Tiền Giang adopts new farming models to cope with changing climate

Vietnam News – Tiền Giang Province has developed new agricultural production models that provide farmers with a reliable income to cope with climate change in its eastern districts and Gò Công Town.

They include growing rice in the rainy season and breeding shrimp in the dry season in the same field. Others include growing vegetables, dragon fruit and other crops instead of rice.

Located downstream of the Tiền River, a major tributary of the Mekong, the province is severely affected by saltwater intrusion in the eastern districts of Chợ Gạo, Gò Công Tây, Tân Phú Đông, and Gò Công Đông and Gò Công Town.
