LÂM ĐỒNG — The Central Highlands Province of Lâm Đồng aims to have 26,000 hectares of land under macadamia and achieve an output of 34,000 tonnes a year by 2030.
It will include 9,400 ha of forest lands.
Intercropping will be done on a large portion of the land.
The province’s goal for 2030 is to sustainably develop macadamia farming while also increasing the forest cover.
Macadamia will be grown in Đà Lạt and Bảo Lộc towns and the nine districts of Lạc Dương, Đam Rông, Lâm Hà, Đức Trọng, Đơn Dương, Di Linh, Bảo Lâm, Đạ Tẻh, and Cát Tiên.
To make sure the targets are met and ensure quality, authorities will draw up macadamia planting guidelines for farmers.
They will seek investment and technology in macadamia production to meet Vietnamese and international quality standards from companies and other sources.
Lâm Đồng also plans to set up 14 new facilities to expand its processing capacity to 20,000 tons a year. — VNS.
