Banana profits ripen

Update: May, 21/2013 - 12:00

Farmers from the Mekong Delta are earning high profits from bananas exported to China. Nguyen Hoang Bac, a trader from Dong Thang Commune in Can Tho City's Thoi Lai District, said he had hired 20 to 30 workers to purchase 15 to 20 tonnes of bananas from plantations in the region each day. The bananas, which were bought for VND3,300 (US$0.16) to VND6,000 ($0.29) per cluster, were packed into containers before being exported to China through border trading. Bac said a large volume of bananas had also been exported to China from HCM City. A farmer can earn profits of VND12 million to VND15 million on 1ha of banana cultivation, he said. — VNS Photo Hoang Vu
