Result of the study showed that the market factor was significant to farmer shifting in variety of coconut production because there had high demand of new variety in the market and high price in current market. For the demographic factor, there is no influence the farmer to shift in the current variety to new variety. This is because most farmers are not frequent to extension program indirectly slow to use the extension service in their coconut production activity. This will make the farmers not gain new information about a certain variety, so this will indicate that demographic factor does not influence the shifting in variety among coconut farmers. For the attitude factor, the result show attitude factor does not influence farmers to shift from current variety to new variety because the incentive provide by the government still cannot support them to shifting from current variety to new variety.
