Abstract

The Indonesian government is committed to implementing sustainable agriculture. One of the ways to implement sustainable agriculture is to implement an Organic Farming System. However, the level of consumption and availability of organic fertilizers in Indonesia is still very low. As we know, organic fertilizer is able to retain CO2 in the soil, so that it can reduce carbon emissions which cause climate change. For this reason, a strategy for developing the organic fertilizer industry is needed. In this study, the strategy was formulated using the method of SOAR (Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, Results) analysis and the QSPM (Quantitative Strategic Planning Matrix). It was found 3 (three) main strategies, namely: 1). Encouraging the involvement of research institutions, universities and industry in developing the organic fertilizer industry. 2). Encouraging farmer awareness to use organic fertilizers. 3). Conduct education, dissemination, and sosialization to officials and farmers about organic fertilizers. Furthermore, to realize these strategies, it is necessary to elaborate in more detail in operational policies and programs.
