Background/Objectives: The orientation and assessment of land use systems have an important role in the agricultural production development; restructuring of commodity product markets; improvements in income and living standards of the associated communities. Through this research, we aim to assess the potential of land in the Viet-Yen District (Vietnam) in order to provide the basis for boosting its agriculture. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Both primary and secondary data have been collected for this study, where, the primary data were collected through interviewing the farmers on the status and effectiveness of land use under their territory, while using sixty detailed questionnaires from six communes/territories of the District. Findings: Through this research, we came-up with the results of orientation and assessing processes of agricultural land use systems in the Viet-Yen District, while using the maps of land units and the technical efficiency of the farmers, in respect of different cropping seasons at various terrains. From that, the stakeholders can compare the characteristics of the land unit with the requirements of the land use type of the current situation, assess the appropriate extent. Through analyses, we have proposed agricultural and forestry land use and its effectiveness, in accordance with natural conditions, in order to improve land use efficiency. Applications/Improvements: The findings of this study can serve as the scientific basis for the formulation of land use plans and strategies for the district as well as for the country.
