WINNER 2022 » Poster Session » Future Studies for Developing Non-Tidal Swampland Sustainable Farming Systems
Authors: Arinal Haq Izzawati Nurrahma

The increase of 1.3% annual population required more food, despite a decline in planted area and crop production. It is mandatory to increase agricultural yield to meet food needs and adapt to climate changes. Swampland is an agroecosystem which plays a potential role in enhancing rice production, although basically has problems such as inundation, low soil fertility, and insufficient infrastructure. Several efforts have been made to improve swampland rice tolerance and specific cultivation methods. However, climate change worsens environmental stresses (drought, flooding, pest and disease) severely. The goal of this literature review is to find out the possible actions for future development of the swampland sustainable farming system as the potential source of staple food production aligning with the effort to deal with climate changes. Prospected studies for the future sustainable farming systems in non-tidal swampland are, but not limited to, the improvement of rice tolerance and additional value through plant breeding, the cultivation methods suitable for each land typology as well as saving cost and labour use, and the enhancement of swampland farmer welfare by introducing on/off season secondary crops cultivation.<br />
