|Long An: 4-year preliminary review meeting to implement project ‘Building high-tech concentrated beef growing area’||Long An: 4-year preliminary review meeting to implement project ‘Building high-tech concentrated beef growing area’|
On November 26, Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of Long An province, People's Committee of Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts held a 4-year preliminary review meeting to implement the project ‘Building high-tech concentrated beef farming area’ in the period of 2016 - 2019.
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./.

|Agricultural products that meet standards will be easier to consume||Agricultural products that meet standards will be easier to consume|
On May 8, Director of Long An Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc chaired the working session with some departments, local authorities, businesses and cooperatives to appraise the implementation of supply contracts with HCMC as well as discuss upcoming plans.
Mr. Le Minh Duc suggests businesses and cooperatives comply with the terms of the contract with partners
According to Mr. Le Minh Duc, in 2018, the Department of Industry and Trade actively supported businesses and cooperatives to participate in the connection between producers and the distribution system; connect with Ho Chi Minh City, provinces and cities throughout the country; participate in safe agricultural products market; promote consumption in Cambodia, etc. These activities contribute to solving the output for local agricultural products.
Up to now, businesses and cooperatives have had 153 contracts to supply agricultural products for businesses, supermarkets and retail shops in Ho Chi Minh City, Long An and Ben Tre provinces. In addition, Long An strives to connect with Nafood Joint Stock Company to consume dragon fruits for processing and export.
Up to now, businesses and cooperatives have had 153 contracts to supply agricultural products for businesses, supermarkets and retail shops
At the meeting, representatives of businesses and cooperatives talked about advantages and difficulties in connecting to consume goods. In particular, agricultural products have to meet the standards of food hygiene and safety, origin, geographical indications, and bar codes, and so on.
In addition, the trade connection also faces many difficulties because businesses and cooperatives can not directly sign commercial contracts with major businesses. They have to sell products through intermediaries with a high cost.
In the coming time, the Department continues to coordinate with related departments and agencies to connect businesses and cooperatives to new markets. The Department also focuses on cooperating with provinces and cities, especially HCMC to promote consumption of goods, especially agricultural products. The development of supply chain of safe agricultural products into supermarkets, trade centers, safe agriculture product stores is especially strengthened, said the Director of Department of Industry and Trade - Le Minh Duc.
Because agricultural products that meet standards will be easier to consume, Mr. Le Minh Duc also suggested businesses and cooperatives comply with the terms of the contracts with partners on quality and appearance of products./.
