Thua Thien-Hue (VNA) – The central province of Thua Thien-Hue
plans to zone off an additional 5,500 hectares of large-scale fields to meet
the target of cultivating 51,000-52,000 hectares of rice per year by 2020.

Large-scale field is a centralised production model bringing together farmers,
businesses, scientists and State agencies to facilitate the application of
technology in cultivation, thus improving the value of agricultural products
and farmers’ income.

The province is currently home to over 1,430 hectares of large-scale fields,
increasing economic efficiency from 15 to 20 percent.

Close connections between local farmers and businesses have brought remarkable achievements
to the model. Farmers gathered to create huge volume of farm produce while
businesses are responsible for providing seedlings at stable prices and providing
the farmers with cultivation techniques to ensure the output and quality.

Under the large-scale field model, local authorities and residents join hands
to build irrigational systems and promote mechanisation in agricultural
production. Advanced technologies have been comprehensively applied, from
cleaning up the fields before rice sowing, fertilising and preventing diseases
to harvesting.

According to Director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural
Development Ho Sy Nguyen, the quality and quantity of farm produce are decisive
factors for the success of large-scale field model.

In the coming time, all localities need to zone off suitable areas for
large-scale fields, renovate production methods based on linkages among
farmers, businesses and scientists as well as ensure stable consumption markets
for farmers.-VNA
