Abstract

The objective of this research to study the capabilities of technologies and innovation of rice seed production and to create technology roadmap including determining guidelines in the development of the capabilities of technologies and innovation of rice seed production, in Ubon Ratchathani Province. The research instruments which are used interview guides and technology and innovation capability assessment form which the team of researcher developed from basic concepts of technology and innovation capabilities of Bell and Pavitt. The goal is to collect and evaluate 22 groups of rice seed farmers who is a member of the Rice Seed Center in Ubon Ratchathani Province. The level of ability can be divided into 4 levels, which are routine, basic, intermediate, and advanced. The results of these research showed that the team of researcher can identify the level of technological capability and innovation of the elements in 6 aspects which are technology accumulation, production process, source that is important for creating technological change, connection of department, product or the new process of production, and supporting marketing goals, which the overall level of capability is the basic level. The research team has developed a technology roadmap of rice seed production which divided to strategic target in three period, short-term (1-3 years); productivity technology and quality control technology, medium-term (3-5 years); technology for R&D of rice varieties, and long-term (more than 5 years); advanced technology for flexible production and advanced technology for R&D of rice varieties. Include, determining guidelines for the development of capability of technology and innovation in rice seed production covering all 6 aspects and presented all this information to relevant government agencies and a group of agriculturist who produce rice seed in order to develop in the future.
