A survey was conducted to 80 farmers in Godong District Grobogan Regency Central Java, aimed to analyze factors that affect the decision in technology adoption of the application of high-quality green bean seeds in Central Javanese farmers’ household. Data were collected through interview with the structured questioner and analyzed with multiple regression models to identify factors that affect the decision of farmers to use high-quality green bean seeds. Results showed that the area of agricultural land, the allocation time of family member, the use of pesticide, and farming experience were significant factors in the decision of technology adoption. It can be concluded that the decision of technology adoption in farmers’ household depend on social economic condition and the effectiveness of the related institution.
