The practice of burning rice straw after harvest seems to be normal and natural. The reason was simple to speed up the processing of land to pursue the next planting season and avoid the spread of pests and diseases. Whereas, rice straw open burning, aside from disposing of fertilizer resources was also a source of carbon gas emissions that have an impact on air quality. Rice straw burning has been closely related to the crops types that will be planted next. Data collected in the study were analyzed descriptively. The collected data were tabulated and presented in the form of frequency tables and percentages. Based on the study results, it was found that the type of crops to be planted greatly influenced the farmer’s decision to burn rice straw. There were two types of plants that tend to influence the farmer’s decision to burn rice straw, namely corn, and peanuts. Burning was also conducted if the farmers will return to planting rice after harvesting rice. They believe that the burning ash of rice straw will increase production from corn and peanuts.
