A kilogram of fresh un-husked rice traded at VND4, 700-4,900 in Binh Minh, Tam Binh and Tra On districts of Vinh Long Province, while a kilogram of dry un-husked rice cost VND5, 600-5,800.

The price of winter-spring rice saw a drop as well at the Thot Not wholesale rice market in Can Tho City and Vinh Long Province.

The winter-spring rice price fell slightly to VND7, 800-7,900 per kilogram, down by VND50-100 per kilogram.

Enterprises and rice mills have bought un-husked rice and polished rice very hesitantly because they already have a surplus stock for sale.
