Abstract

This study was carried out to analyze the characteristics of vegetable farmers in Aceh on the condition of the supporting institutions they have and their influence on the development of vegetable agribusiness in Aceh. The method of analysis used is T-test between characteristics of supporting institutions and the level of productivity and income level of vegetable farming in Aceh. Through analysis towards farming of 50 farmers in 2 regencies of vegetable production centers in Aceh, the results showed that although the characteristics of supporting institutions in the development of vegetable agribusiness in Aceh were relatively poor, these characteristics significantly affected the level of productivity and income levels of vegetable farmers in Aceh. For this reason, it is necessary to improve the characteristics of supporting institutions in Aceh so that vegetable agribusiness develops well.
