" 6 years, Vietnam has growers awake , do not fall into the trap disturbing information about supply and demand , prices , price to sell in bulk to keep aviation , actively select appropriate time to sell , create authority to determine the price and limit the control of speculators . This is the lesson of the pepper industry in which farmers and enterprises agreed performance and persistence , "said Do Ha Nam said .

Therefore, the authorities should cooperate and VPA organized a comprehensive program evaluation and use of pesticide residues in plant specimens Vietnam . This helps improve the timeliness and credibility for strengthening Vietnam pepper .
