Abstract

Cocoa is one of the main sub-sector commodities in Indonesia in which production tends to decline due to the low adoption rate of cocoa cultivation technology. This study aims to determine the level of cocoa technology innovation adoption and its effect on cocoa quality in Bantaeng, Pinrang, and East Luwu Regencies. This research was conducted in 3 districts, namely East Luwu Regency (Burau, Wotu and M Transana), Pinrang District (Lembang, Patampanua, and Batulappa), and Bantaeng Regency (Gantangkeke District and Tompubulu District) South Sulawesi Province. This study used two data analysis methods, namely qualitative descriptive and quantitative, then the data were correlated using rank Spearman correlation analysis in the SPSS application. The results showed that the average percentage level of cocoa cultivation technology adoption in the three districts was in the moderate category (66.61%). Furthermore, the the level of cocoa cultivation technology adoption had a positive effect on improving the physical quality of cocoa beans with the correlation coefficient of cocoa cultivation technology adoption with beans weight per 100 grams was 0.680- weight per bean was 0.583- a bean length was 0.391, and the cocoa bean thickness was 0.547.
