THE EFFECT OF LAND AREA AND ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE ON RICE PRODUCTION IN INCREASING GROSS REGIONAL DOMESTIC INCOME (GRDP) IN CENTRAL JAVA PROVINCE
The purpose of this research is as one of the efforts to realize the Spatial Plan for the Province of Central Java in terms of the development of food-agriculture-based rural areas that require the support of adequate facilities and infrastructure, including support for the feasibility of road infrastructure, irrigation, and so on. This type of research is quantitative, that is, this research method is used to examine certain populations or samples, and gathering power using research instruments, data analysis is quantitative/statistical, with the aim of testing the hypotheses that have been set. The research results which state that land area has a significant effect on rice production is in line with several opinions which state that the agricultural production function can function properly if there are factors that influence production. There are several factors that affect production in agriculture, especially for rice commodities, one of which is the area of agricultural land. Based on the previous explanation, the following conclusions can be drawn. First, land area has a significant influence on rice production in Central Java Province. Second, road infrastructure has no significant influence on rice production in Central Java Province. Third, land area has no significant effect on Gross Regional Domestic Product (GRDP) in Central Java Province. Fourth, road infrastructure also does not have a significant effect on GRDP in Central Java Province. Fifth, rice production does not have a significant effect on GRDP in Central Java Province. Sixth, rice production does not have a significant effect as a mediator between land area and GRDP in Central Java Province. Seventh, rice production also does not have a significant influence as a mediator between road infrastructure and GRDP in Central Java Province.
