Pati Regency has the highest cassava productivity in Central Java, however tapioca industry still experiences difficulty in finding raw materials, moreover, cassava farmers have low income. The objectives of this research are 1) to investigate spatial distribution pattern of cassava and tapioca industry, 2) to review the supply of cassava to self-sufficiency oriented tapioca, and 3) to create model of integrated empowerment pilot plan received by upstream-downstream human resources. The research used Cluster Area sampling technique of cassava field and Simple Random Sampling in tapioca industry. The pilot plan model approved by the human resources was the qualified and ready-to-process cassava. Other than that, it could increase additional value of cassava products made by chip makers or for stabilizing the supply to the downstream sector as the raw material for tapioca industry.
