Abstract

This study aims to analyze the sustainability index of each dimension of ecology, economy, social, and technology as well as identify sensitive attributes that determine the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar. The rapid appraisal for program modified from rapid appraisal for fisheries program using the multidimensional scaling (MDS) method was used as the analytical instrument. MDS ordination analysis results showed the sustainability index value of each dimension, namely ecology (37.30), economic (40.90), social (31.74), and technology (34.33) were categorized as less sustainable with an average index value of all dimensions was 36.07. The leverage analysis visualizes that 9 out of 17 attributes has shown to be sensitive attributes that affect the business sustainability of ornamental plant in Makassar, namely frequency of crop waste management, water sources, utilization of plant waste, market scale, profitability, business land status, company registration certificate, use of modern technology, and frequency of environmentally friendly technology usage. Government should provide special business zones for ornamental plant so that all ornamental plant farmer in Makassar can be grouped into one zone. Furthermore, it can increase gross regional domestic product, employment opportunities, and opening up opportunities of other industrial sectors growth.

Introduction

Ornamental plants are one of the agribusiness commodities that have excellent development prospects in Indonesia. The contribution of ornamental plants in the country’s development continues to increase every year, for example, an increase in gross domestic product (GDP), the value of exports, employment, and farmer exchange rates (FER), as well as an improvement of environmental aesthetics. Data from the Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia shows that the increase in the export value of floriculture products occurred in 2018, amounting to USD 18.6 million while the previous year was USD 17.6 million (Ministry of Trade of Indonesia Republic, 2019MINISTRY OF TRADE. Perkembangan ekspor nonmigas (sector) periode 2015-2020. 2019. Available at: <Available at: http://statistik.kemendag.go.id/growth-of-non-oil-and-gas-export-sectoral > Accessed on: Jan 20th, 2020.
http://statistik.kemendag.go.id/growth-o...
). This condition is an illustration of ornamental plant potentials in Indonesia. Thus, it is expected that the cultivation of ornamental plants can develop more broadly and evenly. Based on the data, the most exported ornamental plants were chrysanthemums, roses, and orchids.

National ornamental plant production data in 2018 showed a large number of 935,791,268 trees while the ornamental plant production data in South Sulawesi province was only 17,873,513 trees (Indonesian Statistics, 2018INDONESIAN STATISTICS. Statistik tanaman hias Indonesia 2018. Jakarta: Indonesian Statistics, 2018. 91p.). The third-largest contributing area of ornamental plant production in the South Sulawesi province is Makassar City, contributing to 614,166 ornamental plant production in 2018 (Makassar City Fisheries and Agriculture Service, 2018MAKASSAR CITY FISHERIES AND AGRICULTURE SERVICE. Data luas tanam, luas panen, dan produksi komoditas tanaman hias tahun 2018 di Kota Makassar. Makassar: Horticulture Report. Makassar City Fisheries and Agriculture Service, 2018. ). Nowadays, some problems arose in the development of ornamental plant farming in Makassar City related to the sustainability of ornamental plant farming seen from the ecology, economic, social, and technological dimensions.

Most of the ornamental plant farmers who cultivate and establish their ornamental plant business in areas that are not under the growing capacity of plants and the carrying capacity of their land located along the shoreline. If this happens continuously without considering the ecology dimension, it might have an impact on the optimization of ornamental plant production and the degradation of the surrounding environment. Thus, the ecology dimension is one of the sustainability issues of ornamental plant farming in Makassar. Additionally, most of the ornamental plant farmers in Makassar did not know the profit points of their business. Some farmers admitted that they only run their business without calculating and considering how much profit they got. That was an example of the economic dimension that became the problem of the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar.

The number of ornamental plant businesses established and developed in Makassar did not guarantee the status of the occupied land was in legal status. Most of the ornamental plant farmers occupied illegal land. Hence, it is certainly against social rules and becomes one of the study problems in the social dimension of the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar. On the other hand, ornamental plant farmers in Makassar were generally still constrained by the use of modern technology. One of the uses of modern technology that was not relied upon yet by every ornamental plant farmer in Makassar is information and communication technology. Particularly in the field of services and marketing, every farmer naturally needs information and communication to increase the opportunity of ornamental plant purchases and to be easily accessible to the wider community. Based on this, the technological dimension is also one of the problems of ornamental plant farming sustainability in Makassar.

Considering the four problems elaborated above, it is necessary to conduct this study on the analysis of the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar to understand the concept of ideal farm sustainability. The purpose of this study was to analyze the sustainability index of each dimension of ecology, economy, social, and technology and to identify the sensitive attributes that determine the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar.

Materials and Methods

Research design

This study was conducted in Makassar, South Sulawesi, from February to March 2020. The sampling technique used in this study was the simple random sampling technique, where this technique is enabling the entire population to have the same opportunity to be chosen (Nasution, 2009NASUTION, S. Metode penelitian: Penelitian ilmiah. Jakarta: Bumi Aksara, 2009. 156p.). The sample of this study was ornamental plant farmers in Makassar, with a total of 182 ornamental plant farmers. The sample was determined through the Taro Yamane’s formula as follows (Riduwan, 2013RIDUWAN. Metode & teknik menyusun tesis. Bandung: Alfabeta, 2013. 376p.):

n = N N d 2 + 1 (1)

Description:

n = number of samples

N = total population (number of ornamental plant farmers in Makassar)

d2 = precision (set at 20% with a confidence level of 95 %)n = 21.98 30 people

Based on the above formula, the sample of this study was 30 farmers spread in several districts in Makassar. Both primary and secondary data were analyzed in this study. Primary data sources were obtained through field observations and respondents’ interviews. Meanwhile, the secondary data sources obtained through the results of previous studies, literature, and documents from various agencies related to this study. Data were collected in the form of attributes related to four dimensions of sustainability, namely ecology, economic, social, and technology.

Data analysis

The analyze method for identifying the farming characteristics in Makassar city was descriptive analyses. Descriptive analysis aims to change the raw data set into a form that is easy to describe and understand, thus give the conclusion. An index assessment and business sustainability status can be assessed through multidimensional scaling (MDS) analysis. MDS analysis is a method used to build relationships with low-dimensional configurations to represent objects in high-dimensional space (Chiu and Pan, 2014CHIU, D.Y.; PAN, Y.C. Topic knowledge map and knowledge structure constructions genetic algorithm, information retrieval, and multidimensional scaling method. Knowledge-Based Systems, v.67, p.412-428, 2014.; Ding and Kim, 2018DING, C.; KIM, S-K. Multidimensional Scaling. In: HANCOCK, G.R.; STAPLETON, L.M.; MUELLER, R.O. The Reviewer’s guide to quantitative methods in the social sciences, 2ed. New York: Routledge, 2018. p.290-291.). In this study, MDS technique was carried out through the rapid appraisal for floriculture (RAP-FCT) program. RAP-FCT is a modification of the rapid appraisal for fisheries (RAP-FISH) program developed by the University of British Columbia in measuring the sustainability of the fisheries sector, which consisted of MDS ordination analysis, Monte Carlo analysis, and Leverage analysis. The analysis technique utilized in the MDS method is a multivariate statistical analysis by transforming each dimension and multidimensional sustainability (Suharno et al., 2019SUHARNO; ANWAR, N.; SARASWATI, E. A technique of assessing the status of sustainability of resources. IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, 250, 012080, 2019. ).

The stages of the analysis of the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar were as follows: 1) determining attributes in each dimension (ecology, economic, social, and technology), 2) assessing attributes on each dimension with an ordinal scale in the range of 1 to 4 interpreted from bad to good, 3) analyzing using MDS ordination to get the sustainability index value of ornamental plant farming before categorizing into one of the sustainability categories (status) (Table 1), 4) conducting leverage analysis to determine the sensitive attributes affecting the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar, 5) conducting Monte Carlo analysis to take into account aspects of uncertainty (Kavanagh, 2001KAVANAGH, P. Rapid appraisal of fisheries (Rapfish) Project. Rapfish sofware des eruption (for microsoft excel). Canada: Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia, 2001. ; Pitcher and David, 2001PITCHER, T.J.; DAVID, P.R. A rapid appraisal technique to evaluate the sustainability status of fisheries. Fisheries Research, v.49, p.255-270, 2001.), Monte Carlo analysis was used to evaluate the effect of errors on estimating MDS ordination values as well as in the analysis process conducted at 95% confidence intervals, and 6) doing the normalization test for the feasibility of the model (goodness of fit) using stress (S) and coefficient determination (R2) (Achmad and Witiastuti, 2018ACHMAD, I.N.; WIDIASTUTI, R.S. Underpricing, institutional ownership and liquidity stock of IPO companies in Indonesia. Management Analysis Journal, v.7, p.281-290, 2018. ).

The analysis results were considered quite accurate and can be accounted if the stress value was smaller than 0.25 or 25 percent and the coefficient of determination (R2) was close to 1.00 or 100 percent (Kavanagh and Pitcher, 2004KAVANAGH, P.; PITCHER, T.J. Implementing microsoft excel sofware for fish: A technique for the rapid appraisal of fisheries status. Canada: Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia , 2004. 75p.).

Discussion

Based on the findings of the ecological sustainability, ornamental plant farming in Makassar was categorized as less sustainable, where the sensitive attributes that set the ecological sustainability were the frequency of management of plant waste, water sources, and utilization of plant waste.

Generally, ornamental plant farmers in Makassar was not interested in managing crop waste from their agricultural products. There were some reasons for farmers not to manage crop waste from their agricultural products: 1) Farmers could not manage agricultural waste; 2) Farmers did not have complete tools and materials to manage agricultural waste; 3) Farmers did not have much time to manage agricultural waste. The utilization of agricultural waste is more focused for purposes that are directly related to agricultural activities, bioenergy, or restoration of fertility and soil health.

The sustainability of Indonesian agriculture is highly dependent on the organic material components in the soil. Without recycling the plant residues, soil infertility progression will increase rapidly and can leads to very serious disaster for farmers in the future (Krause and Rotter, 2018KRAUSE, A.; ROTTER, V.S. Recycling improves soil fertility management in smallholdings in Tanzania. Agriculture. v.8, p.31, 2018. ).

The source of water used by every ornamental plant farmer in Makassar was quite diverse, for example, from lakes, wells, and Regional Drinking Water Company. The source of water used by each farmer directly affects the growth of plants and the expenses incurred by every ornamental plant farmer in Makassar.

Therefore, it might have an impact on the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar. Most of the ornamental plant farmers in Makassar did not utilize their agricultural waste. Where in fact, these crop wastes can be traded and reused for their farming needs to reduce the impact of pollution and environmental damage due to the accumulation of plant waste.

Related to the economic sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar that was categorized as less sustainable, two sensitive attributes determined the economic sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar were market scale and profitability. In general, ornamental plant farmers in Makassar only marketed and sold their ornamental plant products on a local market scale. The local market is a market where the marketing area covers only certain areas and generally only offers goods needed by the surrounding community (Illiyyun, 2012ILLIYYUN. Revitalisai pasar tradisional di Kabupaten Babat Lamongan, 2012. Available at: <Available at: http://etheses.uin-malang.ac.id/1251/9/08660026_Bab_4.pdf > Accessed on: Apr 21th, 2020.
http://etheses.uin-malang.ac.id/1251/9/0...
).

Some things that caused the ornamental plant farmers in Makassar were only able to market and sell their ornamental plant products at the local market scale was due to farmer limitations in capital, human, and information resources. A successful business is certainly marked by the level of benefits obtained. However, a small number of ornamental plant farmers in Makassar admitted that the level of benefits obtained was very low and even unprofitable (break-even). The performance of a business can be seen from the level of sales, profit, and return on capital, turnover, and market share achieved (Liu et al., 2021LIU, L.; XU, J.; SHANG, Y. Determining factors of financial performance of agricultural listed companies in China. Custos e Agronegócio, v.16, n.4, p.297-314, 2001. ). Elkington (1999ELKINGTON, J. Cannibals with Forks: The triple bottom line of 21st century business. New Jersey: John Wiley & Son Ltd, 1999. 424p.) also added that business sustainability has to pay attention to Profit, People, and Planet (3P).

Furthermore, the social sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar that was categorized as less sustainable had two sensitive attributes, namely the status of business land and company registration marks.

Most of the ornamental plant farmers in Makassar occupied illegal business land according to the existing law or illegal status. Some farmers had acknowledged that the status of their business land is illegal or unlicensed from landowners. This condition is certainly far from the concept of farming sustainability. Based on the Government Regulation in Law No. 51 of 1960 on the illegal use of land by others, buildings built illegally on state-owned land do not have to be compensated, the land/building must be vacated, and even can be convicted if it is not properly managed. Meanwhile, not all farmers had company registration marks. They assumed that it could burden their finances due to high corporate tax payments while the profits are still low.

The technology sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar was categorized as less sustainable and had two sensitive attributes, namely the use of modern technology and the frequency of using environmentally friendly technology. In general, ornamental plant farmers in Makassar were still lacking in modern technology usages, such as the lack of android mobile phone usage that facilitates their information and communication. According to Yanti et al. (2018YANTI, VA.; AMANAH, S.; MULDJONO, P.; ASNGARI, P. Faktor yang mempengaruhi keberlanjutan usaha mikro kecil menengah di Bandung dan Bogor. Jurnal Pengkajian Pengembangan Teknik, v.21, p.137-148, 2018.), the role of information and communication technology (ICT) is quite important to support the excellence of competitiveness and business sustainability. Meanwhile, the frequency of the use of environmentally friendly technology by most farmers was only done as much as once a month such as organic fertilizer technology usage.

One of the anticipatory measures needed in sustainable agricultural development is to apply environmental management in all agricultural production activities, especially in the field of agricultural product processing and non-agricultural production activities (Fatemi and Rezaei-Moghaddam, 2019FATEMI, M.; REZAEI-MOGHADDAM, K. Multi-criteria evaluation in paradigmatic perspectives of agricultural environmental management. Heliyon, v.5, e01229, 2019.).

The results of the Monte Carlo analysis and the normalization test (goodness of fit) (Table 4) indicate that the low difference in value (<1) between the MDS ordination and the Monte Carlo on each dimension. The difference means that 1) errors in each attribute score were relatively small, 2) the variety of scoring due to difference in opinion was relatively small, 3) the analysis process carried out repeatedly was stable, and 4) data entry errors and lost data could be avoided. This difference also shows that the system studied has a high level of trust (Nurmalina, 2008NURMALINA, R. Analisis indeks dan status keberlanjutan ketersediaan beras di beberapa wilayah Indonesia. Journal Agro Ekonomi, v.26, n.1, p.47-49, 2008.).

If the results of the Monte Carlo analysis do not change significantly or have a small difference in value between the results of the MDS ordination and the Monte Carlo analysis, then it can be concluded that the results of the MDS ordination have overcome the random error (Rosyani et al., 2019ROSYANI; EDISON; ASMADI. Study on sustainability status of smallholder oil palm plantations Jambi Province, Sumatra Indonesia. IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, 314, 012055, 2019. https://doi.org/10.1088/1755-1315/314/1/012055
https://doi.org/10.1088/1755-1315/314/1/...
). The results of this statistical test also show that the RAP-FCT method was good enough to be used as an evaluation tool for the sustainability of ornamental plant farming.

The results of the normalization test for the feasibility of the model (goodness of fit) using the stress value (S) and the coefficient of determination (R2) obtained stress value (S) on each dimension smaller than 0.25 percent (< 25%) and the coefficient of determination (R2) on each dimension approaching the value of 1. It can be concluded that the data were normally distributed. This is reinforced by Kavanagh and Pitcher (2004KAVANAGH, P.; PITCHER, T.J. Implementing microsoft excel sofware for fish: A technique for the rapid appraisal of fisheries status. Canada: Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia , 2004. 75p.) who argued that the results of the analysis are considered quite accurate and can be accounted for if the stress value is less than 0.25 or 25% and the coefficient of determination (R2) approaches the value of 1.0 or 100 percent.

The sustainability index values of each dimension, ecology (37.30), economic (40.90), social (31.74), and technology (34.33) were categorized as less sustainable with the overall dimension index value of 36.07. This lack of sustainability required efforts to prioritize sensitive attributes that can determine the multidimensional sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar. Therefore, from the previous category that was less sustainable, could increase into a sustainable category.

Efforts need to be made in improving the ecological sustainability status of ornamental plant farming in Makassar. They need to 1) increase the frequency of crop waste management every month. Agricultural waste treatment results in addition to improving soil properties and as a source of soil nutrients, also useful in controlling plant diseases; 2) using a good water source to optimize the growth and development of ornamental plants; 3) utilizing crop waste from their farming to be traded and reused for their farming needs to reduce the impact of pollution and environmental damage due to the accumulation of crop waste (Aryantha, 2002ARYANTHA, I.P. Pengembangan system pertanian berkelanjutan, diskusi sehari tentang minimalisasi penggunaan pupuk. Jakarta: Ministry of Research and Technology-BPPT, 2002.; Hossain, et al., 2017HOSSAIN, M.Z.; NIEMSDORFF, P.V.F.U.; HEß, J. Effect of different organic wastes on soil properties and plant growth and yield: A Review. Scientia Agriculturae Bohemica, v.48, p.224-237, 2017. ).

Furthermore, efforts that need to be made in improving the economic sustainability status of ornamental plant farming in Makassar are to increase and expand the market scale from the local market scale to the national market as well as the international market scale. Later on, business profits have to be increased by managing finances appropriately also monitoring and evaluating capital resources at any time.

Meanwhile, the way to improve the social sustainability status of ornamental plant farming in Makassar is to have a legal permit to occupy business land. Thus, the land used must be in legal status and has a company registration to prevent and avoid dishonest business practices. Obligatory to register this company based on law number 3 of 1982 concerning mandatory register of companies mentioned that by registering a company can prevent and avoid the emergence of companies and business entities that are not responsible that might harm honest companies. Moreover, it is also to protect consumers from unsolvable company so their business can be guaranteed.

The way to improve the sustainability status of ornamental plant farming technology in Makassar is by increasing the use of modern technology in helping all types of work carried out by farmers to be more effective and efficient. Adopting new technologies that lead to sustainable is based on the results (Santiteerakul et al.,2020SANTITEERAKUL, S.; SOPADANG, A.; YAIBUATHET TIPPAYAWONG, K.; TAMVIMOL, K. The role of smart technology in sustainable agriculture: A case study of wangree plant factory. Sustainability, v.12, p.4640, 2020. ). If the results are sustainable, then the technology can be used continuously, or discontinued when the technology no longer meets the expectations or upgraded version is available (Adenle et al., 2019ADENLE, A.A.; WEDIGB, K.; AZADIC, H. Sustainable agriculture and food security in Africa: The role of innovative technologies and international organizations. Technology in Society, v.58, p.1-17, 2019.).

Another way to improve the sustainability status of ornamental plant farming technology is by increasing the frequency of use of environmentally friendly technology (Saiz-Rubio and Rovira-Más, 2020SAIZ-RUBIO, V.; ROVIRA-MÁS, F. From smart farming towards agriculture 5.0: A review on crop data management. Agronomy, v.10, p.207, 2020. ).

According to Sulewski et al. (2018SULEWSKI, P. Conditions, scope and economic effects of afforestation of marginal soils on farms in Poland. Problems of Agricultural Economics Zagadnienia Ekonomiki Rolnej, v.1, p.149-169, 2018.) and Purvis et al. (2019PURVIS, B.; MAO, Y.; ROBINSON, D. Three pillars of sustainability: in search of conceptual origins. Sustainability Science, v.14, p.681-695, 2019. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11625-018-0627-5.
https://doi.org/10.1007/s11625-018-0627-...
) to support sustainable agricultural development, they need to balance between equity and environmental aspects in the production, processing, and marketing of agricultural products. Thus, it is emphasized that the use of environmentally friendly technology is highly recommended in agricultural activities from input to output.

Conclusions

The sustainability index values of ornamental plants farming in Makassar in each dimension (ecology, economic, social, and technology) were categorized as less sustainable. Leverage analysis describes nine sensitive attributes involved in determining the sustainability of ornamental plant farming in Makassar, namely the frequency of crop waste management, water sources, utilization of plant waste, market scale, profitability, business land status, signs company list, use of modern technology, and frequency of environmentally friendly technology usage. Therefore, Government support is needed to provide special business zones for ornamental plants in Makassar, so all farmers can be grouped into one zone (area) following the concept of ecological, economic, social, and technological sustainability. More advanced cultivation of ornamental plants in Makassar in the future can contribute an important role for increasing gross regional domestic product (GRDP), employment sources, and increases opportunities for growth in other industrial sectors.
