The northern province of Quang Ninh is taking steps to boost high-tech agriculture to cut production costs, increase volumes, and cultivate high-quality farm produce. To realize this goal, farmers are focusing on speeding up the digital transformation, considering it a strategic solution to enhancing the production, quality, and competitiveness of agricultural products in domestic and international markets.
Dam Ha trade and construction company in Dam Ha district has invested more than 15 billion VND (647,250 USD) to build hydroponic greenhouse vegetable and melon farms, betting on high-tech hydro-growing operations to promote clean agriculture and cut workloads and standardize quality. Director Nguyen Huu Nhuong said that thanks to the newly installed hydroponic systems, the company has enjoyed a production bump of nearly 100 tonnes of melon per year with a revenue of over 1 billion VND (43,150 USD).
Meanwhile, BIM Foods JSC has developed a 128-hectare high-tech shrimp farm project in Dai Binh commune so as to produce more than 250 million shrimp every year. At the same time, Bac Viet Fisheries Cooperative has also expanded its production scale to 7 million tonnes of fish and oysters each year to market.
Chairman of the People’s Committee of Dam Ha district Tran Viet Dung confirmed that the strategic target of the locality is to continue to attract investment and speed up the transformation to high-tech agriculture. This means digitizing many of the former manual processes in the agriculture sector, along with strengthening the application of new technologies, making Dam Ha a major hub of high-tech agriculture production.
