1. The present research deals with recent transformation of agriculture and rural areas in the Khorat plateau, Thailand, under rapid economic development through industrialization.
2. Major findings is as follows.
(1) The Khorat plateau is divided into four areas from the view points of topography, hydrological environment and land use.
(2) Soil moisture holding capacity, in addition to loss of top soil, is found to be a key factor for sustainable upland crop cultivation.
(3) In rice cultivation, significant amount of phosphorus is lost through seepage and percolation during rice cultivation period, which may be a major factor to cause imbalance of nutrition of rainfed rice cultivation.
(4) Transplanting is rapidly replaced by direct seeding in lowland rainfed paddy fields mostly due to labor shortage, which indicates the possibility for farmers to diversify agriculture and sources of income.
(5) Forest land decreases when upland crop cultivation is profitable, and is recovered when off-farm job is more profitable than upland crop cultivation. Local community plays a catalystic role in this process.
(6) Village industry is found to be based on historically developed network in rural areas to distribute and concentrate information and capital.
3. Following points will be discussed more in detail in the final reports.
(1) Fundamental setting, particularly historical and environmental, of recent changes in agriculture and rural society.
(2) Relationship between economic prosperity in urban areas through industrialization, and economic development in rural areas and changes in agricultural technology.
(3) Natural resources management under dynamic economics.
