By Thang Phan Dang, Vu Dinh Ton and Marc Dufumier


Ongoing the research on the agricultural and rural dynamics at Cam Hoang commune of the Hai Duong province, situated in the heart of the Red River Delta, for a better understanding the evolution of agricultural systems, we have continually been realized an economic analyze. This study aims to identify and to analyze the economic-technical efficiencies of the five main polyculture-livestock farming systems at different scales, known as farming systems (SP), in the light of the agricultural developmental evolutions in the region. Only 10% of the farm households produce sufficiently for selling an important part of their agricultural production, around 76.5% of the farm households must have an extra-agricultural activity, and only 14.6% rely exclusively to their agricultural activity. One active labor’s revenue varies from 8,365 kd (thousand Vietnam dongs) in the system SP5 to 36,597 kd per year for the farmers of the group SP3b, or one important disparity from 1 to 4.4 times between the households at the same commune. This research enabled to underline a significant number of problems related to the rural development, the durability in agricultural production, but also reveals the positive dynamics within the agricultural households.Peer reviewe
