Mekong Delta strive to increase sugarcane yield 300,000 tonsUpdate: 2/22/2014
According to the Southwest Steering Committee , 2014, the Mekong River Delta plans to plant 60,000 hectares of sugarcane , yield 6 million tons of sugar cane , an area equivalent to 300,000 tonnes but production increased compared with 2013.
Acreage is most concentrated in the provinces of Hau Giang , Long An , Soc Trang , Tra Vinh , Ben Tre and Kien Giang . The area above will stabilize in 2020 as planned by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development . To date , the province has 27,000 hectares planted , mostly in Long An , Ben Tre , Tra Vinh .
To reduce production costs , the Mekong Delta province plans to sugar mills in the region in the direction of complete equipment to operate at full capacity and halt selling paintings buy paintings sugarcane . 100 % of sugarcane acreage will be planted new varieties with high yield of 25 % according to the structure of early ripening varieties , ripening varieties average 50 % , 25 % late ripening varieties to supply the sugarcane but not overwhelmed spread evenly in the month , the sugar mills not missing local ingredients .
The province encourages growers to use canes Vietnam origin were recruited through trials as VN84 - 4137 , VN85 - 1427 , VN85 - 1859 . For imported varieties should be planted sugarcane varieties : K95 - 156 , Suphanburi 7 , KK2 , K93 - 236 , KU00 -1- 61 K88 - 65 , KU60 - 3 (Thailand ) , ROC27 ( Taiwan ) , VD85 -177 ( China ) for yield , sugar content ( CCS ) high , drought -tolerant , tipping over , less ash , good regeneration ability . Cane yield from 95-159 tons / ha , high sugar content .
Accordingly , the province will continue to build and upgrade irrigation facilities sugarcane crops ; reorganization of sugarcane , from small -scale to focus , forming the vast sugarcane fields to intensive farming conditions , increase productivity . In particular , new varieties change a top priority to promote the advantages of soil and apply measures the advanced science and technology into production to lower cost products . The province promoting research , implementation of mechanization in land preparation , care to improve productivity and quality .
To solve the problem of production , processing and consumption of cane price to farmers profitable , the Southwest Steering Committee requested the provincial allocation spread the appropriate materials to avoid redundancy . Plant and farmers agreed time of sowing , harvesting , purchase price ... to avoid overcrowding in the factory and support preferential loans to plant enough direct investment and procurement of sugarcane farmers , not under pressure to prices farmers . / .
