Edor longan, with seeds imported from Thailand, provides farmers with greater economic efficiency than other varieties due to its significantly high yield.
This is good news for farmers in southern Dong Thap province as the US is a demanding potential market with strict requirements for food hygiene and safety, the Voice of Vietnam reported.
After applying VietGap production standards, Chau Thanh longan overcame the strict barriers to enter this demanding market.
Besides longan, farmers in the province's Cao Lanh district and Cao Lanh city also succeeded in building the Cat Chu mango brand and exported hundreds of tonnes of mangoes to restrictive markets such as Japan, the Republic of Korea and Taiwan./.
