This research aimed to study risk factors in agricultural supply chain to be used as a guideline for planning and managing risk factors in various agricultural product supply chains. This research conducted by literature review in various countries. Risk factors in agriculture supply chain that were found included supply risk, demand and market risk, production risk, information risk, logistics risk, accounting and finance risk, weather risk, human risk, equipment and technology risk, policy and political risk and land risk. The selection of risk factors should be considered along with the type of agricultural product, planting process and cultivation area for the most efficient management of agricultural supply chain. Since, different limitations resulted in different risk factor management methods.
