Abstract
The purpose of this study was to determine the impact caused by the modernization of agriculture on the female farmer’s income in Pidie district. The model used is independent sample t-test. The result showed that agriculture modernization has a positive and negative impact on farmer’s income. While the farmers who own the land have more revenue because of the reduced cost for production, female farmers who do not own the land have less income. This is because opportunity and working hour carried out by farmer is replaced by modern machine. Thus, the female workers must improve their technology skill to be able to farm. On the other hand, mastering the technology can help them to access other sectors that provide better job opportunities and income.
