This study aims to analyze the structural model of the increase productivity and sustainability of rice farming in West Tanjung Jabung District. The data used are primary data obtained directly from farmers. The sample size used was 90 farmers. Sampling using simple random sampling method. The data analysis used the SEM Partial Least Square structural model. The results of the analysis show that the description of internal factors, external factors of farmers and the adoption of farming technology are in the medium category. The productivity and farming sustainability factors are in a low category. The determinant factor that greatly influences the productivity and sustainability of rice farming is farm income. Farm productivity and sustainability are significantly influenced by farmers 'access to credit, farmers' access to technology, and access to input procurement. The main determinant of productivity is the use of production inputs. The sustainability of farming is mainly determined by economic aspects, especially income. Models for increasing productivity and agricultural sustainability must pay attention to efforts to improve farmers' access to credit, access to technology and access to input procurement. Efforts are needed to handle the input output price for rice so that it can increase farmers' income.
