The purpose of this research is to analyze the financial feasibility of shallot farming development based on NPV (Net Present Value), Net B/C (benefit/cost), IRR (Internal Rate Return), and payback period criteria. The financial feasibility analysis through the calculation of cost and benefit components obtained from shallot business and investment criteria to determine the level of feasibility in quantitative terms. The result showed that NPV is IDR. 16,747,507.38, Net B/C 1.45, IRR for 4 period is 66.03% and payback period is 3.58.
