Agricultural Problems in Vietnam
Like all countries, Vietnam is dealing with some challenges in agriculture. Here are a few of the main ones:
- Decreasing crop yields
- Lack of Crop diversification
- Over fertilization
- High Costs of Inputs such as traditional fertilizers (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium)
Lets start by talking about biofertilizers. Although they have been discussed many times on this site, a quick review is in order. Biofertilizers are a product that contain living microorganisms, usually beneficial soil bacteria or beneficial soil fungi. These beneficial microbes colonize the plants roots and help the plant utilize nutrients more efficiently. Additionally, bio fertilizers produce chemical compounds that actually help the plant grow bigger, stronger roots and produce more productive plants.
Biofertilizers have the potential to help Vietnam agriculture in a number of important ways. First, the use
of biofertilizers will help improve crop yields. They do this by improve the root system of the plant. Every farmer knows that a better root system means a more productive crop.
Next, biofertilizers can reduce the use of traditional (NPK) fertilizers. This save the farmer money and increases his Return on Investment (ROI).
Finally, bio fertilizers have been shown to be extremely effective on crop that are key to agriculture in Vietnam; such as:
- Sugar Cane
- Black Pepper
- Tree nuts
