Deputy Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh asks farmers to apply new technologies to create quality products
After 4 years of implementation, the project has achieved some positive results. The province has established many pilot models of beef cattle farming with high technology applications. The models play an important role in the application of technologies in practice and have a great spread to farmers.
The role of cooperative groups and cooperatives has been increasingly asserted. Farmers have actively cooperated in farming, gradually change their old habits and boldly applied advanced techniques to production. Therefore, the production efficiency and income of members have been improved.
The project "Building high-tech concentrated beef growing area" has achieved some positive results
The province has established 10 pilot models; initially replicated in Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts; supported to provide 181 cows and 75 machines.
The province has granted VietGAHP certificates to 4 units (2 cooperatives, 1 cooperative group, 1 farm) and organized technical training courses for farmers; cooperated with Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry to consult and support members in reorganizing production.
However, the project still has had some obstacles in the implementation process such as the difficulties in the capital, the delay in disbursing capital for the model, the limitations in technical application, the weakness of cooperative managers, etc. In addition, farmers have been not interested in participating in the models; product underwriting cannot be implemented.
The cooperative groups, cooperatives, and farms are also received VietGAHP certificates
According to Deputy Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Dinh Thi Phuong Khanh, the sector would continue to coordinate with local authorities to implement the project as planned; focus on strengthening and improving the quality of cooperatives; achieve high efficiency in building pilot models; train and transfer new science and technology.
In addition, she asked farmers to actively change husbandry practices and apply new technologies to create quality products that meet the increasing market standards.
On this occasion, the cooperative groups, cooperatives, and farms in Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts were also received VietGAHP certificates./.
