With the export of a large amount of other fruits such as mango, longan...to markets such as China, Taiwan, Australia, Europe, the US and Russia, this helped local farmers promote big business thinking and the advantages of its agricultural development, according to VOV.
Two years ago, more than 1 ha of hill gardens of Mrs. Tong Thi Thanh Huong's family (in Hung Nhan village, Chieng Pha commune, Thuan Chau district) used to specialize in growing coffee. The garden was once abandoned due to unstable prices, low economic efficiency. Last year, Huong's family changed their business thinking and converted to cultivate red dragonfruits in an organic way.
After over 1 year, more than 1,000 dragonfruits have been harvested, with their productivity and price more stable than the family's imagination. After a series of rigorous testing, dragonfruits have met export standards to Russia.
