In the last two decades the demand for corn continues to increase, especially to supply livestock feed mill industry's. The development of hybrid corn must continue to be improved in order to achieve sustainable food self-sufficiency. Application of corn cultivation technology at the farm level becomes very important in increasing productivity and income. The purpose of this study are: (1) to examine the level of participation of farmers in corn farming; (2) assessing the level of application

The research was conducted at three location of Patanas village, there are Paccarammengan Village, Bulukumba District, South Sulawesi Province; Sindang Mekar Village, Garut District, West Java Province; and Resongo Village, Probolinggo District, East Java Province in 2017 through survey method. Primary data was collected through interview with 66 farmers as the respondents by using a structured questionnares. The data were arranged in a cross tabulation and analyzed to measure the feasibility of the farming based on the gross B/C ratio, profitability, BEP (Break Even Point) of productivity, and BEP of price. The result showed that corn farming in the research area was profitable with gross value of B/C 3.06-3.18 without rent land and 1.77-1.98 with rent land. The BEP condition of productivity and price is below the actual production of farmers and the actual price received by farmers which shows the stability of productivity and the price of corn at the study site is classified as good.
