Abstract

. Upland in vegetable horticulture farming area in highland is more and more intensively cultivated by farmer and has strategic development opportunity. Land in this area has specific characteristic, so it needs to be known its properties in order to be able to manage well and properly. Vegetable horticulture farming area in highland is generally located at the region of upper 700 m asl with average rainfall of 2800 – 3300 mm annually, average air temperature 16 - 22oC and rolling to hilly (9 - >45 %) terrain. Soil in vegetable horticulture farming area in highland is dominated by Andisols ordo with the high organic-C content, low bulk density (BD), high porosity, high rapid drainage pore distribution, and high soil permeability. Base on the agroecosystem point of view, there are many constraints as well as soil physics characteristic which due to technically implication and need specific land management strategy that to be faced on several implementation constraints too. Land management strategy in highland vegetable horticulture farming area is directed to conservation farming systems/CFS which can controll soil erosion reached to below tolerable soil loss, in situ organic matter management, carbon efficient farming/CEF as well as zero waste farming systems/ZWFS.
