Sugiyanto, Lintar Brillian Pintakami

Abstract

The present study is focused on (1) identifying the consumed food elements in an attempt to fulfil ideal food consumption pattern for coffee farmers, (2) describing the accompaniment level of agricultural extension workers, (3) analyzing the correlation between accompaniment level of agricultural extension and the food consumption pattern of coffee farmers in achieving energy adequacy ratio (EAR), (4) analyzing the correlation between accompaniment level of agricultural extension and the food consumption pattern of coffee farmers in achieving protein adequacy ratio (PAR), (5) analyzing the influencing factors of food consumption pattern of coffee farmers. This study was a quantitative study using the 7x24-hour food recall method and Likert scale to measure the accompaniment role of agricultural extension. Rank Spearman correlation analysis and multiple linear regression analysis were used to analyze the influencing factors of the consumption patterns of coffee farmers. The food consumption pattern was measured from energy/protein adequacy ratios and the quality based on the aspect that can be known from the hope food pattern score (HFP).Results demonstrated rice is the main food element, while tofu and tempeh are the main side dish consumed by coffee farmers in Dampit Subdistrict. The average EAR and PAR reached 1,643.42 kcal/capita/day and 52.54 grams/capita/day. The results implied that the ratio was below standard. Moreover, the uneven accompaniment role of in food consumption pattern caused no relationship except the role of educators toward EAR. Last, the influencing factors of EAR were the number of family members, expenditure on food, and the frequency of eating, while those that affect the actual PAR were the number of family members and the farming experience.
