Abstract

The objective of research is to describe: 1) the dry field farmers’ knowledge on climate change, and 2) the farmers’ attitude to climate change. This research was conducted in Cemoro Sewu Rivershed, Karanganyar Regency using a descriptive qualitative method. Data collection was conducted through observation, in-depth interview, documentation, and Focus Group Discussion. Technique of analyzing data used was Miles and Huberman’s interactive model of analysis. Data validation was done using source and method triangulations. The result shows that farmers’ knowledge on climate change still belongs to low category, the use of titen or pranata mangsa signifying science is still applied by a few of people in their farming. Farmers deal with the climate change responsively, but they always feel anxious with the effect of climate change.
