On the way, we also recommend listening to her son to take the corn model of family relatives Nguyen Thanh Hai, Binh Hoa hamlet, Phu Xuan always be considered "good" in society. Meet our fun Hai said: "Planting corn taking the form, if a little care skills are being sold prices, traders in order to purchase fresh farm payment, farmers harvest healthy help take re ".

Replicate the model
So far, his family in the village of Binh Chau Tran Trong Hoa, Phu Xuan still remembers planting the seed corn crops due to weather, drought ... revenue losses. Therefore, since the local movement started to take the corn itself, his family also boldly redirect investment into this model.
In Xuan Phu, Mr. Chau is considered "King Corn", is a pioneer in the number of farmers planting corn paradigm shift taking earliest relatives. At the same time, should be investment intensive corn model taking the form of his family always high yield and plant growth are good.
Following Le Khoi, social workers visited KN model taking the form of corn Zhou family, we witnessed the whole area of corn was invested installed both systems are basically saving irrigation.

Moreover, each year arable to 3-4 for, not to mention taking the form of corn planting less than the cost of investment. Also, taking the form of corn will avoid water shortages in late spring.
+ According to the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Xuan Loc, corn model itself only took about 80 days to harvest, more profitable corn grain. However, in terms of agronomy, corn model body if taken long term to expand and grow will not be good for the soil environment for rapid crop rotation, organic nutrition that impoverished land.
+ Mr. Nguyen Van Hiep, Vice Chairman of Phu Xuan said: "In previous years, the corn get close to the processing plant for animal feed only a few scattered three hectares. However, two years ago, thanks to higher values with economic output should stabilize farmers bravely scaling the area of 100 ha.
