- cultivation, reinterpretation and regional income
The system of forced cultivation has always been viewed negatively in the history of Indonesia, because as a form of oppression against the people with a mandatory system to plant certain crops that apply in the international market. But in fact the policy can be reinterpreted as a model in the development of agriculture in Indonesia agrarian country today. The problems in this research are: How can Cultivation model be used as a model of current policy in managing agriculture in agrarian country? The methods used in this study are historical methods that include: Collection of sources (heuristics), source criticism (source testing), source / fact interpretation (source analysis), and historiography (research writing). The policy of forced cultivation in the Netherlands Indies as a policy that brings the suffering of the people because the system of forced labor and compulsory plants is the result of the people do not enjoy. But the policy had brought enormous profits to the Dutch East Indies government, as it was able to increase export production, and resulted in the finance of the Dutch Indies government which had previously been a minus surplus. But the advantage was only enjoyed by the power of the Dutch East Indies colonial government and the Dutch government, because the status of the Dutch East Indies was a Dutch colony, so that all the results were fully for the welfare of the mother country of the Netherlands. In an era after Indonesia's independence, policy as forced cultivation may be re-interpreted as a model of policy with mandatory planting model using a new concept called a regional superior product. In making regional superior policy with forced cultivation model, it takes the role of government as policy maker and also its supervision. If the superior product of the region by referring to the model of the forced cultivation policy can run, then the result will be enjoyed by the community as a superior producer of the region, as well as the regional financial income as the original income area
