The activities of urban farming in Southeast are still limited and scattered. In order to give valuable insights into the urban agriculture of Southeast Asia and to support researchers, we need to know in details the available options and gaps in this research direction that will serve future researchers. Thus, in this study, a review is conducted to map the research landscape into a coherent taxonomy. The research procedure focuses on all these subject matters related to urban farming system activities, technology application and their use in the urban farms and smallholder farming activities in Southeast Asia. These studies selected from the three major digital databases, namely, the ScienceDirect, Web of Science, and Scopus. The study selection process consists of research into literature sources, followed by three iterations of screening and filtering, excluded duplicate articles, screening the titles and abstracts and reading of the full-text articles. The final included result is 88 articles, which will be adopted on in this study. Further, a review in details of the layout of the research landscape of literature is conducted into a cohesive classification with its descriptive analysis. We also identify the essential characteristics of this emerging field in the following aspects: benefits of using urban farming activities in Southeast Asia, challenges hindering utilization, and recommendations to improve the acceptance and use of urban farming applications in literature.
