Tan Tru: More than 1,800 hectares of Winter-Spring rice sown out of seasonal scheduleTan Tru: More than 1,800 hectares of Winter-Spring rice sown out of seasonal schedule
Compared to the plan for the Winter-Spring (WS) rice crop of 2020-2021, many farmers in Tan Tru district of Long An province sow seeds 10-40 days later than the seasonal schedule. This is expected to cause serious damage if the drought and salinity occur abnormally.

Based on the forecast of saline intrusion in the dry season 2020-2021, most people in the southern districts of the province such as Tan Tru, Can Duoc, Can Giuoc, Thu Thua, and so on are recommended to sow early or switch to short-term crops. However, up to the present, many farmers in Tan Tru district continue to sow WS rice 2020-2021 despite the time of sowing according to the recommended schedule.

Tan Binh commune has the highest area of sowing out of seasonal schedule with over 470 hectares. Most of the rice areas sown out of seasonal schedule are from 10-20 days old, the rice varieties selected for sowing are IR50404, Nang Hoa, Dai Thom 8, etc.

Many areas of Winter-Spring rice sown out of seasonal schedule are at risk of damage if drought and salinity occur

In the WS crop 2019-2020, the family of Ms. Le Thu Thuy, living in Binh Tay hamlet, Tan Binh commune, sowed 1.5 hectares of Nang Hoa rice. Thanks to the amount of water from the Nhut Tao irrigation system and the Nhi Thanh Water Station, Thu Thua district, her family's rice is not affected by drought and salinity. Therefore, this year, after harvesting the Autumn-Winter crop, Ms. Thuy decided to continue to sow the WS crop, although the local agriculture sector recommends not to sow. "Currently, the amount of water stored in the Nhut Tao irrigation system is still quite a lot, so I decided to breed the new crop. I think the drought and salinity will not affect my family's rice this year as last year" - Ms. Thuy shared.

In Binh Trinh Dong commune, Mr. Le Thanh Hoai, living in Binh Hoa hamlet, has just sown the WS crop for about 10 days. He explained the reason for the late sowing, as follows: "Because my field is deep inside, from plowing to harvesting rice all happened simultaneously with the surrounding households. In this case, they sowed the seedlings late, so I had to sow the seedlings later".

Chairman of the People's Committee of Binh Trinh Dong commune - Nguyen Hong Dung said that in the WS crop 2020-2021, the whole commune sowed over 370 hectares, of which nearly 200 hectares were sowing outside of the seasonal schedule. Some villagers did not comply with the recommendations and conducted 3 crops. In the past year, in order to take initiative in water sources for production, the commune has dredged and salvaged water hyacinths in inland canals and ditches in the area. In addition, the commune also organizes seminars to recommend and mobilize people to sow seeds according to the seasonal schedule, select varieties and convert plants suitably.

According to information from the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of Tan Tru district, in the WS crop 2020-2021, the whole district has seeded over 3,200 hectares, of which over 1,800 hectares are sown out of seasonal schedule. The area of sowing late, rice is only 10-40 days old. Meanwhile, the salinity on the main rivers in the district is increasing and most of the sluices for preventing saline have been closed, the amount of water stored in inland canals and ditches will begin to decrease rapidly, so this rice area is at high risk of being affected and damaged.

Head of the Division of Agriculture and Rural Development of Tan Tru district - Dang Van Tay Lo said that because the rainfall at the beginning of the 2020 season is not evenly distributed, the farmers' sowing will be affected. Along with that, after harvesting the Autumn-Winter rice crop, the farmers realize that the amount of water stored in the inner field canals and ditches is still abundant, many of them are subjective and continue to sow.

"The district agriculture sector has issued documents to coordinate communes and towns to recommend that people comply with seasonal calendars, absolutely not sow seeds after December 5, 2020. However, many people still do not comply with the recommendations and voluntarily sow seeds outside of the seasonal schedule. For these areas, the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has directed, asked the district Agriculture sector to survey and hold specific data to take these areas out of the support if drought, salinity have happened and influence. Currently, in addition to promoting propaganda and recommending people not to continue sowing the WS crop, the district Agriculture sector also regularly checks the salinity situation on the main rivers to promptly inform the people. Hopefully, this drought, salinity will not be as severe and impactful as the previous years" - Mr. Dang Van Tay Lo added.

From the beginning of January 2021, salinity has appeared on the provincial rivers such as Rach Cat, Vam Co, Vam Co Dong, Vam Co Tay, and Tra river. Facing the above situation, the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development requested the People's Committees of the Southern districts and Tan An city to direct local specialized agencies to regularly monitor and update the water quality situation on the website for fighting against natural disasters of the province and on reports and warnings about drought, water shortage and saltwater intrusion of specialized hydrometeorology agencies such as the Southern Institute of Water Resources Research, and the Long An Hydrometeorology Station in order to promptly inform and widely propagate to people on district and commune radio stations about the water quality situation on rivers and in the field. At the same time, it is recommended that people do not take water in areas that are already salty, take advantage of water, store water in ponds and fields when saline water has not yet penetrated inland canals; use water in an economical and efficient manner, avoid waste and polluting water sources, in order to ensure adequate supply of irrigation water for safe production and daily life.

Because, Vietnam is a brilliant candidate when it is located in the most dynamically developed region in the world and has good disease control. If the time before the epidemic, on average each month, the company only produced from 2.5 to 2.8 million products, now, the company produces 3-3.5 million products/month to meet the demand. customer demand. To be able to meet the orders well for customers, the company has recruited 200 more workers, bringing the total number of workers to more than 570 people.

There are difficulties and limitations

Site clearance is considered as a key and breakthrough activity in 2019 but results are not meet the requirements. Some basic construction works and projects in industrial zones and clusters in Can Duoc, Can Giuoc and Duc Hoa districts, Tan An city, etc. have still faced difficulties.

In the first 6 months, the implementation of procedures for planning major investment projects was slow. Tan An city ring road and the road connecting Ho Chi Minh City - Long An - Tien Giang provinces were behind schedule. In addition, the management of land, urban order and environmental pollution control were not really good, especially in urban, residential areas, industrial zones and clusters of key economic areas of the province, said the Chairman Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can.

At this time, African swine fever negatively affected the livestock sector. Director of Department of Agriculture and Rural Development - Nguyen Thanh Truyen asked local authorities to actively prepare equipment to prevent the spread of epidemic.

It is necessary to drastically perform key tasks

According to the Chairman of the Provincial People's Committee - Tran Van Can, the economy of the province in the past 6 months maintained development and achieved a high economic growth thanks to the efforts of local authorities at all level, branches and localities. To achieve the target of economic growth in 2019 (9.6 percent), leaders of departments, agencies and localities continue to drastically implement the compensation, site clearance and resettlement under the direction of Provincial Standing Committee.

At the same time, specialized inspection must be strengthened in order to promptly detect and handle violations; proactively review and propose the slow and non-implementation of investment projects; and drastically handle unlicensed projects.

Department of Planning and Investment continues to assume responsibility and coordinate with relevant functional agencies and localities to review infrastructure investment projects of industrial zones and clusters as well as direct investment projects in the province to speed up progress of infrastructure investment.

At the meeting

Department of Agriculture and Rural Development focuses on preventing African swine fever; implementing the high-tech agricultural program in association with restructuring agriculture as planned; establishing typical cooperatives; and improving the rate of clean water use in the province to reach at least 40 percent in 2019.

Transportation not only becomes more convenient but it is also easy to carry goods and agricultural products, then traffic accidents are also reduced. The lives of households on both sides of the road have changed. Business and trade have also grown".
