Abstract

The success of a sustainable agriculture program is determined by the farmers, who are the main actors. Zero waste technology started to be used a few years ago, but there is still little awareness among farmers about how to use it. A large number of animal husbandry households have used biogas energy sources for cooking through the utilization of dairy cattle manure. The use of these technologies still causes problems, because there is a great deal of liquid and solid waste every day. The waste from biogas processing can be converted into liquid and solid fertilizers. This study aims to analyze the factors that influence the adoption of biogas waste technological innovations by farmer groups. The variables that are assumed to affect the adoption of the technology are age, level of education, the managerial skills of the farmer group, level of confidence in the success of the technology, the technological needs, interest in product sales, and the amount of guidance from extension officers. The research sample consists of the members of farmer groups who were chosen using a random sampling method from two farmer groups in different locations. The research results showed that the factors affecting the adoption of innovations in biogas waste technology are the level of education, the level of confidence in the success of the technology, interest in the product sales, and amount of guidance from extension officers.
