All aspects of prevention and countermeasures have been carried out by various parties around the world regarding the pandemic that has occurred from March 2020 to the present. The agricultural sector is of concern because it has an important role and is closely related to national food security, as well as the supporting sector to strengthen Indonesia economy, particularly in such condition. Agriculture also can offer a solution to avoid food crises. One of the activities is to diversify food and not rely entirely on the amount of food in the market. This activity attempts to utilized limited area available in the city, thus it becomes more productive especially during pandemic. The hydroponic and aquaponic system of agricultural cultivation technology provides an alternative to be used as an adequate source of income and can meet family food needs. This technique can be carried out by people who live both in rural and urban areas which is not required a wide space. This activity can strengthen family food security as well as become additional income or even the main income of the family.</p> Laily Dwi Arsyianti Divary Raihan Pratama Nadia Fauzana Ryan Arif Basardi Copyright (c) 2021-06-07 2021-06-07 7 2 107 114 10.29244/agrokreatif.7.2.107-114 Penerapan Urban Farming dengan Sistem Hidroponik Menggunakan Botol Bekas melalui Kuliah Kerja Nyata Mahasiswa (KKNM) Virtual https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/32184 <p>Hydroponically planting vegetables is something new for most of the KKNM participants. KKNM activities are carried out for 30 working days based on modules and WhatsApp Group. The vegetable cultivation module with a hydroponic system using used bottles is systematically arranged, equipped with pictures to make it easy for each KKNM participant to implement. WhatsApp Group is used as a means of discussion and consultation.

This village has the potential to develop into an agro-tourism area based on the natural resources and community participation. Presently, community-based agro-tourism is being developed in this area through the Gadjah Mada University Assisted Village program. Therefore, this programme aims to 1) Identify the potential of natural resources and village landscapes; 2) Increase community participation in developing villages; and 3) Empower natural resources and village communities for agro-tourism development. Data were obtained from community participation-based agro-tourism planning using the Business Model Canvas (BMC) method and the Training on Trainer system from June to October 2020. Furthermore, during the Covid 19 pandemic, tourism education was carried out using an online method such as Google meet and whatsapp group platforms. The implementation of the direct meeting program (offline) was limited due to health protocol. Potential identification carried out by the community in 15 hamlets of Tirtomulyo Village shows the potential for natural resource attractions based on local wisdom consisting of natural resources, yards (<em>pekarangan</em>), cultural table 1dance, handicrafts, culinary, and fisheries. The result showed that online and offline discussions and the making of BMC posters are some of the efforts used in building villages for agro-tourism development. Furthermore, various natural resources as the potential of agro-tourism attractions have started to be empowered, including plant nurseries in the yard (<em>pekarangan</em>), peanut brittle, <em>gula semut</em>, and banana weevil chips well as a homestay. Therefore, the coordination of the inter-hamlet agro-tourism program at the village level still needs to be improved.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Siti Nurul Rofiqo Irwan Hani Perwitasari Muhamad Muhamad Copyright (c) 2021 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2021-06-07 2021-06-07 7 2 122 130 10.29244/agrokreatif.7.2.122-130 Peningkatan Kesadaran Lingkungan dan Kesehatan Masyarakat Desa Somongari melalui Edukasi Dampak Pupuk dan Pestisida Anorganik https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/32156 <p>Somongari Village, located in Purworejo District, Central Java Province, is well-known as a producer of durian and mangosteen fruits. The income of Somongari Villagers depends on this commodity, however because of durian and mangosteen can only be harvested during a specific season, the villager plans to build vegetable houses for their daily needs. Based on the data obtained through Forum Group Discussion (FGD) with representatives of the villager and farmer group, the villager had not used organic fertilizers and pesticides. The practicality and fast yield of inorganic fertilizers and pesticides are the reasons villagers use them more. In contrast, the application of inorganic fertilizers and pesticides can hurt the environment and human health. Therefore, education was carried out for the Somongari villagers to increase the knowledge and awareness of environmental sustainability and health, primarily due to inorganic fertilizer and pesticide impact. The method used in this event was include preparation (coordination and problem identification through FGD), implementation (delivery of material), evaluation, and follow-up plans. After this activity, public knowledge of the impact of inorganic fertilizers and pesticides has increased. It can be seen from the pretest and post-test scores, respectively, before and after the material's presentation. In addition, the success of this program can also be seen from the awareness of the villager to make follow-up plans related to the production of organic fertilizers and pesticides.</p> Purwanti Pratiwi Purbosari Hadi Sasongko Zuchrotus Salamah Nurul Putrie Utami Copyright (c) 2021 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2021-06-07 2021-06-07 7 2 131 137 10.29244/agrokreatif.7.2.131-137 Pengenalan Rumput Mulato sebagai Potensi Sumber Hijauan Sapi Perah di Kelompok Peternak Tunas Mekar, KSU Tandangsari, Sumedang https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/32682 <p>The Tunas Mekar Farmer Group (TMFG) is a group of farmers belong to dairy farming cooperation (KSU) Tandangsari with the commodity of Friesian Holstein (FH) dairy cattle whose business objectives are to produce cow's milk and breeding of dairy cows. One of the problems that may have caused the low milk production was the result of the low quality and availability of the forage provided by the KPTM members. It is necessary to look for forage alternatives that have advantages in biomass and protein and fiber content, in the hope that it can help meet the nutritional needs of livestock. One of the forages that has advantages in protein and fiber content is mulato grass (<em>Brachiaria hybrid cv. Mulato</em>) which is reported to have the ability to live in a good dry season, easy to breed through tillers, and quite high palatability by ruminants. This community service is carried out to introduce and disseminate the potential benefits of mulato grass as a potential forage source for dairy cows. Community service activities are carried out with the exploratory stage, then the extension stage, and followed by the mentoring stage using an online platform (Whatsapp group). Community service activities regarding the potential of mulato grass as a forage for dairy cows were successfully implemented. With the enthusiasm of extension participants, extension activities can increase the insight of farmers participating in the extension, reflected in the success of farmers in planting and cultivating mulato grass.</p> Novi Mayasari Lia Budimulyati Salman Iin Susilawati Apong Sandrawati Muhammad Rifqi Ismiraj Copyright (c) 2021 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2021-06-07 2021-06-07 7 2 138 147 10.29244/agrokreatif.7.2.138-147 Pengembangan Pendederan Ikan Kerapu melalui Peningkatan Kapasitas Kelompok untuk Penguatan Komoditas Unggulan Kabupaten Administratif Kepulauan Seribu, Jakarta https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/35881 <p>Nursery needs to be developed to strengthen the grouper as a superior commodity for the Seribu Islands Administrative District, Jakarta. This effort is carried out through the development of human resources (HR) and appropriate technology (AT), and hoped that the grouper nursery will become a new business unit in this district, where most of the area is sea. This activity aims to develop HR and AT for grouper nursery through training, piloting, and mentoring. This activity was carried out to 23 community members who are members of the three fish farmer groups. The training materials including the technical and management aspects of the grouper nursery.&nbsp; The piloting and mentoring of grouper nursery were carried out in parallel with the development of AT in the form of the application of garlic-meniran flour, and were carried out at the Sea Farming Center of PKSPL-IPB, Seribu Islands. The piloting includes preparing of cages, stocking of seeds, feeding, water quality and fish health management, sampling, harvesting, and post-harvest handling. The mentoring is carried out by serving participant visits to the center, interviews and meetings. After the training there was an increase in knowledge and skills of the participants, as well as the emergence of motivation to start a grouper nursery business. During the piloting and mentoring, the involvement and enthusiasm of the participants was relatively high and various aspects were discussed. The application of meniran-garlic flour in feeding on grouper nurseries can improve the feed conversion ratio, so that feed costs are more efficient. One of the participants has tried to run humpback grouper fish farming independently, and made a profit after two months of rearing.</p> Irzal Effendi Iis Diatin Tatag Budiardi Yani Haderoseyani Copyright (c) 2021-06-07 2021-06-07 7 2 148 161 10.29244/agrokreatif.7.2.148-161 Pengembangan Pompa Irigasi Pertanian Menggunakan Energi Listrik Tenaga Surya di Desa Duri, Slahung, Ponorogo https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/32100 <p>Community service program To develop agricultural irrigation is carried out in Duri village, Slahung sub-district, Ponorogo district. Agriculture in Duri village has been dependent on irrigation from the rain so agricultural activities only rely on the availability of water during the rainy season, while the potential for water from groundwater with a depth of 20 m has not been able to be utilized optimally because it is constrained by relatively expensive equipment and technology. For this reason, a community service program is carried out which aims to meet the irrigation needs of farmers. The method of implementing activities consists of an inventory of data related to the conditions and needs of materials to be applied with technology, technology design, technology application, training in the use of technology, and evaluation. The result of the activity is a program of implementing an irrigation pump with solar cell electricity that is applied to one of the farmer groups' fields, namely a water pump that is able to lift water from a depth of 20 m with a water discharge of 1080 L/hour and is able to last for 2 hours. able to meet water needs in the dry season and can be used to grow crops on a small scale such as vegetable crops on a land area of 100 m.</p> Didik Riyanto Yoyok Winardi Mohammad Muhsin Copyright (c) 2021 Agrokreatif: Jurnal Ilmiah Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat 2021-06-07 2021-06-07 7 2 162 167 10.29244/agrokreatif.7.2.162-167 Peningkatan Pengetahuan dan Ketrampilan Kader melalui Pelatihan Konseling Menyusui di Puskesmas Nania Kota Ambon https://journal.ipb.ac.id/index.php/j-agrokreatif/article/view/32600 <p>The low coverage of exclusive breastfeeding is due to the lack of public understanding of the benefits and importance of exclusive breastfeeding for infant aged 0–6 months, so it is necessary to empower posyandu cadre as breastfeeding counsellor who provide counselling for mothers to Nania health center as counsellor breastfeeding.
