The northern province of Bac Giang is stepping up the application of science and technology in agricultural production to improve its value and increase farmers’ income. The province hopes that its quality rice area will reach 55,000 hectares and the output will be nearly 357,500 tonnes, meeting both domestic consumption and export demands.
The total area of fruit trees will be about 55,000 hectares, with a focus on growing lychee, citrus (orange, pomelo), longan, custard apple, pineapple, and guava following VietGAP and GlobalGAP standards.
By 2030, the province will also expand its vegetable production area to 28,000 hectares, which can produce an output of about 554,400 tonnes. Of the total, the area of safe vegetables grown according to VietGAP standards will be 12,500 hectares, with an output of around 272,500 tonnes.
At the same time, the locality will maintain the breeding of 1-1.2 million pigs and 22-25 million poultry. To that end, Bac Giang will promote the transfer and application of scientific and technological advances in agricultural, forestry, and fishery production. Accordingly, the province focuses on applying good agricultural practices (VietGAP, GlobalGAP), clean production technology, and biotechnology; developing organic agriculture; ensuring food safety and hygiene; and protecting the environment.
