The Indonesian government in self-sufficiency in rice carried out a Special Effort Program (UPSUS) to increase rice production in Indonesia. To achieve sustainable selfsufficiency in rice, extension workers, students and village supervisory officers (babinsa) are important elements in mobilizing the main actor farmers to be able to apply technology. Extension workers, students and Babinsa are one of the driving factors for farmers (main actors) and can play an active role as communicators, facilitators, advisors, motivators, educators, organizers and dynamists in the context of implementing special efforts to increase rice production. The results showed that the level of farmers participation in the UPSUS program was in middle classification, the factors that related to farmers participation were knowledge of UPSUS program, the frequency of attending the extension activity, the level of farmer motivation, and cosmopolite character. The age, the level of formal education, and the large number of landowners were not related to farmer participation, and there was a correlation between farmers participation in UPSUS programs and the rice productivity in Ambarawa Subdistrict. The results showed that the frequency of extension activities has a strong relationship with Farmer Participation in the UPSUS. This implies that more and more farmer activities have an impact on improving the UPSUSprogram. This program will be successful if it is supported by the land area owned by the farmers. Other findings in this study were age, and formal education were not associated with the success of the UPSUS Pajale program. This means that the success of the program does not depend on the education and age of the farmers,because most of the farmers do not have formal education and the average age is in the older group
