Vietnamese farmers confused about usage of fruit-ripening chemicals

February 19, 2024

A voter in Dak Lak Province expressed concerns, stating that numerous fruit ripening chemicals are extensively used in the Vietnamese market, yet many of them lack proper licensing or user guides. This situation poses challenges for farmers who wish to employ these chemicals, said the voter, from Vietnam's Central Highlands region. Due to the rampant sales of fruit-ripening chemicals, the voter proposed that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development issue detailed instructions on the usage of such agents. The voter also urged the ministry to make a list of banned chemicals. The ministry also encourages organizations and individuals to register the use of post-harvest farm produce preservatives on fruits.
