Abstract The aim of this study is to develop a theoretical model for land capability assessment. The study investigates components and factors, which are required for an effective agricultural management system, and considers relationships, and interactions within and between those components and factors in contributing to the capability of farmland. The theoretical model incorporates theory from a range of disciplines relating to agricultural management and agricultural land, including the bio-physical, technical and management, land development and improvement, land conservation and environmental, socio-economic, and institutional and policy. The contribution of the components and factors, and their interactions are key considerations in analysing the capability of farmland.

The theoretical model is tested through undertaking a case study in the Mekong Delta, Viet Nam, based on suitable farming systems. The results from the case study confirm the adaptability, flexibility and applicability of the theoretical model, as well as providing useful feedback for the theoretical model.
