After three years of implementation, a trial project to grow vegetables on 2,000ha in Cần Đước, Cần Giuộc and Đức Hòa districts and Tân An City until 2020 has been hailed by local farmers for its efficiency. Đoàn Phương Nga, deputy head of the province’s Sub-department of Plant Cultivation, Protection and Agricultural Product Quality Management’s plant cultivation and protection division, said farmers participating in the project have achieved high incomes.
