Abstract

Paddy production continues to increase through intensification,extensification, rehabilitation and infrastructure development. Therefore, land productivity, planted area and cropping index increase annually. It is expected that sustainable self sufficiency in rice can be achieved. However, one of the obstacles faced by rice farmers is the limitation of labor force, especially for cultivating the soil, planting simultaneously and harvesting rice. In addition, during dry season, the farmers have to deal with limited water for paddy field; therefore, they must rent water pump. This study aims to analyze financial feasibility of several services unit of agricultural equipment and machinery and how the appropriate institutional form of services unit of agricultural equipment and machinery can be sustainably operated. This research was analyzed by quantitative descriptive analysis using measurement criteria of financial viability and sensitivity analyzes. The research was conducted in 2016 with a case study method. The sample of water pumps, soil cultivating machines and paddy planting machines was taken purposively at the center of paddy production areas in Lampung Province. The result showed that water pump service unit, soil cultivating service unit and paddy planting machines unit are financially feasible. Non formal institutions (family businesses) dominate the institutional form of agricultural equipment and machinery business unit reflected by the rules that are still simple but vulnerable to conflicts regarding work area and business sustainability. Keywords: machinery, financial, institution
