Abstract. The condition of agricultural land is increasingly critical to encourage the parties to find the most appropriate strategy in agricultural cultivation. One of the strategies being pursued is through the innovation of environmentally friendly rice, as is the case being implemented in Pesawaran Regency, Lampung Province. However, the program has not been able to be implemented optimally, so that rice production in Lampung is still far from optimal production and is not yet environmentally friendly. Farmers as the main actors must be able to implement environmentally friendly lowland rice innovations. Before farmers can implement these innovations, farmers must understand how to increase empowerment in farming paddy fields to encourage increased income and sustainable regional economic growth. The introduction of environmentally friendly lowland rice innovations to the farming community has been done for years, however it has not yet yielded significant results. That is, the process of adoption and diffusion (dissemination) of the innovations that were introduced took place slowly, even some farmers stopped adopting them. These constraints need to be known including the factors causing it. Therefore this research aims to: (1) Analyze the level of adoption of innovations of environmentally friendly lowland rice farmers in Pesawaran Regency; (2) Analyzing factors related to the level of innovation adoption of environmentally friendly lowland rice farmers. The research method is in the form of a survey to obtain quantitative data. Qualitative data were collected through interviews with a number of respondents. The data collected will then be analyzed descriptively and using regression analysis. The results showed that the majority of farmers in the Pesawaran district were still low in implementing environmentally friendly lowland rice innovations. Factors that influence the adoption of innovations in lowland rice by farmers in Pesawaran District are the support of agricultural institutions, individual characteristics (age, land area, income) and information technology facilities Keywords: adoption, farmers, innovation, rice field, and sustainable,
