The Accessibility to Agricultural Land Market of Poor Farm Households in Phu Tho Province: Current Situation and Implications
Accessing land market is still a new concept to many poor households in Phu Tho province. It was clearly shown from a survey conducted within three districts: Thanh Son, Cam Khe and Lam Thao in November 2014 that only a few poor households took part in trading, leasing, and transferring land. The rate of poor households accessing leasing/lending land market ranged from 1,08% to 5,88%.Production capital shortage, deficit of labour resources, lack of leasers/borrowers were main reasons contributing to that situation. However, the survey also pointed out some solutions to improve the f accessibility to agricultural land market by poor households with the aims of improving productivity, freeing labours, increasing incomes and reducing poverty.
