The sweetness of sugar is not always as sweet as the fate of sugarcane farmers. The high price of sugar does not necessarily make the farmers also get high income. Most of our sugarcane farmers adhere to the pattern of sugarcane planting in partnership with a sugar factory. The price of sugarcane is determined by the factory based on its yield, the higher the yield, the higher the price of sugarcane. Most of sugarcane farmers in Keling village, Kepung sub-district, Kediri district, apply a partnership pattern with the factory. This partnership pattern is in the form of revenue sharing from processed sugarcane. The average percentage for the results is 70-30, which means that from the results of processing sugarcane, farmers get 70% and 30% factory. Theoretically, the partnership pattern greatly benefits sugarcane farmers. However, it turns out that there are still many farmers who have not enjoyed the benefits of this pattern. Meanwhile, several sugarcane farmers in the Kandat sub-district of Kediri district, many of which have processed their own sugar into sugar. According to them, by processing their own sugar, instead of increasing income, they can also open jobs for local residents and the waste can be used as fuel and compost. As a consequence, we will try to provide training in making sugarcane for sugarcane farmers in Keling village so that they can process their own sugarcane to increases their income, and as a model is sugarcane farmers in Kandat sub-district
