The use of manure fertilizers (inorganic) tends to be excessive because it is not based on the analysis of plant nutrient requirements, because it needs efforts to increase the use of organic fertilizer as an alternative to maintaining soil fertility. A series of studies related to the use of organic fertilizer have been carried out in Cikoneng District, Ciamis Regency. The research objectives of this survey approach are: (1) to describe the level of adoption of farmers in the use of organic fertilizer for lowland rice, (2) analyze the factors that influence the rate of adoption, and (3) find a formula for increasing the use of organic fertilizer for lowland rice. The sample was determined randomly following the Isaac and Michael formula of 70 respondents. Data were collected using a closed questionnaire that had been tested for validity and reliability. The results of the study show: (1) the adoption rate of farmers is in the medium category, (2) the characteristics of innovation have a significant effect (α = 0.05) on the level of adoption of organic fertilizer use in lowland rice, (3) strategies that can be taken to increase the use of organic fertilizer are with more intensive counseling about the manufacture and benefits of using organic fertilizers
