Abstract

The sustainability of avocado fruit farming in Indonesia needs to be considered, this is because avocados have a large market potential in Indonesia. One of the factors in the sustainability of farming is the environment, where environmental factors consist of several indicators. The purpose of this study was to analyze the influence of environmental factors in influencing the sustainability of avocado farming. The method of determining the sample of farmers using stratified random sampling and obtained 125 respondents. Data analysis used path analysis with AMOS 24.0 software. The results of the path analysis show that environmental factors have a direct effect on sustainability with a standardized regression coefficient of 0.290. The forming of environmental factor variables consists of five indicators, including weeding and cleaning garbage, pruning branches, applying insecticides, applying fertilizers, and harvesting. The coefficient value is obtained from the fertilizer application indicator (x11 = 0.990); giving insecticides (x12 = 1.050); pruning branches (x13 = 1.080); weeding and clearing garbage (x14 = 1.050;, and harvesting (x15 = 1.000). Based on these data, it can be concluded that all indicators that form environmental variables have an effect on the sustainability of avocado farming.
