Title: VIETNAM FARMERS UNION


1
VIETNAM FARMERS UNION
  • Rice production
  • Rising price and food security quality

2
Rice production in 2007
  • Rice output reached 35.87 millions tons
  • Average yield reached 4.98 tons/hectare
  • Rice export 4.5 millions tons
  • Main areas of rice production are Red river
    delta and Mekong delta
  • Viet Nam is the big rices exporter after
    Thailand ( 14 of global market )

Situation of rising price
  • In comparison with December, 2007, in
    April,2008
  • Food( rice) consumption price has been increased
    25.1()
  • Foodstuffs consumption price increased
    15,6
  • Transportation consumption price increased
    9.5
  • Fertilizer price increased from 25-30

5
Main Reasons
  • Inflation rate is increased highly in beginning
    months of the year 2008
  • Price of import products for production,
    business, and consumption speedily increased,
    especially fertilizerpestrol,construstion
    materials.... prices
  • Effect of disadvantage climate in beginning
    months of Spring rice crop( 40 day of damaging
    cold in January and February).
  • Rice distribution system of big Food
    Cooperations are passive in domestic market. Some
    private traders, retailers stored rice to
    speculate and speed up the virtual price storms

6
Problems and new challenges
  • Agricultural production is
  • still small and developing
  • at low level
  • Farming lands are scattered,
  • especially rice fields of farmer
  • hoseholds(4-5 plots/household.)
  • Lack of advanced technology and technique in
    Agriculture production
  • Lack of high quality rice varieties

7
Problems and new challenges
  • Climate change affects agricultural production
    (Typhoons,floods,droughts..)
  • Urbanization and industrialization take away the
    rice-growing areas.(About 34,330 hectares of
    paddy cultivation land has been lost, converted
    into non-agricultural use from 2005-2007.
  • The average yield and quality of rice is still
    low in comparison with other countries in region
  • (under 5 tons/hectare)

8
Challenges
  • Unregulated conversion of farmland into
    industrial park, urban areas, construction sites
    will affect national food security and life of
    thousands of farmers.

9
Problem and challenges
  • Post-harvest loss of paddy is high( about 13 of
    yield)
  • Lack of capital to invest to machines,
    post-harvest and processing technology and
    irrigation and drainage systems.

10
How to ensure food security and quality
  • A comprehensive and complete strategy to 2015
    and 2020 on rice development is being formulated
    with contribution of Ministry of Agriculture R.D
    and relevant ministries, institutes,
    organizations
  • On 18 April, 2008, Vietnamese Prime Minister has
    signed the Decision No 391 on farmland
    protection and asked local authorities and
    relevant agencies to reassess the land use
    nationwide to minimize the conversion of
    agricultural land and restore rice growing areas
  • A policy on Agriculture, Rural development and
    Farmers
  • is formulated to assure that Agriculture, Rural
    areas and farmers life will be developed in the
    industrialization and modernization process of
    country

11
Food security and quality
  • Objectives and measures
  • -To stabilize 4 millions hectares of rice
    growing( 2-3 rice crops per year)
  • _ Increase the average rice output and quality (
    at present, there is about 36 millions tons per
    year to meet domestic demand, food security and
    export)
  • To apply the advanced technology on agricultural
    and rice production to increase the yield and
    quality of rice,
  • To develop tradition specialty rice zones and
    local strains with high quality with original
    brand (Tam xoan Hai hau, Tam Dien Bien...)

12
Food security and quality
  • To increase the investment to Agriculture, such
    as high quality seed and variety research,
    environment-friendly farming technology,
    machinery, irrigation, rural infrastructure,
    renovate pre and post-harvest technology and
    processing....
  • to build up the mechanisms and to encourage the
    cooperation, linkages between enterprises,
    traders and farmers in rice supply chains and
    farmers can access easy local, national and
    global market

13
Food security and quality What farmers
organization do
  • VNFU closely collaborate with Govts ministries,
    agencies to carry out rice growing projection
    areas and involve in policy and strategy making
    process on food security at local and national
    level.
  • To facilitate farmers to exchange and
    restructure plots of rice fields to create the
    zones of rice growing, avoid the scattered land
    situation at present.
  • To conduct extension training courses for
    farmers on advanced technology in agricultural
    production, especially rice production(IPM, GAP,
    Organic rice) and apply the high quality seeds
    and SPS standard

14
Food security and quality
  • To organize farmers to produce and sell their
    products by linkages of farmers groups,
    collectives and cooperatives
  • To provide the services of inputs and outputs in
    agriculture production, such as loans, technique,
    seeds, fertilizer, market information....
  • To assist farmers to run market development
    activities and market information to get more
    benefit from rice production

15
Farmers satisfy with rice production, contribute
to food security and reserve the quality varieties
