Positive rice trials in Vietnam03/11/2017
A series of rice trials in Vietnam has shown very positive results. Seeds treated with Azotic’s natural nitrogen fixing technology resulted in significant yield increases when compared to non-treated seeds. These independent field trials were carried out by the Cuu Long Rice Research Institute, Can Tho and the Field Crops Research Institute, Hai Duong.Agriculture in Vietnam is a major sector, representing 17% of GDP. Rice accounts for a large proportion of this. Vietnam is the 5th largest exporter of rice.Rice production in Vietnam reached 28.0 million MT in 2016 from 22.9 million MT in 2006, at a growth rate of 22.3%.
