Rows of rice farmers who have lost their right to freedom, caught up in the political colonization of the business of high capital holders. The welfare of farmers will be achieved if each farmer can meet the target price of rice trees that end up in the desired Net Farm Income (NFI). This will also encourage the creation of agricultural areas as pillars of development, especially rural areas. Bone Bolango Regency is one of the strategic areas that are very appropriate for the development of Agricultural Areas in Gorontalo Province, because there are several agricultural products that are characteristic of such as corn, fruit and vegetables. So this research is considered necessary to understand the presence of "power" in the maelstrom of farmers, especially rice farmers and what is behind the optimal income and welfare of farmers. This research uses a qualitative approach with a critical ethnometodological paradigm by collecting the data needed from key informants consisting of farmers, communities and governments in developing agricultural products. This research found that the setting of selling prices at the farmer level is not effective because the selling price is not in accordance with what is set by the Government Purchase Price (HPP) which is for the purchase of dry grain harvest prices with a water content quality of 25% and empty / dirt content of 10% is Rp. 4,200 / Kilogram or Rp. 4,250 / Kilogram in milling, for water content quality of 14% and vacuum / dirt 3% is Rp. 5,250 / kilogram or Rp. 5,300 / kilogram in milling, for the highest water content quality 14%, broken grains are highest 20%, the highest level of 2% and the highest sosoh degrees rp. 8,300 in the Perum BULOG Warehouse. The results showed that the still ineffectiveness of the policies that have been carried out by the government due to the factor that in determining the price of traders in this case set the purchase price in accordance with their wishes without regard to the losses experienced by farmers.
