Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Truong Canh Tuyen said Hau Giang appreciates the SGF’s proposal of investing in clean agricultural product farms, which matches the province’s promotion of clean farming and agricultural restructuring.

Basing on the SGF’s proposal, local authorities will encourage residents in the places where the organisation plans to build such farms to practice farming according to standards.

Kwak Busung, SGF Chief Representative in Vietnam, said in the first phase, they will cultivate new rice varieties in pilot areas and then train local farmers on farming techniques. Meanwhile, greenhouses will be built and high technologies will be applied to grow clean vegetables and other crops.

He said the model has been successful in many places. However, it has to generate high profits for farmers so as to gain their trust. The area under this model should only be expanded after local residents realise its effectiveness.

The SGF wants to work more with Hau Giang to meet production standards set by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, he added.

High technologies and techniques are set to be applied on 10 hectares of farmland in Long My and Phung Hiep districts, where a new village project is also piloted.

The new village project has been implemented in Long My and Phung Hiep for five years during which, the SGF assisted the two districts in building two cultural centres, setting up two cooperatives, providing farming tools for agricultural cooperatives, and piloting the cultivation of one hectare of high-quality rice.
