The provincial People’s Committee had a working session on September 23 with a RoK delegation on this issue.

At the event, Vice Chairman of the Committee Truong Canh Tuyen said the Korean bio-products have been experimented at the provincial hi-tech agriculture zone and more experiments will be conducted in the coming rice crops.

Dr. Lee Sang-huyk from the RoK’s agricultural technology transfer and trade fund expressed wish to transfer his country’s scientific advances to Hau Giang, adding that the province should expand the area for bio-product experiments.

The zone’s management board has so far received 14 bio-products, equipment and technologies from FACT, a Korean agricultural technology transfer and trade organization.

Of which, 12 bio-products and equipment have been delivered to households in Vinh Vien commune, Long My district for rice cultivation on 12.85ha in the Autumn-Winter 2017 crop.

The board has also made plans to implement the project and sent farmers to rice cultivation training courses.

In the coming time, Hau Giang will discuss a project to grow rice using all bio-products from the RoK on an area of 10-20ha.
