 necessary because it helps to increase yields, quality
 products and so to conquer demanding markets.

 Vietnamese agriculture contributes a significant share of GDP
 national. Each year, exports of rice, coffee, pepper, tea, nuts
 cashews, … relate big country. In its economic policies,
 Vietnam is still interested farmers and development

At a recent meeting on
 rice production held in the province of Can Tho (Mekong Delta)
 Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said: “Agriculture is a
 pillar of the national economy. ” However, rising costs
 production, lower yields and declining arable land
 hindering the development of this sector.

One way to accelerate growth

In a recent report published by the Vietnamese market

 London, specialists found that the Vietnamese agriculture
 is facing great opportunities to accelerate growth,
 through the improvement of the national economy. This sector could

 using the famous new technologies.

Recently, the Vietnamese government has approved a comprehensive plan

 the application of high technologies. In 2020, agricultural production
 high-tech should represent 10% to 15% of agricultural production

“It is necessary to accelerate
 the application of technologies to achieve high product
 quality and greater economic value, can pass
 barriers demanding markets, “Truong Dinh Tuyen noted,

 we will win big profits, “says Nguyen Duc Doàn President
 Hoang Anh Gia group of Lai, who has invested more than 14.000 billion
 VND Laos and Cambodia in maize. Its 5,000 ha
 Cambodia give at least 14 tonnes per hectare, twice the
 Traditional methods.

“We apply the
 high technology from seed to harvest. For example, before
 seed, soil samples and water parcels involved
 are tested. Data will be analyzed and processed by software
 tell us about the right amount of fertilizer to make, “says
 Doàn Nguyen Duc.

The cultivation of banana and
 high-tech tomatoes also has its adherents. The operating ten hectares of
 banana Tran Danh Thê in Ho Chi Minh City, from plants
 obtained by tissue culture is a success. Bananas through
 natural resistance to diseases and pests,
 give 70-80 tonnes per hectare, double varieties
 traditional, without phytosanitary treatments. This
 operating even provides plants with a Filipino exploitation
 specializing in the export of bananas to Europe.

“The potential of Vietnamese agriculture are immense.
 However, to maximize the professionals
 will increasingly rely on high-tech. In addition yields
