LÂM ĐỒNG — The Tây Nguyên (Central Highlands) province of Lâm Đồng plans to increase the area of farms with organic standard certification by 575ha this year. It will offer training to farmers, co-operatives, co-operative groups, and businesses in organic farming techniques, and develop two organic farming models for tea and breeding chickens for eggs. Lâm Đồng is the country’s leading province in hi-tech farming and its agricultural products are well-known domestically and exported. It has extensive hi-tech farming areas but little for organic farming, according to the department. It had 1,311ha of certified organic farming areas as of the middle of last year.
