Abstract

The existing condition of the wanatani management in Amarasi District, Kupang Regency, NTT, has not optimized the welfare of the farmers yet, and the land degradation keeps happening. The objectives of this research was to analyze and obtain information on the ecological, social, and economic benefits of sustainable wanatani in dry land management. The research result shows that based on the observation from the ecological function including vegetation, land fertility, micro climate, erotion, and land suitability, wanatani is at present not optimal and not sustainable in supporting productivity and land conservation. From the economic function, the productivity in wanatani should be optimal, but the lack of institutional support and social function causes the agricultural management to be not optimal and not sustainable.
