Abstract: This study attempts to analyze the factors affecting practicing of electronic trade in Sudan, and studying the awareness of agricultural traders about electronic trade, and assessing the efficiency of electronic trade in comparison to traditional trade. The main factors considered by the study that expected to affect practicing electronic trade are, age, education, knowledge of computer, using internet, having E-mail, and knowledge of electronic trade The study was based on primary and secondary data. Different methods of analyses were used including simple descriptive statistics, cross tabulation and regression analysis. The regression analysis was done in stepwise manner of factors affecting electronic trade. The study indicates that while the age of the trader is increasing, using computer and other elements of electronic trade were decreasing for both exporters and importers. Descriptive statistics analysis indicates that 52% of the interviewed traders were university educated level, 38% were secondary educated level and 10% was above university. Fifty percent of exporters with secondary level education are using computer, while 89% of university educated exporters are using computer, meanwhile 44% of exporters with secondary level education using internet, while 78% of university educated exporters using internet. The analysis also shows that 61% of exporters with university level education are using E-mail regularly, while 38% of secondary educated exporters using E-mail regularly. The exporters whose education level was secondary, 29% of them practicing electronic trade, while 71% of them did not know electronic trade or were not heard about electronic trade before, while the exporters whose education level was university and above were nearly all knew electronic trade. The regression analysis revealed that education level, computer literacy, using internet and having electronic mail were the most important factors that significantly affecting practicing of electronic trade. Therefore, using computer and using internet are considered as the key factors that affect the practicing electronic trade. Also, education is considered as the main factor affecting using computer, and this implies that improvement of education increases the ability of using computer. The results also show that trade performance of traders practicing electronic trade is better than traditional traders. In quality controlling, there is no large differences between traders. The study concluded that the electronic trade can lead to an increase of exports and imports in the country, but there are many problems constraining it such as low knowledge of using computer, the acute absence of network security to increase confidence between traders, and the shortage of electronic banking. The study recommended the removal of this constraints affecting practicing electronic trade through improvement of computer knowledge, increasing internet facilities and knowledge, increasing the awareness of traders for the advantages of electronic trade, and free taxes of technological imports.
