This research focuses on a development of satellite-based drought monitoring warning system for croplands in Asian countries. Drought condition of cropland is evaluated by using Keeth-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) computed from rainfall measurements with GSMaP product, land surface temperature by MTSAT product and vegetation phenology by MODIS NDVI product at daily basis. The derived information is disseminated as a system for an application of space based technology (SBT) in the implementation of the Core Agriculture Support Program. The benefit of this system are to develop satellite-based drought monitoring and early warning system in Asian counties using freely available data, and to develop capacity of policy makers in those countries to apply the developed system in policy making. A series of training program has been carried out in 2013 and 2014 to officers and researchers of ministry of agriculture and relevant agencies in Greater Mekong Subregion countries including Cambodia, China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia. This system is running as fully operational and can be accessed at http://webgms.iis.u-tokyo.ac.jp/DMEWS/.

The purpose of this study is to assess landslide susceptibility in East Java, Indonesia using Remote Sensing and GIS. The study area covers Malang (3,775.8 Km2) and Blitar (1,726.8 Km2) districts. These areas face frequent problem of shallow landslides which are often caused by the intense rainfall in sloping agricultural area. Wrong land management practices which have been applied without any regard to soil conservation aggravate the occurrence of shallow landslides. Regional scale study is thus necessary to identify critical areas in order to meet sustainable agricultural farming practices. The deterministic Stability Index MAPping (SINMAP) model is used for this study. Input to the SINMAP model includes Digital Elevation Model (DEM) grid theme, landslide initiation point theme, soil-strength and hydrological parameters such as transmissivity and steady state recharge. Both the districts Malang and Blitar were divided into 7 and 5 calibration regions respectively, depending upon different geotechnical and hydrological characteristics. The model calibration was performed using all parameters and landslides as reference. The stability index map was produced by SINAMP model as the output which was further reclassified into 3 susceptibility classes and was compared with the existing landslide susceptibility map obtained by weighted overlay method. The model validation was performed using the previously identified landslide locations. The SINMAP model showed better results compared to weighted overlay method. The SINMAP model accuracy can be further improved by incorporating heterogeneous soil properties, spatial and temporal variation of rainfall and highly accurate DEM.

The soil system represents the dominant terrestrial reservoir of carbon in the biosphere. Deforestation, poor land management, and excessive cropping lead to a decrease in soil carbon stocks, but intensive cropping can reverse this trend. We discuss long-term soil organic carbon data from two major rice-growing areas: Java (Indonesia) and South Korea. Soil organic carbon content in the top 15 cm for both countries has increased in recent decades. In South Korea, the top 15 cm of soils store about 31 Tg (1012 g) of carbon (C) with a sequestration rate of 0.3 Tg C per year. In Java, the agricultural topsoils accumulated more than 1.7 Tg C per year over the period 1990-2010. We attribute the increase in measured SOC mainly to increases in above- and below- ground biomass due to fertilization. Good agronomic practices can maintain and increase soil carbon, which ensures soil security to produce food and fiber. © 2012. American Geophysical Union. All Rights Reserved.

Utilization of peatlands for agriculture will be associated with water management and pesticides. Rice cultivation in peatlands become potential contributor to global warming through carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) emission. The study was conducted in tidal peat swamp at Central Kalimantan Province at October 2012 to March 2013. The study aims to evaluate the effect of water management and pesticides on CO2 and CH4 emissions. The study was designed in a split plot design with three water management treatments as the main plot and six pesticide treatments as subplots. The water management treatments: control (A0), saturated water (A1), and intermittent irrigation (A2). The pesticide treatments: control (P0), paraquat during tillage (P1), fenobucarb for every week application (P2), fenobucarb for every two weeks application (P3), difenoconazole for every week application (P4), and difenoconazole for every two weeks application (P5). Fenobucarb which is applied every week (P2) was able to suppress CO2 flux as much as 40%. Intermittent irrigation (A2) could mitigate CO2 flux measured from soil as much as 36%. Suppression mechanism of GHG emissions appear to be associated with the binding mechanism between pesticide and phenolic acids. © 2015 International Society for Southeast Asian Agricultural Sciences.

Commodity development requires site selection which should be established prior to large scale development. The land suitability criteria for cashew are not presently available. The relationship between the biophysical aspects, especially land and soil with commodity productivity, is also not known in depth. The objective of this study is to establish the criteria of land suitability for cashew in Indonesia, based on its production and land characteristics. Cashew plantations in 5 provinces were sampled. The data of production per tree per year were obtained from farmers, while the soil was sampled and analyzed in the laboratory. Age-adjusted cashew production was used as the yield response and plotted against land characteristics. Boundary lines resulting from the scatter of points were described; these lines produced the limits of land suitability criteria. The criteria were established using a projection of the intersection between the boundary line and yield interval. The criteria were also built in accordance with the productivity index of FAO for the internal boundary inside the S (suitable) class and by calculating the break-event point production for the boundary between S (suitable) and N (nonsuitable) order. The main result of this research is land suitability criteria for cashew. Copyright © 2014 Widiatmaka et al.

Long droughts experienced in Indonesia in the past are identified as one of the main factors in the failure of rice production. In this regard, special attention to monitor the condition is encouraged to reduce the damage. Currently, various satellite data and approaches can withdraw valuable information for monitoring and anticipating drought hazards. Two types of drought, Meteorology and Agriculture, have been assessed. During the last 10 years, daily and monthly rainfall data derived from TRMM and GSMaP. MTSAT and AMSR-E data have been analyzed to identify meteorological drought. Agricultural drought has been studied by observing the character of some indices (EVI, VCI, VHI, LST, and NDVI) of sixteen-day and monthly MODIS data at a period of 5 years (2009-2013). Network for data transfer has been built between LAPAN (data provider), ICALRD (implementer), IAARD Cloud Computing, and University of Tokyo (technical supporter). A Web-GIS based Drought Monitoring Information System has been developed to disseminate the information to end users. This paper describes the implementation of remote sensing drought monitoring model and development of Web-GIS and satellite based information system. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.

Research in the soil of the tropics mostly has demonstrated the decline of soil organic carbon (SOC) after conversion of primary forest to plantation and cultivated lands. This paper illustrates the dynamics of SOC on the island of Java, Indonesia, from 1930 to 2010. We used 2002 soil profile observations containing organic carbon (C) analysis in the topsoil, which were collected by the Indonesian Center for Agricultural Land Resources Research & Development from 1923 to 2007. Results show the obvious decline of SOC values from around 2% in 1930-1940 to 0.8% in 1960-1970. However, there has been an increase of SOC content since 1970, with a median level of 1.1% in the year 2000. Our analysis suggests that the human influence and agricultural practices on SOC in Java have been a stronger influence than the environmental factors. SOC for the top 10cm has shown a net accumulation rate of 0.2-0.3MgCha-1yr-1 during the period 1990-2000. These findings give rise to optimism for increased soil C sequestration in the tropics. © 2010 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.

This study demonstrated the use of Remote Sensing techniques and Geographic Information System (GJS) for assessing and mapping of soil erosion risk in East Java Province, Indonesia. A digital elevation model (DEM) derived from elevation contours combined with digital data on shuttle Radar Topographic Mappmg-SRTM were used to calculate terrain parameters, such as slope and relief The Landsat Thematic Mapper data were analysed to identify the existing landuse characteristics. The data of soil erosion factors such as soil erodibility, rainfall erosivity, slope steepness, type of landuse and management practices were scored and ranked according to their contribution to soil erosion risk. By means of GIS approach, a "weighted-summation" analyses of multiple input was performed to generate soil erosion risk map. The degree of soil erosion risk of certain areas was indicated by the total score resulting from summation of all soil erosion parameters. To verify the result of analyses, the ground truth and field data collection within representative sample areas were conducted. The results show that the degree of erosion risk was strongly related to the degree of rainfall erosivity. soil erodibility and slope steepness. It was found that about 43.1% of the total areas were susceptible to erosion, ranging from moderate to high, and that 48, 6% of the intensive cultivated land were threatened by Soil erosion. Agricultural production sustainability of sloping lands is strongly depended on the farm level management practices, such as by applied terracing, contour ploughing, strip cropping, etc. © Geoinformatics International.

The Remote sensing-based Information and Insurance for irrigated rice crops implemented in Indonesia in collaboration with International Rice Research Institute starting in the late of 2012, aims to reduce vulnerability of smallholders (farmers) engaged in rice production through the use of remote sensing technology.The characteristics of rice fields in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) of Cosmo Skymed (Csk) images were studied over an area in Subang-Kerawang area, West Java, Indonesia. The possibilities of identification and discrimination of rice crops at any different planting date are explored Using X band. The goal of this project is to increase rice production in the long run by allowing better access to information about the actual growth status of rice crops and the forecasted yields; thus, leading to better land and resources management by farmers. Likewise, the information generated from remote sensing technology will be used for crop insurance. Copyright© (2013) by the Asian Association on Remote Sensing.
