Salt demand for industry and consumption has been a major problem for the world. Several producers such as Australia, India, New Zealand, Germany, and Indonesia have been supplying salt to meet world demand. However, Indonesia itself still imports 3,989 million tons salt and keep rising about 10 % per year. Technology and innovation for salt production are urgently needed. Methods and Materials:This study aimed to investigate the dissemination level of Ulil Filtered Technology (TUF) and geo-membrane technology and factors influencing salt production in Pangkep. Purposive sampling was performed for data collection. Regression analysis was applied. Revenue cost analysis (R-C ratio) was performed by using Gie formulation (1981). Break Event Point analysis (BEP) was applied according to sigit formulation (1979), and Pay Back Period (PBP) analysis was used based on Sagana formulation (2008). Results showed that salt farmers, who unfamiliar with TUF and geo-membrane technology ranged from 6.71 to 9.62%, fairly know (36.53 - 37.76%) and know to use TUF and geo-membrane technology (53.85 - 55.53%). Cost and technology significantly affected the salt production, including area and number of labors. The business feasibility study showed that Revenue Cost Ratio (1.98), Break Event Point (IDR 4,735,276), and Pay Back Period (1.9 years), respectively. Conclution : The dissemination of technological innovation both TUF and geo-membrane on salt farming is adequately understood and familiar by Pangkep community. In addition, Initial capital, land, labor and technologies significantly affect the salt production. Furthermore, salt farming is feasible to be developed in Pangkep regency.
