Abstract

Purpose : The Integrated farming system offers better opportunities to be implemented in smallholder agriculture because it ensures productivity and profitability for sustainable livelihoods. However, the evaluation of this practice has not been clearly identified. This study is aimed at evaluating the ecological, economic, social, institutional, and technological aspects of sustainability of existing dairy-horticulture farming systems at farm level.


Research Method : Data were collected through survey design using questionnaire, observation, and literature review. This research used Multidimensional Scaling, leverage analysis and Monte Carlo called RAP-DHFS (Rapid Appraisal for Dairy-Horticulture Farming System) to analyze the data.


Findings : The results showed that the sustainability status of ecological dimension, economic dimension, social dimension, and technological dimension were classified as less sustainable which were 28.07%, 29.52%, 27.37%, and 29.15, respectively while the institutional dimension was considered as unsustainable (21.77%). There were also 10 attributes identified as the most influential attributes on the sustainability status.


Limitations : The study was conducted at one village, which is a small scope of area.


Value : This study provides a holistic assessment of the integrated farming system and shows the concern and risk for further development in rural areas.
