There were very high relationship between all independent which with dependent variables, r = 0.805, 0.862, 0.887and 0.593 respectively. Meanwhile, the significance p value were 0.000 which less than 0.05, so null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected. Thus, it can be concluded that there positive significant relationship between independence variable and dependent variable. For result regression analysis, stated that the most influence variable toward the acceptance level environmental friendly practices is environment safety with the β= 0.593. From the model analysis, there are about 80.4% dependent variable was explained independent variable and 19.6% was explained by another factors. Conclusion, environmental friendly practices is one of suitable method to manage the farm in good management likes good drainage system, no open burning, correcting timing for harvesting and pruning and others activities. This is due to the concept of environment is nature and do not harmful to the human health.
