Agriculture extension as education to maintain environmental stability: Study in DKI Jakarta

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Environmental impacts caused by agricultural activities can be reduced by changing the use of chemical pesticides into biopesticides. Efforts made in this way are starting to become global considerations as a strategy to maintain environmental stability and maintain plant quality. This strategy has begun to be applied in Indonesia, especially in agriculture in DKI Jakarta. The research approach used in this research is a qualitative approach with in-depth interviews with government actors. This research aims to find a reasonable effort for taking a social approach through environmental education. The results obtained in this study are agricultural extension, which needs to be carried out as a form of ecological education of farming actors in DKI Jakarta. The strategy to support environmental education, apart from utilizing counseling, was also carried out by field schools to provide additional technical knowledge in agricultural land management. Based on the research conducted, it can be concluded that in addition to the government's active role in environmental education, it also needs synergy from agricultural actors to create environmental stability.
