چکیده:

There are about to 60 km length and 1 to 1.5 km wide or about to 6000 ha of coastal land in YSR and has great potential to be developed as agribusiness area. By respecting to that phenomenon, in the early of 90’s decade, several farmers who live in coastal area of Kulon Progo Regency of YSP developed some irrigated lands in these coastal sandy soil area. This area is only about to 100 to 200 m away from seashore. Development of this irrigated land was begun when farmers found that shallow groundwater has a good quality even to be used as a drinking water. Mostly, farmers use a small individual portable pump to tap the groundwater. Location of YSP is shown in Figure 1 in the Appencices.
Actually, most of farmers who developed the coastal irrigated land have another surface irrigated land nearby. However, since that surface irrigated lands are located in downstream part of irrigation system and have relatively flat topography, most of them are strongly influenced by flood during wet season and vulnerable to water shortage in dry season. By developing this coastal area, hopefully, farmers still have another
opportunity to get some benefit of harvested land when these both problems occurred. When farmers noticed that development of irrigated coastal area give good opportunity, then they develop this irrigated coastal area very intensively and extensively. Following that phenomena farmers in Bantul area, the near by regency of Kulon Progo also developed their coastal irrigated land in the late of 1990’s. Even this phenomenon gave some opportunities in developing economic impact to regional development but it was worried that it will create some negative impacts to the environment in the region. The coming up of intrusion is one possibility on that. Respecting to all of these phenomenon then the Provincial Government of YSP provide some supports to farmers relating to agricultural development of the coastal area in both Kulon Progo and Bantul regencies, respectively. This paper aims to discuss the process of delivery process of supports of Provincial Government to farmers.
