Abstract


The paper focuses on the productivity of the natural rubber industries of Cambodia and Thailand by analyzing the diffusion of agricultural and industrial technologies throughout the planting, cultivating and primary processing by adopting the analytic hierarchy process. The paper draws a conclusion that the technology diffusion in Cambodia is behind especially in terms of clone technologies in the agriculture process, foreign materials removal technologies in the industrial process, and the gap of human resources and research institute related to natural rubber industries are highlighted.
