LONG AN (VNS) — Hi-tech use of solar energy to dry rice and fruits was among several technologies presented to farmers and other stakeholders at a two-day seminar that opened in Long An Province yesterday (October 28).

The seminar, titled "Post-harvest Maintenance and Processing of Farm Produce in Viet Nam," is jointly organised by farmers associations in Germany and Viet Nam.

Several advanced technologies and methods to mprove post-harvest maintenance and processing of farm produce in Viet Nam were introduced to farmers at the seminar.

The seminar also informed the farmers of relevant EU regulations on the use of plant protection chemicals, packaging, and cultivation of safe vegetables.

The seminar also discusses future co-operation plans between the farmers' associations of Viet Nam and Germany.

The deputy chairman of Viet Nam Farmers' Association, Leu Vu Dieu, said he hoped that both Government and non-government organisations from Germany will help Vietnamese farmers to better manage, control and certify quality of their produce.

He asked the German Farmers' Association in particular to help their Vietnamese counterparts to build a model for preserving and processing farm produce to meet EU standards so as to promote export of Viet Nam's agriculture exports to markets all over the world.—VNS
