Abstract

Permata District, Benar Meriah Regency is one of the largest coffee producers in Bener Meriah. However, the quantity and quality of Gayo coffee produced is still low. For this reason, this paper analyzes changes in the cultivation practice of Gayo coffee farmers and analyzes the perceptions and levels of adoption of GAP cultivation and identifies the factors that influence the level of adoption of GAP Gayo Arabica coffee cultivation in Permata District. This research was conducted with a qualitative method, prioritizing data collection with participatory observation and in-depth interviews. The results showed that the cultivation and maintenance of coffee was not optimal, (seed selection, fertilization, and pruning were still not in accordance with the GAP of coffee plants).
