The VND21 billion project was sponsored by Japan International Cooperation Agency.

Under the project, Japan’s Himeji Flowers Auction Co., Ltd will work with Da Lat city authorities to set up a flower research and breeding centre, which incorporates a laboratory and a 2,000 square meter agricultural classroom.

In the seven months leading up to February 2019, Japanese experts will visit Xuan Tho district, Da Lat city to open a training course for local farmers on propagating seedlings and growing daisy and dianthus flowers.

They will also share their shoot-tip experience with local agricultural workers and farmers on how to select varieties for propagation as well as on farming techniques, pest management, and post harvest technologies.

The project intends to enhance the quality of Da Lat flowers and increase their competitiveness on the international market.
