Abstract

Cassava has a prospect to be developed in marginal land of South Kalimantan. Farmers still use local variety with simple production technique. They cultivate cassava as an intercropping crop of oil palm or rubber plants. With ‘surjan’ system, cassava production was 4-5 tonnes/ha. It has a prospect to be increased with the use of superior variety and improved production technique. Study aims to determine the role of cassava for rural household’s economy. Data obtained from study literatures (desk study) and survey then be analyzed descriptively quantitative and qualitative. The use of local variety with simple production technique resulted profit IDR 13 million/ha with B/C ratio 1.8. Cassava farming was contributed 18.18% to household’s total income. In small amount, businness on cassava cuttings and cassava-based traditional food products processing has added income for some households. There are some homescale cassava-based agroindustries in South Kalimantan for instance crackers, chips, and modified cassava flour. Eventhough cassava farming’s contribution to household total income is categorized as low contribution value, its role for household’s economy is still important particularly when it is developed into cassava processing agroindustriesin centers of cassava production due to the agroindustries provide high added value, high profit, efficient, and feasibility to be done.
