Abstract:

Every agricultural activity requires labor for the continuity of the process. This research aims to analyze the cost structure, income, and labor productivity of intercropping cayenne pepper and local tobacco in Subak Gede Sukawati, Gianyar Regency, Bali. The sampling technique used was proportional random sampling, with a total of 36 respondents. The analysis technique used is qualitative-descriptive analysis. The research results show that 1) the cost structure of intercropping cayenne pepper and tobacco farming in Subak Gede Sukawati in the 2022 planting season consists of total costs of IDR 110,977,760/ha, with variable costs of 83.37% and fixed costs of 16.63% of total costs; 2) farmers' income in this intercropping farming is IDR 40,907,960/ha; and 3) labor productivity in this intercropping farming is IDR 127,519/HOK. This value is greater than the wages of agricultural sector workers in the research area. The research suggestions are: 1) farmers continue to carry out intercropping farming; 2) carry out further research regarding the analysis of the suitability of commodities with land and agro-climatic conditions in various agricultural areas as well as identifying the advantages and disadvantages of each commodity cultivated in intercropping; and 3) the government facilitates researchers and farmers to increase farmers income.
