Abstract: The demand of sugar is increasing along with the growth in population and the development of industrial users. The slow increase in production is due to the low production of sugar factories in Indonesia and the areas where sugar canes are cultivated are decreasing. In 1998, PG Cepiring experienced revitalization and became PT Industri Gula Nusantara (PT IGN) which is now one of sugar factories run by private. PG Cepiring was closed due to the grind capacity of the factory could not be obtained because the farmers were reluctant to cultivate sugar canes and as the result, the supply of sugar canes decreased. Related to this situation, the research aims to know and to describe the reluctant of farmers to cultivate sugar canes from technical, economical, and social aspect. The research is included to qualitative descriptive research. The research has been done in Kendal and the participants are sugar canes farmers, ex-sugar canes farmers, and non-sugar canes farmers.

The review of technical aspect, the farmers are reluctant to cultivate sugar canes is that the land ownership is small and disperses; to cultivate sugar canes is difficult and there are many works to do; and sugar canes need long times to ripe. 2.
