On the morning of June 13, the Department of Science and Technology organized a review Committee for evaluation and acceptance of the research project “Application of technical advances in intensive farming at orchards of Long Phuoc commune, Ba Ria city". Chairman of the board is Mr. Mai Thanh Quang - Director of Department of Science and Technology. The project is led by MSc. Mai Van Tri and hosted by the Southeastern Fruit Research Institute.

The objective of the project is to transfer advanced technology in intensive farming to improve quality, productivity and efficiency in fruit farming for durian, mangosteen and Da Xanh pomelo at Long Phuoc commune, Ba Ria city.

 

After 36 months of implementation, the project has developed a new model of grapefruit planting under the VietGAP standard for the area of ​​6.1 hectares in 11 households (comparing to the original plan of 6 hectares for 8 households). Research shows that plants in the model reached a significant improvement in growth rate while pest infestation rate is lower than in the control garden.

 

In 2 hectares of durian trees from 4 farmers, productivity increased by 40,14-63,56% and economic efficiency by 69.25 - 125 , 51% compared with control gardens. In 2 hectares of mangosteen trees from 4 farmers, productivity increased by 21.94 - 23.92% and economic efficiency increased by 28.46 - 33%. , 47% compared with the control sample. At the same time, 240 farmers have been trained on fruit production practices in accordance with VietGAP standards. The project has contributed to improve people's awareness and skills in intensifying farming, and improve fruits quality, productivity and economic efficiency for the participating farmers

 

The committee evaluated that the research project satisfies acceptance requirements. However, some minor improvements need to be made as recommended by the review committee.
