A way to restore the fertility of rice fields is through improving soil structure and microbes by using organic fertilizer derived from livestock waste. Therefore it is necessary to implement an Integrated Farming System (IFS) particularly rice and cattle. The study aimed to analyze the determinants of farmers’ decisions in adopting IFS of rice in Bengkulu Province, Indonesia. This research applied a survey method, which was conducted in Seluma and Rejang Lebong Regencies, Bengkulu Province, Indonesia. The data included primary and secondary and analyzed with the use of Multinomial Logistic Regression. The results indicated that simultaneously all the predictor variables had a significant effect on the response variable, while the income, land area, number of cattle and farmers’ perceptions had a very significant effect on the adoption of the integration system while the variable costs of production, farming experience and labor did not have a significant effect on the decision to adopt a rice and cattle integration system.
Key words: Farmer perception / organic fertilizer / plant crop system
