The study investigated the effectiveness and impacts of agricultural policies on rice farmers in Vietnam
by using the data of Vietnam Household Living 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.
