The high demand for tobacco exports, is an attraction for farmers to cultivate this one estate crop. However, this demand is very limited by the use of land that is currently increasingly difficult. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent of influence of land area on tobacco production, and the minimum size of land area suitable for use in tobacco farming.
The method used in this research is a case study, with samples taken from all farmers who carry out tobacco farming as many as 19 people. The data analysis design used to determine the effect of land area on tobacco production used simple regression analysis, and to find out the area of drinking land was carried out through a break-even concept approach.
The results showed that: 1) the area of land used greatly affected the production of tobacco produced, and 2) The area of drinking land used for an average land area of 2.43 hectares of land used by farmers was 0.18 hectares with the assumption of the use of factors ceteris paribus production.
