Abstract: The allocation of labor for farmers affects the welfare of farmer households. Decent Living Needs (KHL) for the total farmer family is the standard farmer family needs that must be fulfilled by the farmer every month. The total decent living needs of a farming family are strongly influenced by the number of members of the farming family and the calorie needs of each family member which can be grouped based on age criteria. The allocation of labor for farmers in rice - monoculture and rice - corn farming activities affects the welfare of farmer households. There is a lot of free time that farmers have in monoculture and maize rice farming activities that should be optimized by farmers, based on the results of the research, the results show that the level of farmers' welfare in rice-based farming activities is still not as prosperous because the total family income earned by farmers is still less than the need for decent living (KHL) needed by farmers every month so that they are still experiencing shortages every month.
Keywords: allocation of labor, decent living needs, rice-based farming
