Abstract

The objectives of this study were to 1) identify the situation of farmer?s participation in the sustainable agricultural development (SAD) project under the Royal Project in highland area, 2) identify the relationships between factors and the participation of highland farmers in the SAD project, and 3) identify problems, threats and suggestions related to their participation. Using multi-stage sampling, 399 SAD farmers in Chiang Mai province were purposively selected. It was found that the participation level of farmers was moderate. Such independent variables as benefits from the SAD project, land holding size, involvement in agricultural development activities, and education level were statistically related to their participation in SAD project at the .05 level of significance. The significant problems of farmers? participation were time constraints, lack of knowledge about the benefit of participation, and lack of appropriate public relations. Getting farmers involved in community project organizations was suggested by the farmers. In addition, the government or Royal Project should provide knowledge about benefit of participation for farmers, and the community leaders should be allowed to participate in development organization. Furthermore, the suggestions of the researcher were to train farmers more about project monitoring and evaluation. It was significant to persuade the farmers to participate in any arranged activities.

Abstract

The objectives of this research were to study the influence of personal characteristics, socio-economic factors, and dairy farming factors on decision making on occupational development by dairy farmers in upper northern Thailand. The study sample consisted of 289 dairy farmers in a Dairy Cooperative in Upper Northern Thailand. The research instrument used to collect data was an interview schedule and analysis used descriptive statistics and hypothesis testing by stepwise multiple regression analysis. It was found that most of sampled farmers decided to expand their dairy farming operations. Independent variables—namely, age, experience of dairy farming, practice of dairy farming, satisfaction with government including dairy farming, expectation towards children inheriting the dairy farm, and physical and economic problems in dairy farming were statistically related at the .05 level of significance to decision making by dairy farmers on occupational development. The significant problems identified by dairy farmers were: lack of land, insufficient income, lack of dairy information, and the rising cost of production. Agencies involved should: visit farms to advise farmers closely and continually, support farm loans for farm expansion, build a positive attitude towards dairy farming in farmers? children, and campaign for an increase in milk consumption, so that Thai dairy farmers are able to live sustainably.
