This study aims to find out and describe the construction of Muna people's knowledge of pineapple farming in Katapi Village, Parigi District, Muna Regency. This study uses cultural theory as a cognitive system by Ward Goodenough. This research method uses ethnographic methods by collecting data through participant observation and in-depth interviews. The results of this study indicate that the knowledge construction of the Muna people in pineapple farming in Katapi Village, Parigi District, Muna Regency, starts from preparing pineapple planting sites, both in the yard of the house, the border of the garden and the former place of burning. Next, how to procure seedlings, is done by giving and asking each other to farmers who have farmed pineapple. How to fertilize the plants is done by way of sinala, using household waste such as kitchen ash, the rest of the dishwasher and fish water. Harvesting is done when pineapple has turned yellow. The knowledge of Muna in pineapple farming has now undergone changes to become more modern. Nevertheless, there are still local people who farm pineapple on a regular basis.
