Ham Yen District effectively develops farm economy

TQO - Developing the farm economy in Ham Yen District has proved to be an effective form of production aiming to promote change in the rural economic structure and help local people increase their incomes.

So far this year, Ham Yen District has established seven new farms, raising the total number to 242, including 219 cultivation farms, nine breeding farms, one forestry farm and 13 mixed farms.

The development of the farm economy in recent years has contributed to the creation of specialized commodity production areas in the district, such as the orange cultivation areas in the communes of Phu Luu, Tan Thanh and Yen Thuan, and Tan Yen town, and the pig farming areas in Thanh Long and Tan Thanh communes. Products of many Ham Yen orange farms can be found on shelves in Hanoi’s supermarkets and trade centers, and are being sold in many other provinces across the country.

The production value of cultivation farms ranges between VND950 million (US$41,290) and over VND1 billion (US$43,462) per farm each year, while the annual average production value is VND1.6 billion (US$69,535) per breeding farm.

The farm economy has contributed to creating jobs for over 2.000 workers. This is an important premise for Ham Yen’s communes to fulfill new-style rural development criteria and improve the living standards of the locals.
