The growth of weeds among agricultural crops is a pest that can decrease agricultural production by 47-87%. The aims of this research is to compare organic and an organic fertilizer and compare mechanical and chemical weed and pest control. This research employed a mixed-method, observation, in-depth interviews, and life cycle assessment. The greenhouse gas emissions were released are organic fertilizer 1,87 x 10-3 kg CO2 eq/ha and an organic fertilizer 15 x 101 kg CO2 eq/ha. Thereafter greenhouse gas emissions were released from mechanical control 1,87 x 10-3 kg CO2 eq/ha and chemical control 4,4 x 101 kg CO2 eq/ha. The totally of greenhouse gas emissions was released from dryland paddy farming in management phase is 19,4 x 101 kg CO2 eq/ha. Organic fertilizer more friendly than an organic fertilizer and mechanical control more friendly than chemical control. Mechanical control by farmers must be modified for the increase of effectiveness. The post-mechanical control should be those containing fruit and seed must be burned, meaning there will be not a longer any weed growth potential. Therefore, this mechanism will be able to realize potential production and sustainable dryland paddy farming.
