- The calcareous land is one of the alternative lands which are still underutilized in Gunungkidul Regency Special Region of Yogyakarta. This study aims to know and analyze the cost, income, profit, feasibility of the cassava farming, and the constraints towards developing cassava farming. The basic method used in this research is a quantitative and descriptive in nature. Respondents were chosen using simple random sampling and the total number of respondents is 60 farmers consisting of 30 calcareous land farmers and 30 farmers of rain fed land, both are active members of the farmers group. The results show that the total cost of cassava farming of rain fed land is higher than that in the calcareous land. However, the income and profit in cassava farming are higher in the calcareous land than that of rain-fed land. Overall, cassava farming in the rain-fed and calcareous land is feasible to develop. Furthermore, the study finds out that the farmers rain-fed lands are constrained by higher cost, but low prices of the products, while the farmers in the calcareous lands are challenged by the heavy rainfall, damaging the cassava plantation. This study recommends that the farmers should develop cassava production utilizing the calcareous land in Gunungkidul Regency.
