Increasing the national soybean production had been attempted through various ways, among others was the implementation of an Integrated Crop Management (ICM), transferred to farmers through Field School (FS). There were 10 components on the soybean ICM technology, consisting of mandatory and optional components. This study was aimed to analyze factors influencing the rate of ICM adoption. The research was carried out in Sopeng and Bone District, South Sulawesi in 2015. Data was collected
... was collected through a survey involving 30 soybean farmers selected at a simple random manner. Data analysis used a binary logistic regression approach, where the adoption gap was the dependent variables and the 12 variables influencing the adoption were independent variables, namely: age of farmer, formal education, farming experience, family size, land holding, distance of farm to the village, distance to the main technology sources (BPTP), distance to the nearest extension office (BPP), distance to the financial source, distance to market, information facility, and land tenure status. Results showed: (1) Farmers' preferences to the technology components varied as indicated by the differences of technology components adopted by farmers, (2) The technology adoption gap for the accelerated adoption took 1-4 years, (3) Five independent variables were partially influenced the acceleration of technology adoption, namely farm size, distance to the village, distance to BPTP, distance to the extension office, and land tenure status, (4) Technology adoption would be accelerated by 100% if farm size was 1 ha more, and even six times more if the farm location is closer to the village. The implications of the study was to accelerate the rate of technology adoption a participatory technological guidance by agricultural extension is needed, preferably for farmers with larger farm size, shorter distance of farm from the village, and closer to the extension office.
