The innovation adoption of integrated crop management consists of two technological components, namely the basic technology component and the selected technology component. The basic technology component consists of the use of superior varieties, quality and healthy seeds, provision of organic material, fertilizing based on plant needs and soil nutrient status, as well as integrated pest control. Whereas the selected technology component consists of tillage according to season and cropping pattern, crop management, effective and efficient irrigation, weeding, and handling of harvest and post-harvest. The influence of the level of innovation adoption of integrated crop management can affect the productivity of lowland rice. The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of the level of innovation adoption on the productivity of lowland rice in farmers group of national strategic food center in Kapuas Regency, Central Kalimantan Province. Data processing with simple linear regression analysis. The results showed that the level of innovation adoption had a significant and positive effect on the productivity of lowland rice with a significance level of 5%. This is proven by the value of t-Statistics (7,651) > T-Table (1,960)(two tailed) and the value of p (sig.) <0,05. Therefore, the hypothesis which states that the level of innovation adoption had an influence on the productivity of lowland rice (accepted). The coefficient value of 0.870, this indicates that there is a positive influence means the higher the level of innovation adoption of Integrated Crop Management then will cause the higher the effect on the lowland rice productivity. Directly the magnitude of the contribution of the level of innovation adoption on the productivity of lowland rice is equal to 0,277 (27,7%).
