Sustainable agriculture production is a key on achieving food consumption adequacy in developing country but many farmers should struggle more in fulfilling production sustainability whilst keeping on with the economical target. The research was endeavored to seek a viable application on achieving agricultural sustainability and recognizing farmers and community biggest obstacles such as energy by turning agricultural waste such as corn cob and rice husk into bio briquettes. The temperature, caloric value, the ash content, CO, CO and HC were evaluated, result concludes that the briquette might be included on promoting the sustainability and uphold both energy and food safety on adaptability in reducing the negative of climate change impact. Further research need to increase on its quality and economically value. Previous data on rice husk and corn cob briquette has been investigated in developing country and documented but was met with data shortage especially on the concept of making money through turning agricultural waste into energy. The research will benefit in opening possibilities for the farmers by making money from turning waste into energy, increasing agricultural product added value thus increasing annual income. Better income will trigger farmers to plant rice and maize and reduce dependency on import. The results show that the composition of the rice husk and corn cub might be possible to be used on suited small scaled and household industry .
