Investigation of Utilizing Coffee Commodities toward Land Suitability, Case Study: Mane Village, Aceh Province

Muhammad Akbar, Abubakar Karim, Sugianto Sugianto


The characteristics of tropical forests in Indonesia produce various types of plants that can be used to improve the economic sector of the surrounding communities. The study is carried out on several suitable plants to be cultivated. Coffee plants such as Arabica Coffee (Coffea arabica) and Robusta coffee (Coffea Canephora) are one of them. It will be conducted to figure out whether coffee plants are sufficiently feasible to be cultivated especially in Mane Village, Aceh Province, which is the location of the research. Feasibility of coffee plants is reviewed from soil analysis based on the soil research center (1983), land suitability and slope class. The results show that coffee plants are feasible to be used as one of the potential cultivated commodities.
