  • Abstract : Finance can be accessed from many sources of finance, for instance from government. One of the forms of finance provided by government in Indonesia is in-kind finance such as seeds, fertilizer and harvesting tools. The objective of this study is to analyse the agricultural production related to access to in-kind finance from government. Survey method was used to collect data especially from fifty banana farmers in Cianjur District in 2017. The collected data were analysed using independent t-test. The results showed that access to in-kind finance from the government had helped farmers in growing bananas. Having access to in-kind finance from the government, farmers have higher production of bananas compared to the farmers who did not have access to similar in-kind financing. This study suggests the need to enhance access to in-kind finance from Indonesian government for farmers. To increase the opportunities for farmers to obtain the in-kind finance from the government, this study further suggests among others, to encourage farmers take part in the membership of farmers' group.
