TQO - With the advantage of climate and land, Ham Yen District has actively implemented many solutions to sustainably develop citrus crops in the area.

Local people in Yen Phu Commune (Ham Yen) exchange experiences in growing citrus fruit trees.

Ham Yen District has 7,200 hectares of orange trees, 52 hectares of tangerines, 360 hectares of pomelos, and 940 hectares of lemons. Currently, orange tree is still the main crop of the district.

In addition to the traditional orange varieties, the district has introduced many new orange varieties such as Vinh orange, V2 orange, and seasonal orange in order to diversify orange varieties and spread the harvest.

Besides, to improve the quality and value of products, the district has actively mobilized and propagated local people to change production methods from traditional to VietGAP and organic production. Up to now, the area applied VietGAP standards is 870.8 hectares of oranges, 15.5 hectares of pomelos while the area applied organic standards is 22.4 hectares of oranges, 10 hectares of pomelos.
