The main target of Integrated Crop Management Farmer Field School (ICM-FFS) development is to boost rice production in order to accelerate the achievement of sustainable rice self-sufficient in Indonesia. Nevertheless, aside from its achievements, as an approach it was not fully effectual for farmers. The study aims at analyzing factors influencing the adoption of ICM-FFS at swampy lands using survey and stratified random sampling approaches with involving total respondents of 159 people. Analysis the adoption factors were estimated by logistic regression model. Variables significantly affected the level of improvement opportunities of adoption were age, education, distance to agricultural technology information sources, distance to the meeting place and productivity. Among these variables, productivity level was as the main consideration of the farmers to adopt the ICM-FFS program. Therefore, the continuously effort to improve rice productivity should be taken into account as the priority to encourage more farmers to adopt this program. The opportunities for farmers to adopt this program are also expected to be even wider when efforts to increase productivity are also accompanied by efforts to improve quality and increase efficiency of inputs uses.
