The Vietnam Gardening Association announced at a press briefing in Ho Chi Minh City that the first safe agricultural produce festival will be organised in April this year.
The festival will be held in the Mekong delta province of Dong Thap, and will offer opportunities for businesses, co-operatives and farmers to promote their products and enter into long-term co-operation deals and investment agreements with traders.
The festival will have more than 300 stalls that will display safe agricultural products, seedlings, and many other farm related products.
Dr. Vo Mai, Deputy Head of the Gardening Association, said there will be seminars on safe agricultural produce markets and use of technology in producing safe products, emphasising importance of safe products to farmers and also providing instructions to produce them.
|Vietnam Gardening Association was established 20 years ago. This model combines orchard development, fish breeding in ponds and animal husbandry. Local climate and the environment of different regions will determine the model people adopt.|
