Abstract

The land in Central Sulawesi, particularly in Sigi Regency, is still quite large to cultivate shallots. With suitable rainfall and temperature as well as adequate facilities and infrastructure, the variety of shallots planted by farmers in Sigi Regency is Lembah Palu variety (local). Lembah Palu shallots are suitable to be processed as fried shallots because, in addition to having distinctive aroma and taste, they remain dry/crispy although stored for a long time. With such potential, it is necessary to make efforts to increase Lembah Palu shallot production. In fact, low production and quality of farm yields have made it difficult to gain maximum profits. In addition to considering the profits to gain, farmers also pay attention to any potential farm risks. (A high production risk will affect farmers’ behavior in decision making). This study aimed to reveal farmers’ behavior towards Lembah Palu shallot farm risks. The study was conducted in February to May 2018 at the center of Lembah Palu shallot production in Sigi Regency. The data analysis was done using a quantitative descriptive approach. Production risk was analyzed using multiple linear regressions with Cobb-Douglas production function as well as Just and Pope production function; Farmers’ behavior was analyzed using Khumbakar mathematical model. The results showed that 69.68% of the behavior of Lembah Palu shallot farmers in Sigi Regency was risk averse and 30.32% as risk takers. Recommendation. In order to gain higher yields, farmers should be risk takers.
