Every one hundred farm households were selected from the four villages for the present study. Two are in the RRD,the other two are in the MKD to get full information of farm household activities. Villages were selected by the different factors such as location, soil condition, cropping patterns and so on. The primary results are as follows ;
(1) The average total cash revenue from farming activities was highest in Binh Phu village, Cai Lay District, Tien Giang Province followed by Long Thang village, Lai Vung District, Dong Thap Province.
