. Wealth and abundant potential for these of course is a strategic factor that is able to push the progress of southern Java area as well as improving the welfare of the community if developed optimally with the support of economic and social infrastructure is adequate.
The following description of the potential that exists in some parts of Java island to the South.

As an attempt to balance the growth of the North coast of Java and the southern coast of the island of Java as well as to face the challenges of density pantura Java one is with the construction of infrastructure. One of the infrastructure to be built is in the form of roads and bridges. Why?
Because roads and bridges is the infrastructure that can become veins in developing an area as well as the creation of regional space structure. Related to this, the efforts made by the Government is the development and improvement of the infrastructure of cross street in the South of the island of Java.
In accordance with the policy of infrastructure development, one of the functions of the construction of road network traffic South of the island of Java is to ensure the smooth movement of goods from the region of production to marketing purposes as well as the movement of people between centres the settlements.
Cross Street South of the island of Java was planned for connecting 5 provinces in Java, Banten, West Java, Central Java, Yogyakarta and East Java, which starts from Labuan Island (Banten) to Banyuwangi, East Java province along with the length of 1,614 km, in masingmasing province is
            1. Banten 128 km,
            2. West Java 419 km,
            3. Central Java 190 km,
            4. Special region of Yogyakarta 157 km, and
            5. East Java all 662 km.

The initial step in the construction of the overpass South of the island of Java have been initiated in 1997-1998 to do pre-feasibility study. Proceed with the feasibility study on the 2000-2001, and 2002 'S ENVIRONMENTAL studies, as well as the design and implementation of construction in 2002-2007.
In fact during the time in the southern region of Java has been constructed the road districts and provinces, where investment by each region is quite large, but still not quite sufficient to unlock the potential isolation that would otherwise be utilized optimally by its inhabitants.
With the founding of the Southern Cross network of roads that classy national road with a primary artery function 24 meters wide and are road network that connects all over. This southern part of the island of Java, at least the issue of accessibility has been resolved. It can be said that the construction of the Cross Street South is not only to facilitate transport from West to East and vice versa, but it is important to improve the well-being of millions of residents in the area south of the Java island .
Determination of the route starting from the results of the Detailed Engineering Design of the Planner and then conducted a review of the location of the shared between the provincial government with each of the District Government and discussed in several sessions. The results of the meeting be integrated with network study conducted by the Central Government, i.e. the study of the Arterial Road Network Java (JARN). Next from the result set routes cross Street South of the island of Java in terms of its funding through the sharing of the Central Government which is more proportionate.
Currently, the currently existing condition Cross Street South of the island of Java have not fully functioning. In addition to being a bad road surface conditions are also due to several bridges connecting unfinished created in some stretches of the road.
Examples of cases in the province of West Java, Cross Street South in West Java province over 5 counties, namely, Cianjur, Sukabumi, Garut, Tasikmalaya and Ciamis.
The existing condition of the road although the majority have been paved, but the roads are still in the stage magnification or damaged in several sections. In Cianjur, still there is a bridge that has not been completed causing the Cross Street South was cut off. In addition, the conditions of the region South of Java, which is relatively hilly quite troublesome for road construction with a flat contours.
Cross lanes South of the island of Java which is later expected to be part of a network of cross street and became the main access in addition to the North, not detached from the constraints that exist, among others, physical condition or the contours South of the island of Java, limited funding, procurement, and also issues annual contracts.
Physical condition or the South Beach area contour yg weight in this case is a cross-roads, mostly through the mountains, cliffs, and canyons that should be handled with strong construction of avalanche and landslide threats. Examples of cases in the province of West Java, which is still a large number of rocky road or not worthy of being passed along the Southern Cross. The link (link junction) which connects the North with the South also has not been adequate, with the condition of the area is mostly hilly mountains. The quality of the course of just a notch road districts and villages, with a width of approximately 5 meters.
While the condition in his left-right way is the Hill and ravine.(see Figure 3). Other constraints related to the physical conditions are examples of cases in the province of Yogyakarta special region. On the link a 7 in Yogyakarta, the construction of the bridge is of importance in the continuity of the road network or corridor. Link 7 requires a link bridge close to the sea with a length of 600 meters (see Figure 4)
The next obstacle is the limited funds, which can be divided into two problems. The first is a matter of design. The limitations of existing funds has resulted in the construction of the Cross Street South is a newer alignment than the study of the technique is a priority aspect of geological, drainage, and others. Though both of these are actually the same importance and cannot be separated from each other.
The second problem is the construction. Construction funds for a total of 1,614 km long path involving many districts with limited quantities must be allocated to all counties, and so smaller funds be accepted each district.
The third constraint is about the procurement of land. One of the constraints of land located in terms of procuring the release of the land. Exemption of land is one of the problems terumit in construction of roads, including the construction of the overpass South of the island of Java. Most of the land that would be fetched as roads are owned by local residents. Therefore, the exemption of land must be through negotiations between the Government of tricky with the community, inter alia by providing redress as appropriate and also understanding that the construction of the Cross Street South will also positively affect the welfare of the population is about. for In addition to the property of individuals or local residents, land tenure to be used as cross Street South is also part of the land is forest.
Not less complex, for the use of teak wood land, it first has to pass through the mechanism of loan-use with compensation of 1: 1 match Candy Forestry Number : P. 14/Menhut-II/2006, as well as meet some requirements include design, ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT studies, the ability of land compensation, and others.
The last obstacle is an annual contract. Annual contracts give negative effects in terms of lost time and inefficient due to the process of procurement, necessitating the maintenance of the road that has not been completed. Here is a picture of some of the obstacles that occur at cross Street South of the island of Java.
Figure 3

A = the road conditions are not yet paved
B = milestone
C = cobbled streets and uphill
D = milestone along a more or less 5 km
E = the bridge connecting the disconnected so it can't pass
F = Path meandering with steep enough slope
G = the road sloped quite steep

B = cross Street South in the province of YOGYAKARTA which still use the existing segment (not yet built the bridge)
C = new roads cross the southern part of Central Java province in Indonesia
D = the road is still in the stage of completion

Of the various things that are already described above relating to the Cross Street South of the island of Java, it requires a long process as well as attempts to cross Street South of the island of Java was completed. One of the most important thing is that this development should be fixed in accordance with the rules of the Chamber so that the later is expected in the future, Cross Street South it will be a road network that really pay attention to the technical rule and sustainable development, so that really can improve the economy of the region South of the island of Java.

It would, the construction of the overpass South of the island of Java is focused on the acceleration to be utilized by the public road, although for the traffic light.
If the belt is the island of Java is finished, we will encounter panoramic views of the beautiful beaches such as Kute-Bali. Just look and compare the pictures of the beach here.

JLS as The Cross Street South of the island of Java at South Malang

I present the South Cross Road (JLS) located in the southern coast of Malang Regency. The information about JLS was obtained when I made a trip with colleagues to see off one of my friend moving to Sumbermanjingwetan Subregion Malang Regency.
Southern Cross Road East Java, Banyuwangi-Pacitan, where Malang Regency is a central axis along the ±140 km of total road length ± 650 KM of JLS. In 2011, the acceleration of the construction and completion is planned in 2013. JLS will connect Malang Regency to the East Banyuwangi/Bali and to the West Pacitan/Jogjakarta; both are the main beach of tourism in Indonesia.
JLS in South Coastal of Malang Regency is one of the three infrastructure to leverage economy of Malang Regency, while the other two are the construction of Pandaan-Malang Highway and Abdul Rahman Saleh Airport.

Optimization of the coastal area south of Malang Regency which is a strategic plan the government of Malang Regency led by Ibnu Rubianto (pbuh) has became people’s expectation in Malang Regency especially South Malang, because the southern coast of Malang Regency has beautiful and virgin beaches. The beaches with wave swash and mostly rugged shaped lot are abundant, among others if being traced from east to west for four districts only, there are Tamban and Sendag Biru beach in Sumbermanjingwetan district, Balekambang beach in Bantur district, Kondang Iwak beach, Mbanthol beach, Ngliyep beach and Jonggring Saloko beach in Donomulyo district. Not to mention the eastern beach which is located in Dampit and Tirtoyudo district.
JLS in south coast of Malang Regency is flashed on the shoreline of south beach which is predicted to invite the growth of tourism in South Malang such as accommodation and other tourism facilities is also expected to foster economy sector such as fisheries, farming and trade in South Malang region. As a proof of the hope, on the North coast of Bajul Mati there’s shrimp pond large enough with land on lease from the local people, said Drs. Mujiar, principal of Dharma Wirawan Malang High School.
Once JLS in Malang Regency is completed you can trace over started from Jogjakarta toward Bali and stop by in South Malang by pampering the eyes to see the coastal scenery as well as blended in TPI (Fish Auction Place) in Sendang Biru beach. You can eliminate the fatigue of the trip by stopping by in South Malang beaches playing around on the white sand beach as well as listening to the crashing and rumbling waves of the southern sea.
According to the Bina Marga strategic plan Malang Regency, JLS is a central program, whereas Malang Regency will completed JLS flipper in the late of 2011.

Javanese Eagle The mighty

Javanese Eagle
Bird Javanese Eagle (Spizaetus bartelsi) is a species of medium-sized Eagle endemic to (the original species) in Java. This animal is considered to be identical to the coat of arms of the Republic of Indonesia, Garuda. And since 1992, it was set up as endangered mascot of Indonesia.

The first time I saw the bird sighting Javanese-eagle is directly in the middle of 2008 around the surface of the water Reservoir Karangkates in South Malang, East Java. Alas, until now I haven't had the opportunity to witness it for the second time.
Physically, the Javanese-eagle has a prominent Crest as much as 2-4 strands with lenght reaches 12 cm in diameter, hence the Javanese Eagle, also known as Jambul Eagle (the tuft-Java language). Adult body size (from tip of beak to tip of tail) of about 60-70 cm, feathers dark brown  on the back and wings. Carbon dark brown on the breast and streaked with thick dark brown on the belly. The tail is brownish black striped.
When flying, the Javanese-eagle is almost similar to the Eagle (Spizaetus cirrhatus) form of light, but tends to appear more brownish, with the stomach look darker and slightly smaller. The voice sounds high, over and over again, klii-iiw or ii-iiiw, varying between one to three syllables. Or sound high pitched and fast kli-kli-kli-kli-kli-kli-kli. A bit much, his voice is similar to the Eagle's voice even though the difference is quite clear in its tone.
The other picture, highlight the eyes and vision are very sharp, stout, wing wings beaked strong, empowered cruising height, and when silence body muscular and authoritative. The "males" that's the impression that perhaps inspire 12 countries showing the figure of a bird on his flag. With 19 other countries, Indonesia is even wearing a body as a symbol of the country with the mythological bird garuda

Javanese-eagle in the air
The population of birds in the wild is estimated at Java lived 600 tails. World Conservation bodies of the United Nations mengategorikannya endangered. Convention on international trade for the Flora and Fauna are endangered include them in Appendix 1, which means organizing extra tight trading. Based on the latest keterancaman of the IUCN criteria, the Javanese-eagle is listed in the category of Endangered or Threatened (Collar et al., 1994, Shannaz et al., 1995). Through a Presidential Decree Number 4 in 1993 about the Wildlife and national flower, the Government of INDONESIA confirmed the Javanese-eagle as endangered in aerospace.
Eagle Habitat is limited to Java in Java, especially in areas with old-growth forests and wooded hills in the area at the turn of the lowlands to the mountains.
Even today, the habitat of this bird is getting narrowed due to the lack of forest ecosystems resulting from the destruction caused by humans, the effects of global warming, and the impact of pesticides. In West Java, the Javanese-eagle is only found in Radiant Mountain, Mount Salak, Mount Gede Pangrango, Papandayan, Patuha and Mount Halimun.
In Central Java in Java Eagle Mount Slamet, Mount Ungaran, Mount Muria, Mount Merapi and mount Lawu, while in East Java in the Merubetiri, the Baluran, Alas Purwo National Park, Bromo-Tengger-Semeru, Wilis and About HYDROPOWER Dam Karangkates.

District of Baruppu in the form of a Regulation based on The number 5 in 2005.

The Total Area

  2. Cultivation Of Sweet Taro

  3. Cultivation of Tamarillo and passion fruit

  4. The cultivation of potatoes and Lentils

  5. Agriculture (Padi)

  6. Forest products (Timber and rattan)

  7. Fattening The Buffalo

  8. Tourism: Liang Stones, Traditional House Tongkonan, Cultural Tours

  9. Cultivation Of Carp

    Sub Barppu ' consists of 4 villages namely:
  1. Subdistricts Of South Baruppu '

  2. Lembang Baruppu ' Benteng Batu

  3. Lembang Baruppu ' North Of

  4. Lembang Baruppu ' Parodo

Baruppu ' like Tana Toraja in South Sulawesi, with a chain of natural as well as the ritual of adatnya which has unique. The best known, of course, a party Rambu a Solo race held near the cemetery of the honoured. It's just Baruppu ' not so well known unlike the Tana Toraja Regency, while Baruppu ' is part of the Toraja.

1. Rambu Solo’ '
Like other indigenous Toraja in Baruppu ' case also is known for its tradition of ritual refinement of death often called Rambu Solo’ '. I call this ceremony completes the death, because someone who passed away recently would be considered really has died after a whole procession in this completes ceremony. Before filled prosesition, who died only considered being "sick" or "weak", so that his body was still laid out on her bed and her always food & drink served, areca or betel, cigarettes were still even though is certainly not dialogue will vote. Anyway still treated like a person who is not dead yet.

More than that, the Rambu solo ' is the ceremonial supply and offerings to the deceased to step into the realm of the spirit, back to eternity with its ancestors through a villa called the PUYA. Provision and complementary way to immortality is not limited to animals slaughtered victims at a ceremony only, but also on the property in the form of clothing, jewelry, and money is to be conducted along the remains of people who is the deat to the necropolis. To the ancestors who have family the deat much earlier, it can also be as offering sacrifices through relatives who are ceremonialed. In each of the ceremony's loyalty and love of each toraja to its parent, in the life and death.

Torajans believe that after death, the deceased person would travel to PUYA. Puya's own is the name of a village in the southern area of tana toraja. That's where the world where the spirits are, which is then at a later time will be transformed back into a notch deity dwells in the heavens, where human beings were created for the first time. Toraja call to mebali puang.
Back on Rambu Solo’ ' as Yepp refinement of death, all offerings brought on by a meniggal will decide also to the status of the Puya. No provision is appropriate, such a person will not be accepted as feasible when arrive at Puya.

2. Rambu Tuka'
Ceremony Rambu Tuka ' is a show with berhungan ngadain e.g. weddings, harvest home Thanksgiving and the inauguration of the new customs/tongkonan, or renovations; bring all family Grove, from the show make  the bond family in Baruppu ' Tana Toraja is powerful all the ceremony known as Ma'Bua ', Meroek, or Mangrara Banoa' Sura '.

Ceremonies Rambu Tuka ' followed by a dance: Pa ' Pa ' Boneballa, Gellu, Gellu Tungga ', Ondo Samalele, Pa'Dao, Pa'Burake, Memanna, Pa'Tirra, ' Maluya, Panimbong and others. For the art of music namely Pa'pompang, pa'Barrung, Pa'pelle '. Music and dance performed at Rambu Solo’ ' should not be featured on (taboo) Rambu Tuka ceremony '.

3. Ma ' Nene '
