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