Pig production in Indonesia. In 'Priorities for pig research in Southeast Asia and the Pacific to 2010'. ACIAR Working Paper No. 53.

This report provides a brief overview of pig production in Indonesia, in particular its significance in terms of pig exports and the predominance of smallholders. Government focus has been on both larger scale commercial production as well as significant support for smallholders through research and development, extension services, cooperative development and private sector provision of goods and services. The report provides details on investment priorities for the Indonesian pig industry.

Smallholder commercial pig production in East Nusa Tenggara - opportunities for better market integration. SADI Final Report, ACIAR-SMAR 2007/195.

The report examines the restaurant market as an opportunity for East Nusa Tengarra smallholders and identifies market chain issues and opportunities for development. Methodology involved initial feedback from value chain participants to identify a priority market sector for further analysis i.e. restaurant market. Farmer (n=102) and restaurant (n=50) surveys informed the restaurant market analysis.

Diversity of Indonesian mango (Mangifera indica) cultivars based on morphological and RAPD markers

This paper outlines the classification of 82 Indonesian mango cultivars based on morphological characters, RAPD markers (DNA) and a combination of both. Mango cultivars for classification were sourced from Cukur Gondang Collection Garden, East Java. Results, including coefficients of similarity, are presented and discussed for each method of classification: morphological, RAPD markers or the combination of both. The morphological assessment involved 92 morphological characteristics. Results of a cluster analysis provides some detail on the discerning characteristics for each cluster.

Mango production and industry in Indonesia

This report provides a very brief overview of Indonesian mango production and more specifically that of East Java. The information presented encompasses export potential, extension prospects, marketing of East Java mango and problems with extension of the mango industry in East Java. The discussion in these sections includes highlighting limitations to current mango production and identification of opportunities to expand and develop production. The report identifies East Java as having potential for further development and expansion of the mango industry in Indonesia.

Induction of flowering and yield of mango hybrids using Paclobutrazol

Development of mango hybrids is one strategy to improve mango quality to a level suitable for export markets, however, the duration of the juvenile phase is currently an obstacle. This paper outlines the use of the plant growth regulator, Paclobutrazol, to induce flowering and also assesses the impact on yield. The research involved a randomised block design with two levels of Paclobutrazol treatment and 20 accessions of mango hybrid. Results are presented and discussed based on the impact on induction of flowering and yield.

Mango value chain key informant interview synthesis. Report prepared as part of the USAID AMA CRSP Project “Access to Modernizing Value Chains by Small Farmers in Indonesia”

Rapid urban population growth has increased demand for quantity and quality of mangoes. This report outlines the changes in consumption that are driving changes in marketing and production. The project involved 113 interviews with various value chain stakeholders (input suppliers, farmers, brokers, processors and wholesale, traditional and modern markets) in East Java and West Java—provinces that produce 61 per cent of Indonesia's mango production.

The transparent margin partnership model: linking mango farmers to dynamic markets. Final report of case study component 2.

Traditionally, there has been no incentive for mango farmers to improve productivity and quality due to a weak bargaining position. This report analyses a transparent margin system (based on a collaborative partnership between the market supplier and a farmer group in Central Java) for enhanced smallholder involvement in the market chain. Methodology included interviews and focus group discussions with key market chain stakeholders, examination of farm to retail market marketing channels and cost benefit analysis of the supplier/farmer group partnership.

Farmers and traders in a changing maize market in East Java

This study uses maize to examine the potential for increasing the income of coarse grain, pulse, root and tuber farmers and employment in East Java. The study focuses on the development of industrial linkages and market opportunities (feed, alcohol, starch and corn oil). Four surveys were conducted: a survey of village officials to identify a case study village; a household survey (n= 81) for socio economics; a household income survey (n=34) and a market survey (n=102).

Development of quality protein maize (QPM) in Indonesia

This paper presents the findings of a study on two quality protein maize (QPM) varieties— Srikandi putih-1 (white kernels - for food) and Srikandi kuning-1 (yellow kernels - for animal feed). The research was based on two sets of experiments that were compared with the normal check varieties—22 populations of yellow QPM and 10 populations of white QPM. Each set used a randomized complete block design with three replications in 11 locations of central maize areas in Indonesia during 2002 and 2003.

Prospects of maize farming development in the rainfed lowlands of Indonesia

In recent years, maize cropping in Indonesia has been increasing rapidly at 20-30 per cent per annum, particularly in the lowlands. Yet more areas have the potential for development of maize farming. This paper presents the results of integrated maize management trials conducted in lowland areas of Sidrap regency in South Sulawesi during the dry seasons of 2006 and 2007. Data was gathered through Rural Participatory Appraisals, respondent interviews and secondary data collection.
