In particular, in Luc Ngan, which houses the largest area of citrus trees in the province, locals both harvest early-ripening grapefruits and take care of the trees, embellish and clean gardens and yards, standing ready to welcome visitors.

Tang Van Huy, head of the district Division of Agriculture and Rural Development, said that in addition to asking people in the district to actively take care of the orange and grapefruit areas, the unit has selected 255 households having beautiful orchards with an output of 15 tonnes of oranges or grapefruits per crop or more to welcome visitors.

A representative of the Division of Agriculture and Rural Development of Luc Nam district said that 485 hectares of citrus trees in the district are being well cared for, with an estimated output of nearly 2,200 tonnes. A number of traders have come here to study and order products. In order to help grapefruit growers expand their consumption markets and promote the value of this crop, Luc Nam district is supporting the Mai Suu Agricultural Service Cooperative to develop an One Commune One Product (OCOP) product: Mai Su Grapefruit.

The People's Committee of Luc Ngan district has developed two scenarios for selling oranges and grapefruits. The first one: the Covid-19 epidemic is still complicated in the country, but stable in Bac Giang; and the second one: The pandemic hits the district.

In both scenarios, the district defines that it will focus on selling fresh fruits, about 55,000 tonnes, in the domestic market and the rest will be processed to make juices or dried.

In scenario 2, identifying that traders are unable to enter, the district People's Committee will regularly inform traders about the production situation and regulations on goods circulation in the market in provinces and cities throughout the country. It will help traders and drivers with quick Covid-19 tests and guide the issuance of goods transport permits in line with regulations on pandemic prevention and control. Activities to promote trade, advertise and introduce products will be organized through teleconferences.

Nguyen The Thi, Vice Chairman of the People's Committee of Luc Ngan district, said that this year the locality will not hold a fair of oranges, grapefruits and signature products because of concerns over the Covid-19 outbreak.
