The exploration phase describes: (1) the existing English textbook used at agriculture faculty and (2) the students’ needs toward the content of English teaching. Meanwhile, the Product Development phase informs: (1) the description of theme-based textbook, (2) the students’ need upon the textbook, (3) the result of the product tryout, and (4) the final product of theme-based textbook.

The book is not composed based on agriculture students’ need. The materials, situations, topics, and vocabularies of the book provide general English which are not suited to the teaching and learning situation. The activities in reading, listening, speaking, and writing occur in daily situation and there is no one activity conducted in agriculture context. This book is not printed locally in Indonesia. It makes it difficult to find in general bookstore.
The theme-based textbook was developed by considering several aspects namely; (1) objectives and approaches; (2) design and organization; (3) language content;  (4)  language  skills;  (5)  topics  and  (6)  methodology.  The  resulted prototype was validated and reviewed by the content  expert  and  instructional expert. The prototype was tried-out and revised to get the feasible product. The result of observation and Focus Group Discussion involving the researcher, the lecturer, the expert  and the students were used  to  evaluate and  to  revise the prototype into the final product of theme-based textbook. After going through three trials, it could be concluded that the prototype is feasible to be applied as theme-based textbook for agriculture students.
