Keragaman Waktu Tanam Tanaman Padi di Pulau Kalimantan
Rice planting time varied among farming sites. This research was aimed to study the variation in planting time especially
in rainy season in Kalimantan. ‘Planting time’ was deterimined using assumption as the time when 8% of paddy fields in
a sub district had been planted. Analysis was done by using mean ten-days of planting area of each sub-district during the
period of 2000 to 2009 that was obtained from Statistics Indonesia. The result showed that the farmers in Kalimantan started
planting rice during the first and second ten-days of September each year. Peak time of rice planting varied among provinces,
i.e., on October II/III (West Kalimantan), January I/II and June II/III (East Kalimantan), and March III/April I (South and
Central Kalimantan). Data from this research could be used to calculate planting management at national level.
