Strategic Role of Input Access in Poverty Reduction of Robusta Coffee Farmers
Abstract: In farming, there are coffee farmers who live below the poverty line due to lack of income because farmers are faced with difficulties in gaining access to agricultural management in the form of inputs such as seeds, fertilizers, limited land, and labor. This study aims to analyze the role of input access in increasing income (decreasing poverty) of robusta coffee farmers. The results showed that the percentage of farmers living under the poverty line was 49 % with a poverty gap index of 0.05. Significantly, land input access (0.564) affected the increase in income (decreasing poverty) of robusta coffee farmers.
Keywords: Access to input, poverty reduction, robusta coffee farmers
