HÀ NỘI — Many businesses, cooperatives, and farmers in Hà Nội have promoted the application of science and technology into agricultural production, bringing high economic efficiency in recent years.

Science and technology have become the key to agricultural development, productivity and improvement.

Chúc Sơn Clean Vegetables and Fruits Co-operative in Chương Mỹ District is a pioneer in the application of science and technology and achieved many successes.

The cooperative’s director Hoàng Văn Thám said: “Since 2016, the cooperative had invested in an iMetos weather warning station to help farmers manage and monitor production, adjust seeding plans, and take care of vegetables when the weather fluctuates.”

“Along with that, the cooperative had also used the eGap technology to implement electronic traceability for each vegetable growing household and each vegetable field. Last year, we connected to two e-commerce platforms Kinhpeec and Cadosa, for vegetable trading.”

The application of technology in production and consumption helps improve the quality and value of products and bring the cooperative’s products to reputable distributors.

According to the Hà Nội Rural Development Department, as of 2021, the city had 164 agricultural establishments applying advanced technology in production and consumption.

The value of high-tech agricultural products accounts for about 35 per cent of the city’s total agricultural production value, of which high and smart technology is mainly used in the management and performance of production.

In horticulture, there are applications for growing orchids and mushrooms in cold rooms, while in animal husbandry, they are closed barns with a cooling system to help stabilise the temperature and humidity for animals, along with automatic feeding lines and artificial insemination.

Farmers use so-called “river in a pond” technology, biological products, and automatic oxygen generators in aquaculture.
