Currently, the land amalgamation has important role in agricultural and under pressure irrigation development. Agricultural land amalgamation programs were introduced to farmers of Kabutarahangh county since 1990; however, the adoption process has not been successful. For instance, after a decade, only 30 percent of the irrigated lands has been adopted. Accordingly, the aim of the study was to identify effecting factors on land amalgamation adoption in the county of Hamedan province. According to the results of this study, relevant authorities can implement effective strategies to accelerate the process of land amalgamation. Using Cochran formula, the sample size was calculated. Using multiple-stage cluster sampling, 160 farmers from six villages in three counties were selected. The validity of questionnaire was investigated by a committee of experts. After the pre-test, Cronbach's alpha coefficient was calculated. The results showed that the research tool was consistent. Because of the nominal scale of dependent variable (acceptance and rejection), the logit regression model was used to examine the relationship between independent and dependent variables. Estimated Logit regression model indicated that the following variablesincluding the amount of agricultural land, farmer's income, membership on agricultural organization, consulting with extension experts, agricultural background and the land's pieces have significant effects on adoption of land amalgamation by Kabutarahang farmers.
