The policy of subsidized fertilizer distribution where fertilizer is distributed through several lines goes from the distribution of subsidized fertilizer from the plant manufacturer (Line I). Factory as a manufacturer implements the distribution of subsidized fertilizer to manufacturer warehouses in the provincial capital area and fertilizer packaging unit (Line II), the manufacturer distributes subsidized fertilizer to manufacturer and/or distributor wharehouses in regency/city designated or specified by the manufacturer (Line III) and carries out transportation up to warehouse or retail kiosk locations in the area of districts and/or villages designated or specified by the distributor (Line IV). This research aimed to describe the implementation of subsidized fertilizer distribution in Line IV Ajung Village, District of Ajung, Jember Regency and to identify the inhibiting factors of subsidized fertilizer distribution in Line IV Ajung Village, District of Ajung. The research used descriptive design. The research location was in Ajung Village, District of Ajung, Jember Regency. The results showed that the implementation of subsidized fertilizer distribution was in several stages: first, socialization of the fertilizer distribution was done in several chances in forums, meetings, both formal and informal with a number of parties involved in the fertilizer distribution;. second, the preparation of RDKK (Definitive Plan of Group Needs) which contains name of members, land area based on SPPT (Land Tax), the amount of fertilizer needed by farmers.The inhibiting factors in the subsidized fertilizer distribution, among others: (1) the existence of tenants who could purchase subsidized fertilizer in Ajung Village, District of Ajung by connection in farmers' groups; (2) there was still a personal interest for profit in selling subsidized fertilizer; (3) the existence of purchasers from other groups that could buy kiosks which were not in their responsibility; (4) lack of trust of farmers to farmer groups; and (5) there were still farmers in the delivery of subsidized fertilizer during the growing season who did not comply with the recommended balanced fertilizer set by the government.The essence of the quota of the subsidized urea fertilizer in accordance with RDKK is the sufficiency of the needs of subsidized fertilizer for farmers. Thus, it is an obligation for the Government of Jember Regency to solve the problems in order that farmers are no longer charged with the fertilizer prices above HET (the highest retail price).
