Bio and organic fertilizers are currently still less attractive to farmers because of their slower effect compared to chemical fertilizers, even though organic fertilizers are an important element in sustainable agriculture in Indonesia. Fertilizer production risk is a business component that must be considered for business sustainability, including raw materials, production processes, production tools and machinery as well as human resources. This study identifies the causes of provibio fertilizer production risks, compiles provibio fertilizer production risk ratings for business sustainability and develops strategies to prevent the occurrence of provibio fertilizer production risks. The method used is descriptive with Failure Mode and Effect Analysis or FMEA by looking for the Risk Priority Number (RPN) indeks. The results of the study identify production risk factors, namely production raw materials, production processes, production tools and machinery and human resources. After data processing, the highest value of production risk was found, namely in quality control with RPN 60, meaning that quality control is the main factor or risk priority because there are still damaged products due to fermentation in bottles as much as 3-5% and damage due to shipping on average by 10-15%, The next factor is damage caused by production equipment and machinery with RPN 45 where supervision has not
been intensive on production equipment and machinery and the life of storage equipment with RPN 12 means that these risks must be a concern for the company. Risk prevention strategies that can be developed for
business continuity are: 1). Carry out quality control regularly for 3 months in the company's laboratory so that the product avoids damage and add materials such as special bubble wrap from the company so that delivery
is safer 2). Conduct long-term research on an ongoing basis to find out how much risk occurs to the shelf life of production equipment and machinery.
