This paper examines the level of country's development with respect to the main indices of agricultural sector and its main purpose is to find the level of gap among provinces and the type of deprivation of each province. The statistical population of this study includes all the provinces of the country. The 18 indices used in this study emphasized the management of province resources with respect to agriculture. The most important findings are that the gap between the provinces is very deep regarding agricultural activities and reaches to fivefold. Khorasan, Fars, Mazandaran, Kerman, Esfahan and Tehran can be counted as more developed provinces, while Sistan-and- Baluchestan, Hormozgan, Bushehr, Kohgilouyeh-and-Boyerahmad, Qom, and Chaharmahal-and-Bakhtiari can be considered as most deprived ones. The application of coefficient of variation showed that the highest difference is related to the index of the size of green houses and the least difference is related to the ratio of landless rural households.
