The aim of current investigation was to study influential factors of success level of technical and counseling companies from Tabriz Town farmers and technical-counseling companies’ perspective. Present research is of applied type. Statistical population of current study involves 131 leading farmers of Tabriz city and 45 technical counseling companies that are working at four districts of Khosroshahr,Basmenj, Tabriz Suburban and Espiran. Most of the study farmers were male, married, able to read and write (graduation level), with average age 46. The highest percent of the distribution was dedicated to lands 1-5 hectares with 56.48%. Most farmers showed their personal tendency of referring to the company expert’s office, announcing that personal referral has the highest advantage for them. Moreover, from these framers’ perspective, the most important barriers on the way of cooperating with the companies are costs imposed to them by the companies. According to these farmers, the indexes of company’s help in solving farmers’ problems, feeling free in solving regional issues and the role of researches in solving their problems had the lowest effects in company’s success in the field of providing service to the famers. Results of stepwise (multivariate) regression from farmers’ perspective indicated that 11independent variables remained in the final model. In this regression, the coefficient of determination of the variables was 83%, F-value of the table was 7.23%and its level of significance was 0.0085. Results of stepwise regression from companies’ perspective indicated that three independent variables remained at final model. Here coefficient of determination of the variables was 0.96%, F-value of the table was 4.83 and its level of significance was 0.034.
