The objective of this paper was to study the factors affecting farmers' participation in the implementation of the land consolidation project in Iran. Required data were collected by a questionnaire and an interview with 137 farmers selected through stratified sampling method from 4 out of 8 rural districts in Shirvan and Chardavol City. The collected data through questionnaires were analyzed through the SPSS software, and the descriptive and inferential statistics were studied using univariate and bivariate analyses. The results demonstrated that the farmers’ level of education and their awareness of the concept of land consolidation are the major factors affecting the tendency of land owners to participate in the land consolidation project. The high operational costs of the project are the main deterring factor in its execution.
Key words: Shirvan and Chardavol city, land consolidation, land fragmentation.
