The purpose of this research was to investigate the determinants of the tendency of saffron farmers in Farooj county to form an agricultural cooperative from the perspective of collective action. This research was conducted through the survey approach and a researcher-made questionnaire was used to collect information. The statistical population included all saffron farmers in the research area (N = 3900). The sample size was estimated using Cochran's formula (n=150) and the respondents were selected by random sampling. Descriptive and inferential statistics such as correlation coefficient test, multiple regression analysis, and path analysis were used to analyze the data. All statistical analyzes were performed using SPSS22. To investigate the relationship between the dependent variable, the tendency to form a cooperative with independent variables: possible collective actions, the perceived positive impacts of cooperative formation, and the perceived negative impacts of cooperative formation, a correlation matrix was formed. Based on the findings, it can be seen that there was a direct and significant relationship between the tendency to form cooperative and possible collective actions and the perceived positive impacts of cooperative formation at the level of 99% confidence. In contrast, the relationship between the tendency to form cooperative, possible collective actions, the perceived positive impacts of cooperative formation on the one hand, and the perceived negative impacts of cooperative formation, on the other hand, has become negative and significant.
