Abstract

The cultivation of community forestry (Hutan Kemasyarakatan/HKm) land by planting some crops had increased its economic value. Therefore, this study aims to identify the types of food crop products and analyze the economic value of HKm food products. The data was obtained through in-depth interviews and field observations. Data analysis was done by qualitative and quantitative methods. The results showed that the products utilized in HKm consist of 28 species dominated by coffee products. These products are mixed from agricultural crops, plantations, and forestry planted in agroforestry on HKm land with coffee plants as the main crop. Other food products that are also found in HKm are chili, pepper, spring onions, cocoa, cloves, avocado and so on. Crops products other than coffee are planted spread among coffee plants with an average number of coffee plants of 2000 to 2500 stems per ha. The economic value of HKm food products reached 5 billion Rp. with the highest economic value being the coffee product as the main plant (60 %). The highest economic benefit of HKm land occurs in August while the economic benefits are low enough in December, January, February, March, and April. Farmers need to diversify food products and take into account the harvest period in order to obtain the optimum benefits from HKm land at all times. Therefore, farmers are advised to plant commercial crops such as bananas, papaya, eggplant, chayote, tomatoes, spring onions, avocados, jackfruit, sugar palm, pepper, ginger and chili with an agroforestry system because these species have high economic value and are able to provide sustainable economic and ecological benefits, while for coffee, cacao and cloves, although the economic value is high, it is not recommended to develop on HKm land because it is related to the policy which only allows maintaining coffee and cocoa plants in the forest. In this regard, the Government’s support is very much needed related to HKm’s policy based on the economic value in order to reconcile the interests of the community and forest sustainability. Key words: agroforestry, HKm food product, HKm land.
