Flower village to revive production

Like other residents of Ha Loi Village in Ha Noi’s Me Linh District, Nguyen Huy Ha rejoiced when their life seemed to be returning to normal after the lockdown period was lifted on May 6.

However, his joy was short-lived. Losses reached an estimated VND30 billion (US$1.2 million), according to local authorities.

It can’t be denied that the Covid-19 pandemic has seriously hit the flower gardens and the lives of local residents, and the first and most urgent task for them now is resuming production.

A flower grower from Ha Loi Village in Ha Noi’s Me Linh District harvests yellow chrysanthemums.

Me Linh is dubbed the largest flower market in the northern region. Ha Loi has over 800 houses engaged in the trade with 100ha of flowers. The village supplies the capital city as well as also other provinces and cities across the country.

Flower cultivation is the key trade, helping to reduce poverty and improve farmers' incomes.

During the blockade, the majority of flower gardens were damaged. The flowers either withered after many days without care or suffered from diseases.

It could take at least two months to revive the flower beds, he said, adding that the revenue earned from this crop might be not enough to cover medicine and labour costs.

She said she hoped they would receive support from the Government to overcome their difficulties.

Local authorities would invite scientists to guide growers on how to care and revive their land to ensure the plants’ strong development.

The district’s People’s Committee would ask the city’s Department of Industry and Trade to assist with advertising to facilitate the sale of flowers from Ha Loi, helping locals stabilise their lives.

Pham Thanh Do, head of the district’s Economic Division, said after the lockdown, farmers were being trained how to take care for their plants using biological products to assure safety for consumers.

The district also warned farmers not to expand flower cultivation in accordance with the plan, and switch to food crops to ensure they had enough to eat.

During the lockdown, residents who wished to go out had to obtain written approval, while others were only allowed to leave their houses for essential purposes and travel within the village. Village officials also took on the role of delivering food and groceries to residents.
