Hau Giang, RoK organisation continue hi-tech farming cooperationFriday, October 26,2018
AsemconnectVietnam - The Mekong Delta province of Hau Giang will continue working with the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s organisation for agricultural technology transfer and trade (FACT) in forming agricultural production value chains, stated a local official.
Highlighting experience exchange and win-win cooperation between Hau Giang, FACT and involved businesses, Tuyen expected the sides to start production chains following their successful tests in 2017 and 2018.
In late May this year, FACT signed an agreement with Hau Giang to increase the use of biological products of the RoK for growing pineapple, pomelo and mango. Accordingly, the organisation will provide US$17,000 worth of 20 biological products to the locality.
In 2017, FACT ran a cooperation project with a village in the local Vinh Vien commune, Long My district, under which it supplied 13 biological products and some technological equipment for rice cultivation in two crops on an area of 14 hectares at a cost of US$9,000.
From October 25 to 27, three RoK companies are scheduled to run demonstrations of three machines for land levelling, automatic pesticide spraying, and fruit sorting based on weight.
On October 29 and 30, seven RoK companies will come to Hau Giang to visit a number of sites showcasing local products, looking for partnership opportunities in building value chains for key plants of the province.
