Abstract: This profitability assessment is an early effort to generate baseline information for the Agroforestry and Forestry in Sulawesi: Linking Knowledge with Action project the ‘AgFor project’ , for implementation in two provinces, South Sulawesi and Southeast Sulawesi. The study collected information on existing farming systems and estimated profitability for each land use. The profitability indicators used in the study are: net present value NPV , equivalent annuity and return to labour. Our estimation shows that in South Sulawesi the most profitable land-use system using the annual equity measure was clove gardens, followed by coconut-cacao mixed-gardens and coconutgardens. Timber-garden systems generated the highest return to labour of the other land uses, while the coconut used for sugar system generated the lowest USD 6 per day . In Southeast Sulawesi, the most profitable land-use system using the annual equity measure was timber-gardens teak , followed by pepper monoculture, and patchouli monoculture. Timber-gardens teak generated the highest return to labour of the others, while the cacao monoculture system generated the lowest USD 10 per day
