Towards improving productivity and quality of agricultural products 

Ending the year 2020, the provincial Agriculture sector has achieved many outstanding results in all fields. This is the driving force for the sector to continue making a breakthrough in 2021, contributing to the successful implementation of the Resolution of the XIth Congress of Provincial Party Committee, term 2020-2025.

Thanh Hoa is a low-lying, end-stream district, so it is easily affected by high tide. In the past year, the complicated situation of natural disasters and epidemics has significantly affected the agricultural sector of the district. Head of Division of Agriculture and Rural Development of Thanh Hoa district - Nguyen Kinh Kha said: “The goal of the district agricultural sector in 2021 and the term 2020-2025 is to continue to expand the area of 750 hectares of rice applying  high technology and focusing on developing areas specializing in cultivation of 450 hectares of pineapple (Tan Tay commune), the area specializing in cultivating 2,800 hectares of yams (Thanh An commune) and the area specializing in lemon tree cultivation of 500 hectares (Thuan Binh commune). At the same time, the branch focuses on directing farmers to sow according to the seasonal schedule in each region, each field, ensuring mass sowing and avoiding pests and diseases”. 

I planted 4.5 hectares of pineapple, the average yield of 25-30 tons per hectare per year. Last year, pineapple prices were high, from 8,000-10,000 VND per kilo, after deducting costs, I profit about 300 million VND. Year 2020 is a successful year for pineapple growers in Tan Tay. Pineapple planting was effective thanks to the province and district investing in the dykes and electric pump stations serving the pineapple cultivation areas. In 2021, I expect that pineapple prices will be high, farmers are profitable and Tan Tay pineapple brand will increasingly have a firm "position" in the market".

“In order to fulfill and exceed the targets of the Resolution of the XI Congress of Provincial Party Committee, the term 2020-2025, from the beginning of 2021, the Agricultural sector continues to promote the application of high technology associated with restructuring the agricultural sector, aiming to improve the productivity and quality of agricultural products and the efficiency of production and business; increase activities of cattle and poultry re-herd; at the same time, drastically direct the prevention of diseases on plants and animals, ensure safety for production and stabilize people's lives. In addition, the sector strengthened the promotion to attract investment in agriculture under the province's incentive mechanism; focus on mobilizing resources to implement the National Target Program on building NR; continue to upgrade, maintain and repair irrigation works after investment in order to improve the capacity to avoid and limit disadvantages caused by natural disasters and respond to climate change.

That is also one of the reasons that workers stick with and accompany businesses in production and business activities. Most workers and employees were specifically informed by the company about the Tet bonus in 2020 as well as other salaries from the Trade Union. This information excited everyone.
