The end of a project is frequently followed by cessation of innovative activities. Therefore, the question of how to sustain organic rice farming system (ORFS) is valuable. Based on “importance-performance-analysis” (IPA) model, this research aims to explore the main achievement of ORFS implementations that should have to be maintained. By 109 samples based on Slovin Formula with 7% error probability taken randomly in Tasikmalaya Regency, West Java, Indonesia, and data was collected during July-September 2019, the research finds three ORFS’ attributes categorized into high expectation and high performance in farmer perspective, includes understanding of liquid and solid organic fertilizer making, manufacturing vegetable organic pesticide; and adopting organic fertilizer & vegetable pesticide in farming practice. Based on IPA approach, these items are the achievement that should be kept to maintain the ORFS practice.
