Aquaculture, agriculture: livestock, cultivation, processing & import, export

Weekly summary (November 5, 2018 - November 11, 2018)


The Ha Noi Agricultural Extension Center has implemented a fish-farming model applying "river in pond" technology.

The new technology is an aquarium system with a special design. On one side of the fish pond, there are piping systems that blow air to create natural, riverlike flows.

The system is always run at 24/24 hours in static ponds. It continuously blows air and aerates water so that the oxygen content in ponds is guaranteed for farming at high density. A siphon system is used daily to collect waste and leftover feed to maintain the water environment.

The Hanoi Agricultural Extension Center evaluates that the model brings positive outcomes. Initial results showed that the model increased the stocking density by 10-20 times. Its growth rate was higher by 30%; the productivity was increased by 2-3 times; the survival rate reached over 87%, and the income could be up to VND220-250 million/hectare, which is 1.5 to 2 times higher than traditional farming methods.

Processing, Import and Export:

Khanh Hoa Province currently has 44 seafood exporters certified by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to meet industry standards, including many large businesses such as Hai Vuong LLC.; Nha Trang Seafoods - F17 JSC; Hai Long LLC; Thinh Hung LLC, and Tin Thinh LLC.

Seafood products of Khanh Hoa have been exported to 64 countries and territories in the world. The export turnover has always grown, reaching $550 million/year, accounting for nearly 60% of the total export value of the agricultural sector.


Through research and experiences, people in Cao Duong Commune, Luong Son District, Hoa Binh Province found that goat farming was suitable with the climate and terrain of the commune. Since then, the model has been implemented and expanded in the commune. Goat farming has brought stable economic efficiency and helped many households overcome poverty in this region.

Currently, Cao Duong Commune has nearly 1,300 goats. The selling price of goats in the commune is about VND130,000/kg. Thanks to goat farming, many local households can earn hundreds of millions of Vietnamese dong.

The consumption market of goat is relatively stable. At times, many households don’t have enough products to sell due to large market demand. With an application of good caring technology and an understanding of market needs, farmers can successfully earn high income and improve their lives with goat farming.


In recent years, pepper farming in Quang Tri Province has been developed thanks to the connections between stakeholders such as farmers, scientists, businesses and government. With authorities’ determinations to improve farming practices and to promote branding, pepper from Quang Tri Province now has a stable consumption in both domestic and foreign markets. The “Quang Tri pepper” geographical indications are also successfully registered and applied. Along with that, clean cultivation methods and organic farming also bring positive outcomes to pepper farmers in this region.

Currently, many households are focusing on organic pepper farming. They especially pay attentions to buying high-quality seeds from gardens certified by management agencies. Several households also invest in drip irrigation systems, farm and drainage designs.

By the end of 2017, Quang Tri Province has 2,494 hectares of pepper. Of which, there are over 1,907 hectares for harvest with a productivity of 12 quintals/hectare, and a yield of 2,300 hectares.


Phuoc Thuan Commune, Ninh Phuoc District, Ninh Thuan Province concentrates on agricultural production. For many years, in addition to rice farming, local farmers have also grown 311 hectares of grape and apple. Phuoc Khanh Village in Phuoc Thuan Commune especially has more than 130 households growing grape according to VietGAP standard, including 30 hectares combining grape cultivation and ecotourism.

Households implementing ecotourism in Phuoc Thuan Commune are trained by agricultural engineers on the technical process of growing grape according to the VietGAP standard. They are also guided to have knowledge of customer service and communication with visitors.

This program of growing grape according to VietGAP standard is effective with high yield. It also promotes the brand of Ninh Thuan grape to consumers and visitors.

Farmers, Agriculture, Countryside:

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said that the value of agricultural, forestry and fishery export in October 2018 was estimated at $3.36 billion, bringing the total export value in the first 10 months of 2018 to $32.6 billion, up 8.1% over the same period in 2017.

The export value of main agricultural products reached $16.4 billion (up 2.3%), of seafood products reached $7.24 billion (up 6.2%), and of livestock reached $0.46 billion (up 9.5%). The export of forest products is also estimated at $7.6 billion (up 16.3%).

Living and Environment:

On November 4, the authorities of Anh Son District, Nghe An Province said that a herd of 4 elephants appeared in this area. They destroyed crops and made local residents have to chase them safely.

According to officials of the management board of Anh Son District, they can be wild elephants from Pu Mat National Park. In recent years, elephants often appear and damage crops or trees of farmers in Anh Son and Thanh Chuong Districts.

Pet, Flowers and Ornamental Plants:

At this time, in Thua Thien - Hue Province, it is common to see florists using lights to provide care for their chrysanthemum at nighttime. This is one of the most important steps in flower care to prepare for Lunar New Year Holiday.

The lighting method is used until the end of the 10th lunar month. It is based on the principles of photoperiodism. Lighting takes place at night, when flowers are in the seedling stage, to increase their height and control early bud burst. The majority of perennial growers are experienced in this method.
