Sources of primary data from interviews with 30 lowland rice farmers, and secondary data from the Indramayu Agriculture Service. Data analysis was carried out by analyzing farming and varietal distribution. The results of the study found that in Indramayu, the use of improved varieties Inpari 32 in 2021 reached 45.97% of the total area used for various varieties. The use of the Inpari 32 variety has shifted the dominance of the Ciherang variety. The productivity of lowland rice farming of the Inpari 32 variety is 7.2 tons/ha GKP and the farming profit is Rp. 17.70 million/ha/season.
