Growing rice at the navel of alum area

At the navel of alum area – Dong Thap Muoi, 85 farmer households in My Thanh Dong (Duc Hue, Long An) are eager to harvest rice field applied Global GAP. Farmers are glad because of high productivity and high selling price.

The Global GAP rice field model has been developed by Prof. Vo Tong Xuan and ITA Rice (Long An) since 2011-2012 Winter-Spring Crop on the area of 60.3 hectares. In 2012 April Quacert, Viet Nam Certification Center- Directorate for Standards, Metrology and Quality (STAMEQ) certified good agriculture practice – Global GAP on the are of 60.3 hectares in Duc Hue.

 

Increasing productivity

Mr. Huynh Van Teo - Party secretary of My Thanh Dong Commune told us that he did not dare to think about farmers in his commune getting rich because of rice. “Duc Hue is the navel of alum area - Dong Thap Muoi with Vam Co Dong river being across, fresh water is only in rainy season and at the beginning of dry season. In Duc Hue the highest average productivity was never beyond 7 ton/ha. But now the highest average productivity is up to 9 ton/ha. In Winter- Spring the average productivity is about 7,5 ton/ha. At the beginning of the project, it was hard to encourage farmers to take part in, but now it is different” Mr. Teo said.

Mr. Phan Van Ca has 0.9 ha field said that in previous Summer- Autumn crops he grew rice just to prevent grass on the field, the average productivity is only about 3 ton/ ha. After joining in Global GAP project, thank to the support of Prof. Vo Tong Xuan and agricultural engineers of ITA Rice in technique directly on the field, the average productivity was more double than before.

“Increasing in both productivity and selling price. We signed the contract with Ita Rice, the selling price is 10% higher than the market price, therefore after harvesting we sell rice immediately at fields”Mr Ca said.

Mr. Le Van Do who has 2.5ha field told us that in the Winter- Spring Crop the interest from his field was 80 millions VND (on average 32 millions per ha), in this Summer- Autumn crop the interest is about 50 millions VND. It is a great profit with farmers. “Farmers in other regions work hard but the interest is not up to 30% as Government's estimation. We base on Prof. Xuan's estimation, therefore 100% interest is reasonable” Mr. Do said

Double benefit

According to Prof. Vo Tong Xuan, at the beginning of the high quality rice project, leaders of the locality and farmers were very eager. But after consultation and explanation about the required Global GAP processing, most of the farmers felt afraid of. Following the process, farmers are not allowed to use fertilizer, plant protection drug freely, empty packages and drug bottles must be collected into the recycle bin; each households must have standardized toilet...

“We discussed with farmers, explained about each step in the technical process modified to be suitable with locality's condition. Some technical steps are not suitable with the practicing on the field but are proved by scientists. For example: fertilizing before seeding, farmers wonder that it is waste to fertilize before seeding ”

Mr. Nguyen Vo Nhu Khoa - Vice president of People's committee in My Thanh Dong Commune said “Basing on the benefit of Global GAP field, we proposed to increase the rice area up to 200 ha, therefore many farmers get rich with rice”

According to science, fertilizing before seeding, soil will lock the fertilizer to contribute nutrition for the plant when the roots grow. Persisting in the project campaign, at last 63 households joined in the project with the area of 63.3 ha under the control of ITA Rice's technical engineers.

“At the end of Winter-Spring 2011-2012, most of the farmers was glad because of the good result of the project, the average productivity is up to 9 ton/ha with low input fees, therefore more farmers want to join in the project” Prof. Vo Tong Xuan said.

Information from Prof. Vo Tong Xuan: with good material rice from farmers, after processing and packaging with international standard, rice is sold in domestic and foreign supper markets with the name “Huong Lua” and “Diamond Rice”. ITA rice will fix the material area to increase the production model of value process.
