The southern province of Vinh Long and the Central Committee of the Viet Nam Farmers’ Union will organise the first ever Agricultural Inputs Festival in the province this month.
To take place from March 23 to 29 in Vinh Long City, it will feature an agricultural-industrial and trade fair, orchid, bonsai and red-whiskered bulbul singing competitions, among other activities, Pham Minh Hung of the Central Committee of the Viet Nam Farmers’ Union, said.
Speaking at a press briefing in HCM City on Friday, Nguyen Thanh Son, a member of the festival organisation board, said farmers and craft villages would have a chance to promote their products while enterprises can introduce their agricultural machinery and equipment, seeds, fertilisers and pesticides, and other agricultural inputs.
Seminars on creating livelihoods for farmers amid climate change and on sharing the benefits of agricultural input producers and distributors with farmers would be held on the sidelines of the festival, he said.
More than 800 localities, establishments and businesses have so far registered to participate, with 200 businesses involved in the field of agricultural inputs. — VNSNguồn: bizhub.vn
