Abstract

The study investigated the effectiveness and impacts of agricultural policies on rice farmers in Vietnam by using the data of Vietnam Household Uving Standard Survey 2005- 2006 (VHLSS 2006). The connections of agricultural policies with technology, off- farm income and the life improvement were determined. The results indicated that there were no positive relationships of agricultural policies with the technical efficiency and life improvement of rice farmers. Farmers who benefited from policies were less able to grow rice efficiently improve their lives. Nevertheless, the study revealed that agricultural policies were partly effective for the poor farmers in terms of life improvement. The more they enjoyed the benefit of agricultural policies the better their life improved.
