Agriculture as one of the critical sectors for Indonesia's economic growth has not contributed to the welfare of farmers. The fundamental problem of low farmer's income related to their spirit entrepreneurship in farming. This article describes the entrepreneurship passion of farmer and its relation to flood and avalanche risk protection efforts.

This study used the descriptive quantitative approach with a total sample of 70 farmers who manage the land on the banks of the river. There are three kinds of analysis tools: descriptive quantitative, comparative analysis of t-test method and correlation analysis by ANOVA test. The results show that the entrepreneurship passion of farmers is focused on production cost, income, and asset protection. While the spirit of the farmers for risk protection is still low. As a result, river bank management is considered less support for their entrepreneurship passion. The research also resulted that the characteristic of farmers does not affect the entrepreneurship passion.
