From the initiative of King Bhumibol, HupKaphong Royal Development Project has been well-known as a learning center for agriculture project since 1964. The project has started after local farmers experiencing agricultural difficulties on infertile soil. With help from Israel researchers, the local farmers have learned methods to improve their agriculture such as soil improvement, cash crops and dairy cattle. They have created a strong cooperative management to run the project efficiency. Travelers are welcomed to visit for touring and browsing some products such as fresh crops and craft works like hats or bags made from hemp which have been exported to Asian and European countries.
