Vietnam’s agriculture has gained outstanding achievements such as having a foothold on its food and nutrition security, solving the jobs in the rural areas, its contribution to GDP, etc., but it has also been facing challenges in the context of climate change and disasters. Smart agriculture is a solution for Vietnam and its small farmers to overcome the above difficulties. Smart agriculture helps farmers gain access to complete and timely information, skills, techniques to make better decisions in their production and trading. This will lead to farmers’ increases in productivity, outputs, income and profits. The application of smart agriculture in Vietnam still has some basic limitations such as small household size, high cost in technology investments, difficulties in accessing capital, land and suitable technologies, etc. To develop smart agriculture in Vietnam, the State needs to innovate policies on digital transformation in line with smart agricultural technology so that small households and cooperatives can have convenient access.
