The business sustainability of rice seed breeding in the breeder groups is very important to provide qualified rice seeds, improve the farmer's income and welfare, and become the indicator of the success of the program. The study aimed to analyze the level of sustainability of the rice seed breeding business and the influence of the level of support from the government, private sectors and community leaders on the level of sustainability of the business. Data were collected from 112 farmers in Majalengka from December 2020 to January 2021. The data were analyzed by Partial Least Square (PLS-Path Modeling) using SmartPLS3. The results showed that the sustainability level of the rice seed breeding business in the aspect of production and business profits was included in the high category. Production and profits of rice seed breeding business are higher than consumption rice farming. The level of private support and community leaders have a significant effect on the sustainability level of the rice seed breeding business. The government provides farmer protection programs, but the farmers have not used them optimally. The involvement of community leaders can increase the sustainability of the breeding business in terms of production, market guarantee and business profits.
