Kaset Sombun (Thai: เกษตรสมบูรณ์) is a district (Amphoe) in the northern part of Chaiyaphum Province, northeastern Thailand.


Originally, the district was a minor district under the district Phu Khio. 1917 the minor district was renamed from Kaset Sombun to Ban Yang, the name of the central tambon.[1] On March 1, 1939 the minor district was upgraded to a full district and renamed back to the historical name Kaset Sombun.[2] Khun Nikon Nanthakit (At Watthanasuk) was the first district officer after the upgrade.


Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Khon San, Phu Khiao, Kaeng Khro, Mueang Chaiyaphum and Nong Bua Daeng.

To the north of the district is the Phu Khiao Wildlife Reserve. The Phu Laenkha National Park is within the three southeastern tambon of the district, and continues to the southwest to Mueang and Nong Bua Daeng districts.


The district is subdivided into 11 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 144 villages (muban). There are two subdistrict municipalities (thesaban tambon) - Kaset Sombun covers parts of tambon Ban Yang and Ban Pao parts of the same-named tambon. There are further 11 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
