In 2021, the Provincial People's Committee implemented the Program to coordinate with Loc Troi Group Joint Stock Company to build 239 turns of large fields, with over 9,440 households participating, the implementation area of 20,399 out of  24,403 hectares registered (reaching over 83 percent), in which the purchasing area of Loc Troi Group Joint Stock Company purchased 8,500 out of 20,399 hectares, achieved 41.7 percent.

Participating in large fields will help farmers reduce seed costs (the number of seeds sown in large fields is about 10-20 kilos per hectares lower than outside); reduce the amount of fertilizer; reduce the number of times of spraying and the dose of pesticides. Thereby, it contributes to help farmers increase profits from 2 to 3 million VND per hectare compared to outside.

Besides the achieved results, the construction of a large field still faces many difficulties: the management and administration capacity of the Board of Directors of the cooperatives, the Cooperatives Group is still limited in management and administration; members do not have close cohesion, easily break contracts when prices are unstable and do not comply with the production process, making product quality inconsistent; Cooperatives do not have the ability to reciprocate, so it is difficult to access support capital; farmers rarely participate in meetings to deploy production plans; The number of businesses coming to the locality to pay is still small, etc.

Regarding the construction of large rice fields, it is expected that in 2022, 250 fields will be deployed, with a total area of over 26,100 hectares; support linkages in production and consumption of agricultural products over 10.6 billion VND; etc.
