All of the orchard, especially orange and pomelo are cultivated under VietGAP procedure with organic fertilizers and plant protection products. Besides, he equips the semi-automatic water piping system to all the orchard, thus his fruits always have better quality.

Sharing the same method of Huu, the families of Tran Van Tru in Xe Cu village and Ly Van Bao in Min To village in Tru Huu commune promise to have a success year thanks to the bumper fruit trees.

However, many citrus orchards in the district are degraded with low output due to long time cultivation. Chu Van Khai in Sang Noi village, Tan Quang commune said his 7 year old orchard of orange and pomelo became undergrowth and gave few fruits with medium quality. Currently, he replaces many new trees including Phuc Kien pomelo.

Anh Khai household is not the sole case. Many families in Tan Quang commune have exploited too much for years, leading to degraded trees, barren and disease infected soil.

According to Duong Xuan Truong, Chairman of Tan Quang communal People’s Committee said the local authority advises the farmers not to popularize the citrus and only develop this crop in suitable soil.

Additionally, the commune also instructed the villages to grow other fruit tree such as Thailand custard apple or early ripen lychee in the area where they remove the citrus trees.

Building models with new crops

Luc Ngan district is conducting the pilot model to grow new varieties of orange namely BH and CT36 created by Vietnam Institute of Agriculture Genetic in 15 hectares in Phuong Son and Bien Son communes in order to intensively develop the citrus tree under a sustainable method toward export.
