Kiên Giang widens efficient rice farming, aquaculture models

VNNews – The Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Kiên Giang has expanded its most efficient rice and aquatic species farming models in the last two years. Many farmers have switched from growing rice, in case of low yields, to breeding aquatic species. They have also expanded the model of rotating between rice in the rainy season and shrimp in the dry season on the same fields to enhance their incomes. The model is particularly suitable for coastal areas since it helps adapt to climate change and rising sea levels.
