Major investments in organic farms across Vietnam

VinEco invests USD 8.5 million for growing safe vegetable in 12 farms across the country and high-technology and organic farm in Tam Da, Haiphong city is one of them.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said yesterday that high-technology and organic farming would be crucial for the development of Vietnamese agriculture when touring Vingroup’s high-technology agricultural project in Tam Đa Commune, Hải Phňng City.

The VNĐ189 billion (US$8.5 million) project is among 12 farms developed by Vingroup’s subsidiary VinEco across the country growing safe vegetables.

The farm, covering 46ha, including an open-air area of over 28 ha, and a greenhouse area of 10.7ha, became operational early this year, growing 14 species of vegetables using no pesticides, with an average output of 250 tonnes per month.

The PM praised the model for increasing labour productivity and supplying the market with safe products.

The leader also lauded co-ordination between the company and local farmers, suggesting that it should be stepped up.

He reminded project insiders to observe their commitments, especially those on food safety, to ensure product quality.

VinEco should provide opportunities for those who were relocated for the project to enable them to earn substantial, stable incomes, the PM noted.

VinEco said it will grow vegetables and plants suitable with conditions in Hải Phňng for local consumption and export

Hải Phňng was the country’s third largest economic centre and a driving force for the north’s economy.
