LAM DONG (VNS)— A week-long, heavy downpour damaged nearly 200 hectares of vegetables in the central highland province of Lam Dong.
In Da Lat's Don Duong and Lac Duong districts, vegetable productivity has been reduced by nearly 1,000 tonnes. In Don Duong District, where most green vegetables were planted in the province, hail and heavy rain ruined 300 hectares of vegetables.
This led to a 10 to 30 per cent increase in vegetable prices over last month.
Mai Van Khan, chairman of Tan Tien Commune's Co-operative, said they utilized other sources to maintain their supplies. — VNS
