imperfect, so that the remains of organic matter such as litter, roots. The land in the Kalampangan
Village is a wetland with a layer of peat composed of organic material with a high C content that
exceeds carbon content in the terrestrial ecosystem. The aim of the study is to analyze the perceptions
of vegetable farmers towards the development of sustainable peatland agriculture. The study
