HA NAM (VNS) — Japan's Showa Denko Group has worked in conjunction with authorities from the northern province of Ha Nam to design a plan to develop a clean vegetable production plant using LED lighting technology.

During a working session with leaders of the provincial People's Committee on Monday, General Director Daiken Murakami briefed them on the new technology, stressing its necessity for current agricultural production as outdoor cultivation methods experienced negative impacts from climate change.

The modern method could ensure plants received the necessary growth amenities, ultimately helping conserve water, reducing crop waste volume by 40 per cent and contributing to lower production costs, he said.

Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Mai Tien Dung suggested co-operation between Showa Denko and Ha Nam's An Phu Hung Company to carry out the model in the near future.

The An Phu Hung Company has previously partnered with Japan's H.B.C International to successfully implement a Japanese technology organic vegetable-planting model in Ha Nam. — VNS
