Several problems in farming are the use of chemical fertilizers, management of agriculture and domestic wastes properly; even some people disposing of garbage in the river and also, the institutional Farmer Group Association (Gapoktan) and Female Farmer Group (KWT) are not functioning optimally. The use of an integrated farming system can increase land and livestock productivities and reduce the volume of agriculture and domestic wastes all at once. This community empowerment activity aimed to increase the people's knowledge and skill of Cibitung Tengah Village in terms of processing agricultural and domestic wastes. Thus it will overcome the garbage and overuse of chemical fertilizer problems. The discussions and outreach activities were done by a door-to-door approach, especially for people who have not been actively involved in Gapoktan and KWT. This research was carried out with several educational activities such as counseling on community waste management systems, training on organic waste processing, Black Soldier Fly (BSF) training, processing organic waste with BSF technology, making silage as goat feed, and making branding of agricultural products. This empowerment program produced new products or processed products. The products will increase the income for the people of Cibitung Tengah, such as maggot processing products, CS-Fresh products, results from waste banks, and handicraft products from waste.</p> Dimas Andrianto Husnawati Zulfikar Muchammad Danty Oktiana Prastiwi Gina Oktaviani Sabrina Muhammad Farhan Imelia Dewi Elgiani Yassifa Yulia Nur Insari Amrista Fanzani Kananga Slamet Hamzah Sri Wahyuni Muhammad Irfansyah Pradika Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 195 205 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.195-205 Pengembangan Tanaman Sereh Wangi untuk Bioreklamasi Lahan dan Pemberdayaan Ekonomi Masyarakat di Muaro Jambi http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/27823 <p>Degraded land due to brick industry, piling material, and coal mining activities are widely covered the area of Kebon IX Village, Sungai Gelam Subdistrict, Muaro Jambi District. This service activity was aimed at encouraging collective action by the village community of Kebun IX to apply citronella cultivation and processing technology in order to rehabilitate their land as well as develop productive economic businesses as a substitute for their old businesses that were not environmentally friendly. The method used was the combination of <em>Participatory Rural Appraisal </em>(PRA) and collective action model in promotion strategy and technology adoption. Through counseling, training and demonstration plots, four types of integrated businesses, including cultivation, processing and utilization of citronella by-product, have been successfully developed in Kebon IX Village. Citronella plants at aged 6‒8 months produced leaves at a price of IDR 500/kg and after 3 months can be harvested again. One clump of citronella plants can produce 1.5 kg at the first harvest and increase to 2.0 kg after the next harvest. One hectare of land can contain 1000‒1500 clumps of citronella plants. Citronella plant soil costs IDR 250,000/L, the residue of the distillation can be used as animal feed (IDR 150/kg) or used as trichocompost (IDR 1,200/kg). Trichocompost is also needed as organic fertilizer for the continuity of citronella cultivation. The integration of citronella plants cultivation and processing industry has a positive impact on land reclamation efforts as well as to empower the community's economy.</p> Mursalin Mursalin Eva Achmad Ardi Novra Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 206 212 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.206-212 Pemanfaatan Teknologi Probio_Fm dalam Penerapan Sistem Integrasi Sapi Kelapa Sawit di Bangka Tengah http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/27489 <p>The integrated cattle and oil palm system is part of an excellent program of the Bangka Tengah Regency to increase the production of plantation and livestock. The benefit of the system is ensuring the availability of the animal feed derived from oil palm plantation waste while the feces of cattle is potential in producing the fertilizer for oil palm. The community service aims to alter the paradigm of the society on the integrated cattle and oil palm system as well as to empower the people to implement the system. Four steps were used as the methods to implement the programs are preparation; socialization; simulation; and monitoring and evaluation. Qualitative descriptive was employed to analyze the data. The program found that 90% of stock farmers agreed that the system was easily doable. The stock farmers were able to use the probio_Fm technology in implementing the system by making the silage made from the oil palm plantation waste. The knowledge of beneficiaries had increased and their behavior in feeding activities had positively altered through the program. It was found that the livestock required a week to adapt to the silage as the fermented materials in the probio-Fm technology. The use of a chopping machine was able to be a choice as it was able to produce the smoother chopped midrib. It concludes that the system is sustainably used to be implemented by Tunas Baru stock farmer.</p> Yudi Sapta Pranoto Fournita Agustina Rufti Puji Astuti Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 213 221 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.213-221 Pendampingan Masyarakat Dalam Upaya Pengembangan Sentra Produksi Jagung Hibrida di Desa Morome Kabupaten Konawe Selatan Sulawesi Tenggara http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/33498 <p>The aim of assistance is to improve the economy of the Morome Village community by increasing the production of hybrid maize.

The low marketability and storability of tawes requires innovation in fish processing of tawes into tawes crispy chips (taspy) to increase the marketability of tawes which then be a business oppurtunity for fishermen households to increase their income. However, inovation itself is not enough to increase fishermen household income, it requires effort to build business motivation in fishermen households to take business opportunity. This community service program aimed to know the success of training and group mentoring as an effort to foster business motivation of fishermen households. The program was carried out using intensive training and group mentoring methods for 33 fishermen households in Watupecah Hamlet covering the development of business motivation, time and behavior management, processing and marketing of taspy products. The results of the program showed that there was a changed in fishermen's knowledge and motivation on the aspect of innovation, dreams, and financial management. The success of this program is evidenced by the growth of the business motivation of fishermen households based on data analysis before and after the implementation of the program. It can be concluded that training and group mentoring are effective techniques in fostering business motivation of fishermen households. Through training and group mentoring the fishermen had chance to dialogue, share suggestion and opinions, cooperate, and interact positively with each other in a comfortable atmosphere as to support the growth of stronger ebusiness motivation of fishermen households.</p> Ratri Virianita Kesha Jonathan Nadia Putri Firdausa Husnul Maab Anzari Nurulia Naurah Khansa Khanya Pangestika Indah Pratiwi Anhar Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 229 238 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.229-238 Pemberdayaan Kelompok Masyarakat Pesisir melalui Budi Daya Rumput Laut Metode Vertikultur di Kawasan Perdesaan Tumbuh Lestari Desa Rambu Rambu, Kabupaten Konawe Selatan http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/27451 <p>Rambu-rambu Village is one of the villages clustered within the Tumbuh Lestari rural area of North Konawe District.

In addition, this activity is expected to increase knowledge and skills in productive economic business activities. The method of implementing PKM is the method of demonstration plot, where the target community groups play an active role at all stages of activities. Implementation of activities offered to support the realization of PKM activities with steps that have been mutually agreed upon include strengthening and socializing PKM activities, training, strengthening institutional management, demonstration plots of integrated system cultivation and coaching and mentoring. The results of PKM activities provide a positive value for the target community, with integrated aquaculture production of floating net cages (KJA) in the sea no longer relying on one commodity, but one KJA unit can produce two commodities namely lobster (<em>Panulirus homarus</em>) and pearl shells (<em>Pinctada maxi</em>ma). Thus the potential to provide additional income for the community from these two commodities. In addition, through this PKM activity, it is expected that the knowledge and skills of the target communities will increase in order to strengthen community partnerships.</p> Muhamad Junaidi Bagus Dwi Hari Setyono Fariq Azhar Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 249 259 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.249-259 Pelatihan Komunikasi Daring yang Efektif bagi Anggota Asosiasi Pengusaha Patin UKM Indonesia http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/31215 <p>Catfish is a reigning top commodity both in the Indonesian market and overseas. Large-scale catfish farming companies have managed to communicate their products well, as evidenced by their effective online communication. However, that is not the case with small and medium-sized catfish farmers. Only some members of Asosiasi Pengusaha Patin/Catfish Indonesia (APCI) have successfully established online communication methods through websites and social media campaigns. This necessitates the rest of the members to be assisted in holding themselves up against tight competition especially in the global market through online communication training. This training program aims to raise awareness, knowledge, and understanding of the importance of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) dabbling in catfish farming and production to display their products online. The methods used in this activity involve formulating initial research, designing the training materials and consultations, preparing the training program, and evaluating the program. This training program is successful in raising the awareness and understanding of the members of APCI and will be useful in further stages of implementation.</p> Maulana Amalia Irzal Effendi Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 260 268 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.260-268 Edukasi Budi Daya Ikan Lele Kolam Terpal di Panti Asuhan Nurul Ikhsan Merawang Kabupaten Bangka http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/28895 <p>Growing catfish is relative needs a short time (3-4 months) that can be profitable for cultivators. The increase of public demand for catfish provides an opportunity for everyone to carry out this business, including the orphanage students. Because of this, the orphan empowerment aimed to educate and practice the basics of conventional catfish farming used probio-Fm technology. The program was conducted in November-December 2018. The empowerment program location was at Nurul Ikhsan Orphanage, Batu Rusa village, Merawang District, Bangka Regency, Bangka Belitung Islands Province. The participants were 40 orphans. Four steps of the program consisted of&nbsp; 1) preparation (coordination, survey, and materials preparation), 2) discussion of the training materials (management of conventional catfish farming) 3) Field practice (demonstration of plastic fish tank design and application of probio-Fm) 4) Monitoring and evaluation (the distribution of the questionnaire). Based on the questionnaire, the average of participants (50 %) agreed if they categorized as motivated participants in the program, the Transfering theory and practice methods were easy to understand and follow their needs. Besides, they&nbsp; agreed on the continuity of the program. We concluded that the program succeeded in educating the orphan student about cultivating the catfish with the conventional method based on probio-Fm, however, catfish maintenance should be accompanied by the intensive assistance until harvest. Educating catfish business analysis could more motivate the orphanage student to practice catfish farming.</p> Fika Dewi Pratiwi Eddy Jajang Jaya Atmadja Rufti Puji Astuti Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 269 275 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.269-275 Pelatihan Teknis dalam Rangka Perbaikan Mutu Gula Semut di Kabupaten Tasikamaya http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/29245 <p>Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) in Tasikmalaya District are still managed traditionally. SME’s has not implemented a standard process so that the final product has various qualities. This activity aims to provide training on brown sugar quality assurance, Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP), sanitation, as well as good practice of brown sugar making and the use of measuring tools to standardize the process. The training was carried out for five days in Sariwangi District, Tasikmalaya Regency with the target of 20 sugar entrepreneurs from 4 districts, namely Sariwangi, Culamega, Puspahiang, and Curug Gambir. The results showed that all participants did not yet have production facilities that met the GMP requirements, did not understand the meaning of quality assurance and the use of measuring instruments that supported the improvement of the quality of brown sugar. The post-test results showed an increase in the awareness of SMEs about quality assurance of brown sugar, as indicated by the rise in the test score from 31.39 to 49.72. Process improvements include improving the sap filtering, crystallization, and adding egg white to bind the impurities.

Puri Farm Living is a kefir-producing business unit located in Tuban District which often faced the problem of declining of kefir liquid quality during the shipping process. Kefir liquid suffered damage caused by bacterial growth activities which can continuously press the container. Thus, the container is not able to accommodate it. In addition, kefir products have a fairly short expiration period if they are exposed in ambient temperature for more than 6 hours. Freeze drying is a method of drying food products at low temperatures to maintain the function of bacteria in kefir. The community service program aims to provide the partner member skills in operating the freeze drying device. The stages of the program includes: 1) problem survey and needs analysis, 2) design of freeze drying equipment, 3) testing and installation, 4) training, 5) monitoring and evaluation. The results indicate that partners are able to use the freeze drying device, both in the process of preparing raw materials, production, and packaging. In addition, the partner has succeeded to produce 150 capsules containing dried kefir that have not been damaged after more than 6 hours. Moreover, there are business units from other regions that highly want to apply this method in kefir processing. Therefore, this method has been considered quite effective to overcome the problem of distributing kefir products.</p> Eka Lutfi Septiani Qurrotin Arifianti Anni Rahmat Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 281 288 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.281-288 Evaluasi Pascapelatihan pada Kelompok Tani Hutan Pemegang Izin Perhutanan Sosial di Jawa Barat dan Jawa Tengah Tahun 2019 http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/28572 <p>Social forestry is sustainable forest management system implemented by local communities of Forest Farmer Group (FFG) aiming to increase community welfare, environmental balance and social cultural dynamics. Environment and Forestry Training Center Kadipaten conducted training to support social forestry programs with on-site model and was held August‒October 2018 in West Java and Central Java. The post-training evaluation was conducted one year after the training finished from June‒August 2019. The post-training evaluation aims to assess the suitability of the training materials with the needs of the farming business and the benefits of the training on the farming business developed by KTH. Data collection is done through questionnaires and interviews. The data analysis used descriptive analysis. The evaluation results on several training, i.e measurement and participatory mapping of social forestry areas, agroforestry engineering, oyster mushroom cultivation, making, packaging and marketing of bokashi, and nature tour guide showed that aspects of the relevance of the training to the needs of farming businesses are in the medium to high categories. The benefits of training to the farming businesses are in the medium and high category. To improve the quality of the training process and results, it is necessary to conduct a more careful analysis of training needs so that the training program is in line with the needs of the target community.</p> Amin Fauzi Copyright (c) 2020 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2020-11-27 2020-11-27 6 3 289 296 10.29244/agrokreatif.6.3.289-296 Pelatihan Pendampingan Pembuatan Peta Tematik Menggunakan GPS dan Aplikasi CAD http://jma.journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/27484 <p>One of the problems in the development of human resource professionalism so far is related to land issues (boundaries).
