|Long An VnSAT project helps farmers increase profits and reduce production costs||Long An VnSAT project helps farmers increase profits and reduce production costs|
Vietnam Sustainable Agriculture Transformation (VnSAT) Project in Vietnam opens a promising direction and brings positive results, it not only helps farmers to save production costs, increase profits and rice quality but also creates safe agricultural products and protect the environment.
Farmers in Hung Thanh commune, Tan Hung district visit rice fields growing well after being sown more than 10 days
Developing rice production with "3-to-decrease, 3-to-increase" and "1-must-do, 5-to-decrease"
Long An, one of eight provinces in the Mekong River Delta, has been selected to participate in the VnSAT project in period 2015-2020. The project is implemented in 23 communes of 4 districts including Tan Hung, Vinh Hung, Tan Thanh, Moc Hoa and Kien Tuong town, with a total investment of VND 289 billion and an area of about 49,500 hectares, with 25,000 households participating.
After more than 3 years of implementation, together with the investment in essential construction items, the project focuses on transferring rice production processes under "3-to-reduce, 3-to-increase" and "1-must-do, 5-to-decrease" through technical training sessions and constructing demonstration sites, linking in value chains from production to consumption, to increase farmers' income.
Up to now, the Project has organized 294 technical training courses on "3-to-decrease, 3-to-increase" and 170 classes on "1-must-do, 5-to-decrease"; implementing 13 rice demonstration sites on "3-to-decrease, 3-to-increase", 21 rice demonstration sites on "1-must-do, 5-to-decrease"; building many large fields associated with product consumption; complete farmers' organizations with 26 cooperatives. Most cooperatives are able to improve their operation capacity, increase production scale to over 500 hectares; some cooperatives associated with enterprises in production and consumption of agricultural products. At the same time, the project also focused on supporting investment in renovation and construction of essential infrastructure for production, especially rural transport works, on-farm works, irrigation canals and pumping stations. In addition, the project also supports cooperatives to invest to purchase equipment and machinery such as transplanting machines, rice drying ovens, building offices, cooperatives' agricultural warehouses, and so on.
Highlights of cooperatives participating in VNSAT project are that farmers significantly reduced the amount of seed sown, fertilizers, and pesticides, thereby they reduce production costs and increase profits. "Before participating in VnSAT project, farmers sow rice from 140-160 kilos per hectare, using fertilizers of about 400-500 kilos per hectare in common fields, spraying pesticides from 4 -6 times per crop. After attending training courses of "3-to-decrease, 3-to-increase", "1-must-do, 5-to-decrease", farmers actively produce certified rice seeds with an average seeding quantity of under 100 kilos per hectare; The amount of fertilizers of all kinds does not exceed 300 kilos per hectare. The number of sprays of pesticides also decreased to 2-3 times per crop"- said Pham Van Be Mot, Deputy Director of Hung Phu Agricultural Cooperative in Vinh Hung district.
Promoting support for farmers
One of the important criteria in improving profits and reducing production costs is to successfully apply the rice production process according to "3-to-decrease, 3-to-increase", "1-must-do, 5-to-decrease", in which reducing seed sowing is the decisive factor, because thick sowing will waste seeds, fertilizers and pesticides so the production cost is high. When the seeding density is appropriate, input costs decrease and then profits increase.
The provincial agricultural sector advocates to increase production and technical support to well implement the rice production process following "3-to-decrease, 3-to-increase", "1-must-do, 5-to-decrease"; raising awareness of producing clean agricultural products for farmers; training to improve the capacity of agricultural technical staff of cooperatives, creating conditions for cooperatives and enterprises to access capital sources. Also, Long An continues to construct infrastructure investment projects for 5 cooperatives in the project area in phase 1 and 4 cooperatives in phase 2; focusing on supporting the construction of projects of key infrastructure projects, approved equipment for rice production in the project area.
Deputy Head of Division of Crop Production, Plant Protection and Quality Control, Deputy Director of the Project Management Unit of Long An VnSAT - Le Phuoc Sach shared: "In parallel with supporting the transfer of scientific-technical progress, infrastructure investment and equipment will enhance the reorganization of production towards the direction of "large-scale rice field", linking farmers from cooperative groups, consolidating and establishing new cooperatives to ensure the operational capacity of the cooperative management board to comply with the Law on Cooperatives. This allows strong mechanization in production, saving time and labor costs, reducing initial investment costs and improving market access. "
Thus, over 3 years of implementation, VnSAT project has brought about its effectiveness, especially economic efficiency. The farmers' life is improved due to rice-growing, thereby it contributes to changing the appearance of the provincial agricultural sector./.

|Clean production for safe products||Clean production for safe products|
In the past years, Long An agricultural sector actively propagated and instructed farmers about clean production to create safe products, increase productivity, output, quality as well as meet market demand, towards sustainable and environmentally-friendly farming.
Meeting market demand
Currently, the use of chemicals in cultivation and animal husbandry negatively affects consumers' health. Therefore, the agricultural sector recommends that farmers use pesticides effectively and not to use banned substances to ensure food safety.
For vegetable cultivation, functional branches and localities implement several clean production models such as melon production model in the net house based on Israeli technology at Tam Nong Viet Cooperative (Can Giuoc district, Long An province). Accordingly, the melon is fertilized in combination with drip irrigation according to the process and not using pesticides.
Clean production to meet market demand
According to the director of Tam Nong Viet Cooperative - Dinh Bat Quy, at the beginning of 2018, he invested over 400 million VND to build a net house with an automatic watering system and tried to plant more than 1,000 square meters of Thailand origin melon.
He said: "From planting to harvesting, it takes 65 days with 4 crops per year. The productivity of 1,000 square meters of application of Israeli technology is 3 tons, the average price is 45,000 VND per kilogram, the profit is over 150 million VND. At present, I am expanding the model to 1 hectare of clean melon. Planting melon in net houses brings many benefits such as preventing rain and insects, reducing production costs, etc. Besides, because of not using pesticides (only using natural biological products), the products are trusted by consumers. Clean melon of the cooperative has been consumed in the market in and outside the province."
Director of Phuoc Hoa Safe Vegetable Cooperative (Can Duoc district, Long An province) - Kieu Anh Dung said: "The cooperative has 42 members with an area of 15 hectares. Our products have safety certification. Every day, the cooperative consumes about 2.5 tons of vegetables. We also invested in a net house of hydroponic vegetable production with an area of 500 square meters. Currently, the vegetable products provide to the market in and outside the province as well as 2 stores of the cooperatives (in Ward 2 market, Tan An city and Thanh Hoa market, Thanh Hoa district). In addition, we also invested in seeding machine and filtering water systems with the amount of more than 150 million VND."
In order to produce clean products, the province carried out a high-tech agricultural production in association with restructuring agriculture project. Up to now, the province has over 13,364 hectares of high technology applications on rice, reaching 66.82 percent of the plan; nearly 1,446 hectares of high-tech applications on vegetables, reaching 72 percent of the plan; about 1,634 hectares of high technology applied dragon fruit, reaching 81.7 percent of the plan.
By 2020, the province tries to have 4 high-tech agricultural production areas in association with agricultural restructuring. Accordingly, there are 20,000 hectares of rice, 2,000 hectares of dragon fruit, 2,000 hectares of vegetables and 5,000 beef cattle with 1-2 agricultural businesses applying high technology.
Clean production to meet market demand
Head of the provincial Sub-Department of Cultivation, Plant Protection and Agricultural Product Quality Control - Nguyen Van Cuong said: "The province has focused on building agricultural chains to contribute to the implementation of safe supply chains of agricultural, forestry and fishery products; control product quality, ensure food safety; link product distribution in the provincial market. At the same time, this activity also builds the brand and creates consumers' belief in safety chain products; form a habit of using safe food. Up to now, the province has built 12 distribution chains of clean products (vegetables, rice, chicken, pork, etc.); coordinated with Ho Chi Minh City Food Safety Management Board to survey, build and award 9 certificates of participation in the chain; and organized 14 safe selling places in the province.
"In addition, the sector also strengthens inspection and supervision. In the first 6 months of 2019, the Sub-Department checked 454 samples. In which, 452 samples meet the required standards, 2 samples were contaminated with borax. In testing food safety criteria, 1 in 52 samples contaminated with Benzoate (Cao Thi Huyen household business, Tan Tru town, Tan Tru district). In the evaluation of 105 establishments that produce and trade in agricultural products, 17 ones were achieved grade A, 88 ones were ranked grade B. In addition, 48,906 households signed a commitment to secure production, increasing more than 28,000 households compared to the same period in 2018 "- Mr. Cuong added.
According to Deputy Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh, the agricultural sector and local authorities continue to inform about the harms of using pesticides in the wrong process, the harms of unsafe food; comply with "4 right" on the use of pesticides, veterinary drugs; benefits of building safe food supply chains, applying good manufacturing practices (GAP, GMP). The sector also focuses on expanding, developing a model of the safe food supply chain; closely connect managers, scientists, farmers, businesses and cooperatives; continues to coordinate with the Ho Chi Minh City Food Safety Management Board to build a safe food supply chain.
In addition, the sector strengthens state management on market management, product quality and standard to create a fair competitive environment; promotes trade promotion activities, supports market information; manages and uses effectively geographical indications, collective marks and brands that have been built and protected in association with value chain development. Besides, the sector focuses on propagating to raise awareness, responsibility, promoting the role of the people in fighting, detecting and denouncing violations of agricultural materials management, and so on.
Particularly, the department continues to support establishments on the certification of good agricultural production practice (GAP) to ensure safe products for consumers; re-inspects 100 percent of C-graded establishments and thoroughly handles them; organizes trade promotion, production and consumption connection as well as promotes safe products that are certified./.

Long An Provincial Party Committee has just held an online conference to evaluate the results after 3 years of implementing the High-tech Agricultural Development Program in association with restructuring agriculture.
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee - Pham Van Ranh highly appreciated the achievements after 3 years of implementing the program
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh; Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can co-chaired the conference.
After 3 years of implementation, the High-tech agricultural development program has achieved initial results. In particular, the propaganda has contributed to positively change the awareness of cadres, civil servants and people.
Many highly effective models have been replicated. Promotion of trade investment and food safety monitoring has been strengthened to confirm products in safe food supply chains. Many contracts to supply clean products to distributors inside and outside the province have been signed, contributing to the consumption of products for farmers.
After 3 years of implementation, the High-tech agricultural development program has achieved initial results
The project has implemented many models of advanced technology in the production of over 18,500 hectares (15,075 hectares of rice, 1,476 hectares of vegetables, 2,077 hectares of dragon fruits). Up to now, 43 cooperatives and 151 cooperative groups have been established in the areas where the project has been implemented and 16 pilot cooperatives have been built.
In addition, trade promotion, dialogue and support of cooperative groups, cooperatives and businesses in the production area have been well implemented, contributing to solving many difficulties and obstacles. The province has established 12 safe food supply chains on vegetables, chicken, rice, and pork; 14 locations that sell safe food in districts and Tan An city. By the end of 2019, the province plans to build 13 more locations selling safe food. For the beef cattle raising area, the province has built 2 cooperatives and 15 cooperative groups, 10 models of high-tech applications and supported 181 cows.
According to the Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Thanh Truyen, the project has faced many difficulties. To be more specific, the clean land fund for attracting investment has been insufficient. Some high-tech application models have been initially effective, but farmers have faced difficulties in reciprocal capital for replication. Some cooperatives and cooperatives have been still weak in both human resources and finance. The connection between production and product consumption in some models has been limited. The technical infrastructure for agricultural production has been focused on investment but many localities have not yet met the requirements, etc.
Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can gives a speech at the conference
Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can said: "Farmers play a key role in the implementation of the High-tech agricultural development program in association with restructuring agriculture. Enterprises are the venue in connecting product consumption. Therefore, in order to implement the project effectively, it is necessary to deeply and broadly propagate to raise awareness for people to participate in cooperatives and cooperative groups as well as comply with cooperative regulations. Therefore, people have produced effectively and no longer depended on the support of the State".
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, Chairman of the Provincial People's Council - Pham Van Ranh highly appreciated the achievements after 3 years of implementing the Program, contributing to the transformation of plants and animals vigorously in the province.
In the coming time, he asked the branches and local authorities to intensify the propaganda of Resolution 08 of the Provincial Party Committee on developing high-tech applications associated with agricultural restructuring; regularly hold dialogues with businesses and cooperatives to solve difficulties; strive to complete the construction of 4 typical cooperatives to replicate the program by the end of 2019; focus on trade promotion for the province's key agricultural products; and effectively implement mechanisms and policies to support the implementation of the project./.

On September 6, Long An Provincial Party Committee Secretary - Pham Van Ranh chaired a dialogue with cooperatives and beef breeders in Duc Hoa district in the program of developing hi-tech applications in association with restructuring agriculture.
At the dialogue
Leaders of the provincial People's Committee, departments, branches, localities, representatives of Hoa Khanh Dong cooperative and farmers attended the meeting.
At the dialogue, representatives of cooperatives and farmers expressed their opinions on the process of production, breeding and consumption of beef cattle. According to the farmers, at present, breeding beef cattle is still very difficult, farmers do not have much information about high-quality cows, nutrition and the breeding methods.
Besides, the State's support policies for farmers are quite limited. Specifically, farmers are not supported electricity prices; the process of approaching policies to support livestock credit and consumption markets is still difficult, etc.
According to the Secretary of Long An Provincial Party Committee - Pham Van Ranh, farmers should change backward farming methods
Cooperatives and farmers requested authorities to provide specific information on the annual cooperative support policies on the quantity of bull semen, disinfectants for stable and high-yield grass; support the cooperative access businesses to establish sustainable value chains; have policies to support electricity prices, loans, farming techniques, and so on.
Representatives of local authorities and functional agencies answered questions of cooperatives and farmers.
According to the Secretary of Long An Provincial Party Committee - Pham Van Ranh, developing high-tech application agriculture in association with restructuring agriculture is one of two breakthrough programs of this term. In particular, beef cattle are selected in high-tech applications. Farmers should link with cooperatives, cooperative groups as well as change backward farming methods.
He asked the authorities and functional agencies to intensify the propaganda of supporting policies; improve cooperatives to develop dynamically and proactively, not relying on State support. Farmers should join cooperatives to work together and have favorable conditions in breeding and consuming beef cattle; invite businesses to invest in the high-tech beef farming areas of the province and support the consumption for farmers, etc.
Farmers express their opinions
Since 2016, Long An province has implemented a project to develop high-tech applications associated with restructuring the agriculture sector; selected 3 major crops (rice, dragon fruit, vegetables) and beef cattle to focus on development. In particular, the province has strived to build high-tech beef cattle breeding areas in Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts with a total herd of over 5,000 heads by 2020.
Up to now, the province has established 10 pilot models of beef cattle breeding applying high technology and advanced technology in the field of nutrition, veterinary, environment; gradually applied a good husbandry management procedure according to VietGAHP standards in 9 communes of Duc Hoa district and 4 communes of Duc Hue district. The State supported 157 cows, 105 machines (grass shredders, mixers and mowers), over 3,000 doses of high-quality beef cattle semen; and organizes training courses, technical advice for farmers, etc./.
