Laelatul Farhanah, Sucihatiningsih Dian Wisika Prajanti

Various facilities have not been optimally utilized due to their functions as there are only limited parties aware upon this program. Developing agropolitan areas through superior horticultural commodities development has not increased farmers’ exchange rate. Gaps between planning and implementation in developing agropolitan areas encourage a research with the goal of strategies in developing agropolitan areas in Rojonoto of Wonosobo district. Type of this research is a quantitative description. Primary and secondary data are used. The primary data are taken from 18 key-person agropolitan stakeholders.
