Farmers dig ponds to store irrigation water in Lâm Đồng


The Central Highlands province of Lâm Đồng is supporting farmers in digging small ponds to store irrigation water until 2025. This is the continuation of a project to dig small ponds from 2016 – 2020. In this period, nearly 3,000 small ponds were dug, meeting 54% of the targeted number and 95% of the targeted pond capacity. This action is a response to the shortage of irrigation water in the dry season, which had negative impacts on crop output, particularly high-value trees like coffee, tea, and durian.
