Similarly in 2021, family of Hoang Thi Hau in Hong Lac village, Dong Tam commune (Yen The district) was supported to raise two batches of hybrid chicken, each batch of 2,000 heads in line with organic procedure.

Actual proved that after more than 3 years of implementation, the Scheme has gradually changed the mindset and production method from relying on inorganic fertilizers and chemical pesticides to organic production in order to improve food quality and safety, protect the ecological environment and human health.

This not only improves the quality, competitiveness and value of products but also helps farmers change their production thinking towards safety, sustainability, harmony with the ecological environment...

To build a green agriculture, along with the provincial support mechanism, the owners should boldly transform to bring quality products to consumers.
