Abstract—The land of Dieng Plateau managed by the farmers
in not sustainable way and now it’s faced environmental
problems, mainly erosion. This research aim to analyse the
impact of potato farm that caused environmental degradation
and the implementation of carica agroforestry in Dieng Plateau
to reduce degradation. The method of this research is analysing
qualitative and quantitative data from observation, interview,
and literatures study. The result of this research proven that the
rate of erosion can be reduced by the using of agroforestry, the
erosion rate decrease from 463.86 tonnes/hectares/year to be
115.96 tonnes / hectares / year (estimation data by using USLE
formula). The using of agroforestry had improved the people’s
welfare. Agroforestry brings more benefit than potatoes
monoculture system. This project is very sustainable and will
not make any compromising for the Dieng’s future generation.
Index Terms—Dieng Plateau, potato farm, environmental degradation, carica agroforestry.
