    Abstract

    Livestock is a subsector that has roles in supporting the economy in Lolayan Subdistrict. In this area, cattle are developed by utilizing land under coconut trees. The problem is the extent to which coconut plantation potentials can support cattle development in this Subdistrict. The research objective is to analyze the carrying capacity of coconutcattle agroecosystem. Tonayan and Bakan villages were determined purposively, as the villages having the most cattle. The number of respondents were 52 farmers (32 farmers in Tonayan village and 20 farmers in Bakan village). The data were analyzed using the analysis of Effective Livestock Development Potential and Land Carrying Capacity Index (IDD). Results of this research indicates that the Maximum Potential of Land Resources (PMSL) are 2728.45 Animal Unit (AU). The capacity of cattle population increase based on land resources is 1551.45 AU. The maximum potential based on farmer household heads is I 8669 AU and cattle population increase based on farmer household heads of is 17 492. The IDD value is 2.03. Based on the research findings, the land under coconut trees in the Lolayan Subdistrict can still be optimized as a source of forage accompanied by the increase in cattle population. Optimization can be conducted by coconut cattle integration approach which is environmentally friendly and sustainable
