Abstract

The objective of this study were to 1. analyzed the suitable area for cassava planting, Khampangphet province by using Geographic Information System (GIS). 2. Developed the knowledge sets related to clean cassava production by applying the Geo-informatics, and knowledge synthesis from the experts, prototype farmers and village scholars. 3. Organized activities, propagated, and evaluated of knowledge transfer to farmers in 3 ways; training, booklet, and cassava mobile school activities. The study found that (1) Kamphaeng Phet province has high suitable level area for cassava planting of 16.85%, moderate suitable 14.22%, slightly suitable 19.91%, inappropriate 16.60%, and outside the agricultural area 32.42%. (2) The development of the Geo-informatics knowledge set found that 4 knowledge sets can be created; suitable areas for cassava planting, suitable cassava genetics, cassava suitable area and drought and flood risk, and guidelines for soil, land and fertilizer management in cassava cultivation. (3) Assessment of knowledge transfer in all 3 methods, found that all participants were satisfied at both the overall and the activity level as high satisfied.
