Adoption of Good Agricultural Practices Standard by Cattle Farmers in the Binh Dinh Province of Vietnam

  • Hung Gia Hoang Hue University

Abstract

This study examined factors that affect the adoption of VietGAP by Vietnamese beef cattle farmers. A random sample of 305 farmers was drawn from a total of 1279 farmers who produced and marketed beef cattle in the Binh Dinh province of Vietnam. Descriptive and inferential statistics, including percentages, means, standard deviations, a chi squares test, t-test and a binary logistic regression model were employed to analyse the data. The study found that the young male farmers with a higher education level, who have a large number of cattle, possess a large farm and own ICT tools for marketing, have high income and communication with extension officers, have a greater tendency to adopt VietGAP.
