Effectiveness from high-tech application on rice at Vinh Thuan CooperativeEffectiveness from high-tech application on rice at Vinh Thuan Cooperative
From 2016 until now, the production applied high technology on rice at Vinh Thuan Cooperative in Vinh Thuan commune, Vinh Hung district, Long An province has initially brought positive effectiveness.

Farmers visit.jpg

Farmers visit high-tech application model to level the field by laser beam 

Vinh Thuan Cooperative implemented a pilot model with a scale of 50 hectares including 6 participating households. These households are supported seeds with high quality, suitable to local consumption requirements, fertilizing according to rice growth and using organic fertilizer and improving soil to reduce chemical fertilizer.

According to an official of Vinh Hung district Farmer Association - Le Quoc Bon, this model helps to increase income for farmers. Although productivity is lower than that of mass-produced rice outside, the committed price is higher due to the quality assurance products and the requirements of enterprises.

The application of high-tech model brings many positive results. Technically, households use varieties of certified rice, sparse sowing (from 100-120 kilogram per hectare); apply  method of Integrated Pests Management (IPM); use green mushroom preparations to control brown planthoppers; fertilize according to rice growth; treat disease according to 4-right principle. 100 percent of farmers respond to the record of the field diary. On the dans of rice fields, flowers are planted to attract natural enemies and create a beautiful look for the fields.

Economically, the application of technical measures "1 must, 5 reduce", the application of synchronous mechanics in producing and linking enterprises to consume output products contributes to reduce average production costs to 1 - 1.5 million VND per hectare; profit increased by 5 - 6.5 million VND per hectare.

Additionally, uniform movement of the seed helps reduce pest pressure. The model is a core to replicate the high-tech application region, creating quality rice for export requirements.

Besides, the model also encountered some difficulties in implementation. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen propaganda; organizing practical tours and technical training for farmers; have mechanisms and policies to encourage and support farmers and enterprises to invest in agriculture and forestry. Simultaneously, building a large-scale field system to step by step establish the agricultural production regions and follow VietGAP process, contributing to improving the productivity and quality of agricultural products./.

In the first 6 months of 2019, the export turnover in Long An province is estimated at USD 2.92 billion, increasing to 15 percent over the same period in 2018 (increase to 20 percent). Besides, import turnover reached USD 2.2 billion, up 13.2 percent over the same period in 2018 (increase to 4 percent).

Dragon fruit is the most exported product of Long An province

At present, there are more than 800 enterprises participating in export and import in the whole province. These enterprises have exported to more than 120 countries and territories around the world. 

Export products include rice, cashew nuts, aquacuture products, dragon fruit, seedless lemon, leather shoes, textile products, mechanical products, electric wires - electric cables, agricultural machinery and equipment, plastic products, and so on.

Imported products mainly include textile and garment materials, chemicals, plastics, animal feed materials, machinery and equipment.

According to the general assessment, despite the growth, export turnover is slower than the same period in 2018. One of the reasons is the fluctuation of the world market and domestic enterprises, especially the inability to predict all risks in the trade of agricultural products exporters.

In addition, many countries are increasing technical barriers, quotas and requirements for quality and origin of goods. Therefore, the increase in export of the province is not as effective as expected. In addition, the province's export volume in light industry depends heavily on foreign invested enterprises (FDI). At present, the export turnover of the province still depends on FDI enterprises, accounting for about 70 percent.

In order to promote the export of goods, especially agricultural products, the province focuses on propagating the market regulations; provide list and process of using pesticides in agricultural production, encourage the production of VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards; and ensure food safety to enhance the competitiveness of Vietnamese agricultural products.

On the other hand, the province also focus on investment and trade promotion; seeking and expanding new markets besides traditional markets; contacting and mobilizing investment, especially investment promotion agencies and economic representatives of Vietnam in foreign countries./.

With high determination and great efforts, chairman of Chanh Viet Commerce and Investment Company Nguyen Van Hien and coworkers have turned the alum contaminated soil filled with mangrove trees and weeds into the largest lemon farm in the Mekong Delta.

Người-xây-chuỗi-giá-trị-cho-cây-chanh532018.jpg

Mr. Nguyen Van Hien (R), chairman of Chanh Viet Trade and Investment Company, introduces products made from seedless lemon of the company

Hien told that his main job is construction. Once he and some friends came to Ben Luc district and saw the fallow along Highway N2, they bought 30 hectares intending to build a small farm to take a rest at the weekend.

Afterwards, he decided to develop agriculture in the fallow but failed to find a suitable plant. After many times of visiting Southern Fruit Research Institute and Agriculture and Forestry University to get opinions from agricultural experts and learning experiences of farmers in the region, he decided to start with seedless lemon.

Organic farming method in association with export market has been chosen to increase product value.

In 2012, he and fellow-workers built a seedless lemon farming model according to new techniques in Thanh Loi commune, Ben Luc district. A slew of modern machines and lot of workers were mobilized to till the land, dig canals and build concrete road to facilitate production and traffic connectivity to surrounding areas.

The lemon farming area of Chanh Viet Company has reached 150 hectares and its products have been exported under the brand name of CHAVI.

When staring growing seedless lemon trees, Hien and co-workers abided by European technical standards. However that the volume of lemon meeting standards for export account for only 30-40 percent of output under that farming method. If selling the remaining volume in the domestic market, the value would be very low. That prompted Hien to study and take scientists assist to develop lemon products.

Lemon juice is the first product of his company, having been export to Japan. Other products such as beverage, lemon powder and lemon salt have been widely distributed locally and exported to Europe, Middle East and Southeast Asia nations, China and Taiwan (China).

The company has continued working with US Chapman University and Malaysian Universiti Putra to develop products from lemon.

According to Mr. Hien, it is necessary to have a strategy to build value chain from plants towards sustainable farming model to develop agriculture efficiently. Farmers or businesses must link up to scientists to create and improve value chain for agricultural products./.​
