Climate and Land Classification to Increase Agricultural Production in Banten Province, Indonesia

Yayat Ruhiat, Sulistyo Sidik Purnomo


Banten province is tropical wet and has production of rice, corn, soybeans, peanuts, green beans, cassava, and sweet potatoes. The productivity of each of these plants and district/city varies depending on the land area and climatic conditions. Climate and land classification were carried out in each district/city to determine productivity. This article aims to analyze climate using downscaling statistics with the delta method and regression analysis. The climate analysis resulted that the temperature range is 19.6-37.4oC, and rainfall is 0-436.3 mm/month. The range of temperature and rainfall in Banten Province is generally suitable for crops. Therefore, the seven crops can grow optimally at temperatures between 11oC and 30oC with rainfall between 85 and 820 mm/month. Based on rainfall, in Banten Province, five types of plants have optimal productivity. The five plants in question, namely: rice, corn, peanuts, green beans, and cassava, can grow with optimal productivity. Rice and maize can be developed in Pandeglang and Lebak Regencies because these two districts have suitable climatic conditions and sufficient land area.


Keywords: agricultural production, climate classification, temperature, rainfall, rice, maize.
