Abstract

Farmers own and use hand tools in paddy farming. Although they are not always purchased in every planting season, hand tools’ depreciation is still considered a cost. This study’s objectives were to calculate and identify the factors affecting the variation of depreciation costs among paddy households. This study was conducted in Subdistricts of Tenggarong Seberang, Loa Janan, Muara Muntai, Babulu, Penajam, Waru, South Bontang, and North Bontang, Province of East Kalimantan, Indonesia. Data collection was conducted by interviewing 380 respondents. Data were analyzed to calculate the depreciation costs of hand tools, and the descriptive analysis was applied to identify the factors affecting variation. Total depreciation costs of hand tools were IDR141,166.66 ha-1 planting season (ps)-1 in paddy farming in East Kalimantan in 2014 (1.69% of production costs). The variation is mainly due to the number of hand tools used, the buying price, and the technical period.
