|Long An: Enterprises build '5-star hotels' for fruits||Long An: Enterprises build '5-star hotels' for fruits|
These days, Cass Fruit and Vegetable Preservation Co., Ltd. (located in Hoa Binh Industrial Park (IP) in Thu Thua district, Long An Province) has completed the final stages to operate the smart agricultural storage system in early June 2020.
With Cass, the fruit will be preserved for a longer time, without affecting on their quality
Director of Cass Company - Quach Thi Le Chan shared that Cass is the first agricultural storage system in Long An as well as Vietnam using fully automatic gas adjustment technology. Cass stands for Controlled Atmosphere Storage System - a storage system in a controlled atmosphere. This is a technology that preserves clean, non-chemical agricultural products, but only changes the atmospheric composition of the warehouse (reducing oxygen, increasing nitrogen and CO2) to reduce the respiration of agricultural products.
Cass assembled cold storage system
At the same time, this technology can destroy or inhibit the growth of microorganisms that are harmful to agricultural products, maintaining the nutritional content of fruits and vegetables. In particular, this preservation environment helps fruits prevent the destruction of bacteria, avoid cross-contamination, prolong the shelf life of agricultural products from 2 to 9 months after harvest. Cass is like a "5-star hotel" for fruits.
Control cabinet in cold storage
As planned, Cass has 2 construction stages. Currently, the construction company completes phase 1 of the warehouse system with 2 rooms, each room has 9 floors with a capacity of 4,000 pallets, equivalent to 3,000 tons. Accordingly, room 1 is from 4 - 6 degrees Celsius and room 2 is from 10 - 12 degrees Celsius, suitable for all fruits in Vietnam. Phase 1 is now complete and ready to receive fruits for storage.
After phase 1, Cass continues to build phase 2 of a service chain that resembles a fruit exchange between buyers and sellers. This place will have a larger ground of 5,000 square meters to concentrate large cargo sources with pre-processing, washing, heat treatment, sample quality testing, packaging and so on to serve traders. The enterprise gathers goods to serve big orders, stabilizing sources of goods for domestic business and export.
Cass is operated via computer software by staff
According to Le Chan, the atmosphere adjustment technology - CA has been used by many advanced countries in the world but in Vietnam it has not been used before due to its high price, people cannot work in an oxygen-free environment. Therefore, the company has combined to use robot systems to overcome this drawback. Robots are used to replace humans in storage, retrieval via the use of control software and store information for containers or packages quickly and accurately. Although Cass is a "5-star hotel" for fruits due to its use of most modern technology, minimizing manual labor, Cass promises to be an attractive destination for farmers, traders and businesses with competitive prices, not different from other cold storage systems in Vietnam.
Sharing more about the reason why Cass was built in Long An IP, Ms. Le Chan was excited that Long An had a favorable position because it easily connects the Mekong River Delta region and Ho Chi Minh City. It is easy to concentrate fruits as well as distribute to the domestic market and export. In particular, this is also a very effective solution to overcome the situation of "good harvest, bad price" that often happens in agriculture, especially fruit.
With Cass, fruits will be preserved for a long time to create an active position in price negotiations, not to be forced to sell, nor to worry about damage while waiting for sales. This technology also significantly reduces post-harvest losses, reduces the use of preservative chemicals that threaten user health, increases competitiveness, and meets the rigorous storage standards of high-quality markets./.

|Long An: Profit of 2019 - 2020 Winter-Spring crop increases despite many difficulties||Long An: Profit of 2019 - 2020 Winter-Spring crop increases despite many difficulties|
On April 9, Long An Provincial People's Committee held an online conference on the preliminary review of the 2019-2020 Winter-Spring crop, the implementation of the 2020 Summer-Autumn plan and forestry production in 2020. Vice Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh chaired the conference.
Vice Chairman of Long An Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh highly appreciates the results of the 2019-2020 Winter-Spring crop, despite many difficulties
According to the Agriculture sector, climate change, early drought and saltwater intrusion caused water shortage, in the Winter-Spring crop 2019-2020, in the Southern districts, the productivity of about 3,800 hectares of rice was reduced from 30-60 percent, 990 hectares completely damaged (in 2 districts of Thu Thua and Tan Tru). In the 2019-2020 Winter-Spring crop, the whole province sowed about 227,235 hectares, reaching 99.98 percent of the plan and 98 percent over the same period (down 4,733 hectares). Due to drought, salinity and lack of irrigation water, the districts of Thu Thua, Tan Tru, Can Duoc and Tan An city actively stopped planting this crop; some areas converted to other crops.
The area of the 2019-2020 Winter-Spring crop decreased but productivity and price increased, so the profit increased. The average profit was estimated at 15-20 million VND per hectare, an increase of more than 2-3 million VND per hectare compared to the 2018-2019 Winter-Spring crop.
The whole province harvested 226,245 hectares of Winter-Spring rice; dry productivity was estimated at 64.6 quintals per hectare, an increase of 1.2 quintals per hectare; the output was estimated at 1.46 million tons, down about 9,200 tons compared to the 2018-2019 Winter-Spring crop (due to the reduction of area and loss of 990 hectares), reaching 54 percent of the plan in 2020 (2.7 million tons).
Besides, the planting of some other crops was relatively stable; in 2019, the whole province changed over 2,500 hectares of rice to other crops (dragon fruit, jackfruit, coconut, grapefruit, durian, and so on).
Despite many difficulties, both rice productivity and price increase in the 2019-2020 Winter-Spring crop
In order to achieve a rice production of over 2.7 million tons in 2020, the province plans to sow about 217,640 hectares with an output of over 1 million tons in the Summer-Autumn crop; about 47,200 hectares with an output of over 222,000 tons in the Fall-Winter crop.
As scheduled, the 2020 Summer-Autumn calendar schedule consists of 3 phases, in which, the first phase is from April 15 to April 25, the second phase is from May 13 to May 23, and the third phase is from June 13 to June 25. In order to avoid damage, the areas that cannot control water sources do not sow before the rainy season. Rice varieties should be grown in accordance with changes in water resources and saline intrusion such as OM 4900, OM 5451, Sticky rice, Dai Thom 8, RVT, Nang Hoa 9, ST, OM 6976, etc. In areas where alum and saltwater are affected, rice varieties such as AS996, OM 5451, OM 6976, etc. should be used.
At the conference, Vice Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Pham Van Canh highly appreciated the direction of the Agriculture sector and the local authorities so that the Winter-Spring crop had positive results in the face of drought and saltwater intrusion. In order to reach the production target of 2020, functional branches and localities should closely monitor hydro-meteorology and saline intrusion; focus on overcoming the adverse weather conditions to apply intensive farming and disease control; change the structure of crops in accordance with production conditions.
In addition, it is recommended to implement the project of high-tech application of agriculture in association with the restructuring of the agriculture sector to increase profits, improve efficiency and quality of agricultural products. In the Summer-Autumn crop, localities should follow the seasonal calendar. In particular, localities that have sown Summer-Autumn rice seedlings early should focus on directing and closely monitoring pests and diseases./.
