Abstract

Pandemic Covid-19 poses a negative impact on all aspects of human life around the world. Since the widespread transmission of covid-19 in March 2019, almost every business in the world is experiencing a decline in production, some even closing their doors for lack of income. This is due to an imbalance between income and the cost of production. Especially in the field of agricultural products, raw materials for food and the nine basic human needs also experienced a negative impact, to the detriment of many farmers. Suppose the conditions before the pandemic covid-19, there were still many people who consumed rice, vegetables, fish, meat, eggs, chicken, milk, fruits, herbal medicine, and so on, because regular income is still there for the shopping needs of day-to-day, while after the In this position, the role of the government in providing solutions to farmers is expected to provide training and knowledge so that the farmers can obtain a second opinion on creating an alternative fertilizer, pesticides, and nursery/nursery itself, which can ultimately reduce the cost of production and can be independent in conducting the needs of agricultural production once the pandemic covid-19 is over and all the economic activity is back to normal.
