Agriculture (also called farming or husbandry) is the cultivation of animals, plants, fungi and other life forms for

food, fiber and other products used to sustain life.

The major agricultural products can be broadly grouped into : Foods Fibers Fuels Raw materials

Example : Cereals Vegetables Fruits Meat

Fibers include : Cotton Wool Hemp Silk Flax

Other useful materials are produced by plants : Resins Biofuels include methane from biomass, ethanol, and biodiesel.

Raw materials include : Lumber Bamboo.

There are several factors that are very influential in agricultural products : Fertilizers Pesticides agricultural Technology Seeds Pests Weeds, etc.

Fertilizer is any organic or inorganic material of natural or synthetic (other than liming materials) is added to soil to supply one or more plant nutrients essential for plant growth. A final assessment. Found that about 40 to 60% of the crop caused by the use of commercial fertilizers. The use of inorganic fertilizers has also significantly support the growth of the global population - has been estimated that nearly half the people on Earth now being fed as a result of the use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers

Pesticides are substances or mixtures of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling or reduce pests of any kind. Pesticides may be a unicycle chemical, biological agents (such as viruses or bacteria), antimicrobial, disinfectant or device used against any pest. Pesticides are grouped into four main substituents chemicals : herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and bactericides.

A seed is a small embryonic plant enclosed in a covering called the seed coat, usually with some stored food. Seeds have been significant developments in the reproduction and spread of flowering plants, relative to more primitive plants like mosses, ferns and liverworts, which do not have the seeds and use other means to propagate themselves. It can be seen by the success of seed plants (both gymnosperms and angiosperms) in dominating biological niches on land, from forests to grasslands both in hot and cold climates.

Indonesia is a relatively fertile tropical regions due to be passed by a belt of fire (Volcano series) which causes the soil Indonesia formed mostly from the plains of Volkan. The island of Java for example. But they became farmers were full of misery, making the most of the population choose to find another job as long as it not farmers. But the fact is rather advanced agriculture Indonesia but instead bypassed by other countries to gain further insight just wrestling in this field.

What is the agricultural potential of Indonesia?

Indonesia has the potential of natural resources, including germplasm, which is abundant (mega biodiversity). Bio-diversity onshore Indonesia is the world's second largest after Brazil, whereas when including marine biodiversity, Indonesia is one of the world's largest. It can be seen with the various types of agricultural crops, horticulture, plantations and farms that have long been cultivated as a source of food and income.

Indonesia has the potential availability of land large enough and has not been used optimally. The number of extents and distribution of forests, rivers, swamps and lakes and rainfall is quite high and evenly distributed throughout the year is really a natural potential to meet the water needs of agriculture if managed properly. Reservoirs, dams, ponds and groundwater and other surface water is the potential to support the development of agricultural businesses.
