As an emerging economic sector, agriculture in the Province of Bangka Belitung has less contribution both in terms of production and contribution towards farmer’s income. Therefore, the implementation of sustainable agriculture by integrating crops and livestock is argued to increase the competitiveness of agricultural products and farmer’s income. Based on local resources, one of the sustainable agricultural applications that can be implemented in Bangka Belitung is bio-industrial agriculture by integrating oil palm, citronella, and cattle farming to optimize marginal land. The concept of the bio-industrial agriculture model in this project contained several aspects i.e., environmentally friendly, effective and efficient, competitive, and profitable. The model implemented in the farmer groups increased farmer’s income from oil palm plantations and beef cattle. This was due to an increase in the productivity of Bali cattle with an average daily gain (ADG) of 0.22 kg to 0.56 kg, also an increase in the production of fresh fruit bunches (FFB) of oil palm. In general, the model of oil palm-cattle integration is suitable for sustainable agricultural development in Bangka Belitung.
