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./.

|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./.

|MOET’s decision brings death to a series of study branches ||MOET’s decision brings death to a series of study branches |
The decision by the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) to not allow universities to enroll students under the B-group (students have to take exams in mathematics, chemistry and biology) for several training branches has caused surprise and opposition from many universities
move, which is described as aiming to tighten the enrolment of students
to universities, has not only surprised universities but also caused
shock to several millions of students who are going to attend final
exams and university entrance exams in June and July.
technology, which is considered the most fashionable and hottest
training branch and proves to be the choice of many students, is one of
the study branches which will not enroll students under the B-group.
training division of the Hung Vuong People Founded University said that
it received a lot of calls last week from students who asked why the
university does not enroll students under group B for several study
branches any more.
do not know how to explain it to students,” said Nguyen Thi Mong Binh,
Head of the Training Division under Hung Vuong University. We informed
in late-2008 that the university will enroll students under group B for
these study branches. “We had been sure that we could enroll students
under group B for those branches until we received the information
several days ago,” she added.
Van Hien People’s Founded University also said that it is still
awaiting the final decision from MOET on the university’s enrolment of
students under group B. Van Hien has been enrolling students under A, B,
C and D groups for psychology and sociology branches since 2007.
However, MOET has suddenly decided that the university will not enroll
students under B group any more.
Quoc Hop, Head of the Education Division under Van Hien University said
that in 2007, the university gave detailed explanation to MOET about
why the university needs to enroll students under group B for the two
branches. With the explanations, the university got the permission from
the ministry to enroll students under group B. However, the ministry has
decided that the enrolment of students under group B will not be
allowed after it got the nod before.
Xuan Phong, Deputy Headmaster of FPT University, argued that it is a
wrong decision to not allow enrolling students under group B for
information technology study branch.
said that information technology proves to link with many fields. IT
engineers will have to work in many fields, which require them to have
comprehensive knowledge in many fields, including biology.
It is clear that the sudden decision by MOET will affect the benefit of universities and students as well.
administration, finance and banking, and accountancy study branches
enroll 50% of total students. If MOET prohibits the university to enroll
students under B group, this will seriously affect the management and
training of the university,” said Mong Binh.
Phong said that the sudden decision without any informing in advance
proves to be the action MOET should not do because this will affect
students negatively. He said that many students have been preparing for
taking exams under group B for many years, and what will they have to do
if they are not allowed to take exams under group B any more? If they
still want to study information technology, they will have to take exams
under group A (mathematics, physics and chemistry), and in this case,
it is not sure that they will have enough time to prepare for this.
think education managers need to give reasonable answers before making
decision, as the decision will affect students’ benefit and the economic
development,” Phong said.
