Therefore, the study was done to analyze agricultural landscape aesthetic quality with various vertical, structure of agriculture's commodity. This research utilized experimental method with combining various agricultural commodity stands through computerized simulation, the aesthetic quality was measured with Scenic Beauty Estimation (SBE) method. The main parameter is agricultural commodity height level; consist four variable; lowest, lower, upper, highest. The measurement was done for good agricultural landscape whether with single commodity or composite commodity. The control landscape is the landscape with open field without plant commodity. The research found that the agricultural landscape aesthetic quality was affected by the commodity vertical structure. Agriculture landscape with single commodity show the highest point (SBE =136) for the lowest level and the control landscape without plant show the lowest aesthetic quality.
