Deputy Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Chi Thien measures salinity at sluices
Deputy Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Chi Thien said: "In general, this year, saline intrusion does not affect people's production as much as the dry season in 2019-2020, because of the agricultural sector and localities have proactively introduced many practical and effective solutions with the support of the people in the prevention of saline drought. Up to this point, the fresh water source still meets the production needs of the people well, but the people are not allowed to continue seeding in the third season, because if seeding, there will definitely be a shortage of water for production".
