Considering the developing trend of starting-up greenhouse businesses in Golestan province, it is very important to study the effective factors of resilience in these businesses. The purpose of this study is to identify the factors affecting the resilience of greenhouse businesses in Golestan province. In this regard, a survey research method was used to collect the required information. The target population includes all 542 of greenhouse owners in Golestan Province. The samples were selected by multi-stage cluster sampling method from 7 Counties, and the information was collected through 221 questionnaires. The validity of the questionnaire was evaluated and confirmed based on the opinion of experts and its reliability was calculated by Cronbach's alpha. Exploratory factor analysis method was used to identify the factors affecting the resilience of greenhouse businesses. The results showed that the five factors titled decision-making and planning ability, hope for the future, institutional supports, job security and opportunism and competitiveness explain 76.47% of the total variance of the factors affecting the resilience of greenhouse businesses. The results of compare mean tests (Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis) showed that the level of resilience is higher among male respondents, non-natives and respondents who depend on local market to purchase inputs. Overall, the extracted factors in this study provide a key framework that can combine the role of internal factors such as managerial and entrepreneurial skills with external factors such as institutional support and job security in improving resilience to be used in policy making of business resilience promotion.
