A questionnaire survey by interview to the farmhouse in Nakhon Pathom Province in Thailand had been carried out, where the asparagus farming as the cash crop have spread rapidly. Valid response from 24 farmers were obtained and Asparagus had been planted in 30 plots within 74 plots (40.5%). As the result of statistical analysis on the geospatial preference for asparagus fields by logit model in which the geospatial characteristics of plots such as elevation, slope, curvature, acreage and distance from farmhouse were adapted as the explanatory variables while the category of the cultivated crops in there was adapted as the independent variable, it became clear that as for the asparagus plots, small lots were more preferred. On the other hand, the geospatial preference for asparagus plots such as elevation, slope, curvature and distance from farmhouse did not became clear.
