The opportunity to increase cassava productivity can be done through cultivation technology improvement. The research aimed to obtain information on the suitability of agroecology, agro-economy, and strategy planning for developing cassava as local food. Research was carried out in 2021 in the form of survey and field experiment in Sukabumi Regency, West Java. Data analysis that was used is Random Block Design for field experiment and SWOT analysis for survey data. The results indicated that fertilization significantly increased the growth of Manggu and Adira 1. Adira 1 can be accepted by farmers as an alternative to Manggu because it has higher starch content. Dominant factors identified as potentials for cassava-based local food development are the suitability of cultivation location and increasing demand. There are four important strategies, i.e.: (1) maxi-maxi strategy, by exploiting strengths and opportunities in cassava development, (2) mini-maxi strategy, by overcoming the weaknesses of cassava resources owned to take advantage of existing opportunities, (3) maxi-mini strategy, by trying to find the strengths of the cassava farming and used to ward off the threats with coordination between parties, and (4) mini-mini strategy, where the threats and weaknesses of cassava farming can be faced by well-targeted and steady policies.
