Tóm tắt: This study addresses factors influencing th e adoption of specialty rice variety among smallholder farmers in Vietnam. We used a sa mple of 336 farmers from the Red River Delta who were interviewed between October and December 2014. We follow the adoption behavior model based on the utility maximizati on criterion and adopt a two-step approach, starting with a Probit model for determinants of specialty rice adoption before analyzing the intensity of adoption using a Tobit model. Over all, 50% of the probabi lity of specialty rice adoption is explained by the selected indepe ndent variables such as: cultivated land, experience in growing rice, and network size . Tobit model estimates show that group membership (such as in agricultural cooperati ves, farmer’s union, etc. ) and possession of a two-wheel-tractor increase the share of land allocation to specialty rice production by 3.4% and 7.8% respectively. Based on th e findings manifold social a nd political implications will be derived.
