Vietnam: Thanh Hoa growers step up horti game to boost ag production

The south central province of Thanh Hoa has studied and applied scientific and technological advances into agricultural production and actively engaged in the fourth Industrial Revolution to serve socio-economic development in a fast and sustainable way.

Considering science-technology as one of three breakthroughs to concretise the Resolution adopted at the 19th provincial Party Congress, the local authorities at all levels have worked to make science-technology a locomotive to improve productivity and products’ quality.

An array of large-scale advanced production models have been developed across the province, bringing higher economic efficiency. More than 34,400 hectares of land have been zoned off for large scale production with the application of state-of-the-art technologies, while over 80,000 hectares of crops are being cultivated under value chain.

Thanks to the advanced technologies, the crops earn local farmers some 200 million VND (8,100 USD) per hectare per year, or 2.5-3 times higher than those planted under traditional method. Meanwhile, animal farming models bring in 1.5-2 billion VND per farm per year, doubling that of traditional ones.

Thanh Hoa province has paid due attention to deploying digital technology in processing and post-harvest management, and developing QR codes to facilitate the traceability of farm products. This is a bold step to promote farmers’ participation in the value chain, helping them gain benefits during the agricultural and rural development process.

Regarding plantation, biological techniques have been used to develop new varieties to meet the market demand. An array of high-quality fruit and vegetable producers have developed net house and greenhouse models on a total area of more than 170 hectares.
