PROMOTING FACTORS OF LAND CONSOLIDATION OF PADDY FIELDS IN IRAN: CASE OF WEST PART OF GUILAN PROVINCE (Pages : 1 - 6)

E. GOLICHENARI, S. FIROUZI AND M.S. ALLAHYARI

To identify the promoting factors of paddy field consolidation in Iran, a cross sectional survey was performed in western part of Guilan province of Iran. All stakeholders of the Agricultural Organization (Jihad-e-Keshavarzi), including managers, technical agents, water and soil experts, herbaceous production experts, and rice supervisors were considered as sample respondent of this study. One hundred nineteen structured questionnaires containing determining items of the promoters of land consolidation were performed with the sample respondents. For examining the validity of the questionnaire, the face and content validity were used. Cronbach's alpha was used to measure the reliability of the instrument, which was 0.887 and confirmed the reliability of the instrument. Findings indicated that “eliminating extra borders”, “access to roads and drainage facilities”, “decreasing production costs”, and increasing farmers’ incomes” are the most important promoters of land consolidation of paddy fields in west part of Guilan province. “Increasing yield and second crop cultivated area” and “establishment of production cooperative and unions” are found as the least effective promoters. Using the factor analysis technique, the promoting factors were classified as productive inputs, social, mechanization, economic, management, and cost factors. These factors explained 66.9% of the total variance. Download
