Pac Cung promotes crop and livestock restructuring

TQO - Taking advantage of its terrain and land, Pac Cung Hamlet in Thuong Nong Commune, Na Hang District has proactively restructured its crop cultivation and animal husbandry towards an agricultural commodity production model.

The hamlet, nearly 90 kilometres from Na Hang District’s centre, is home to 45 households with 285 residents, most of them San Chi ethnic people. 

Pac Cung enjoys a large volume of rainfall all year round, offering favourable conditions for Shan Tuyet tea to flourish in the locality. The specialty tea trees here naturally grow into forests, allowing it to be selected by local authorities as a key crop to develop into a local commodity product.

Developing Shan Tuyet tea farming helps generate a stable income for Pac Cung residents.

Local households have expanded their tea plantation models from their small tea gardens, helping the total tea farming area in the hamlet increase up to nearly 10 hectares. In order to assist Pac Cung farmers successfully develop their tea cultivation, Thuong Nong Commune authorities have organised training courses to offer local farmers techniques related to tea planting, tending and harvesting. 

In addition, the commune has offered Pac Cung a tea drying machine, using funding from the provincial budget and the 135 programme. These efforts aim to gradually bring Pac Cung Tea product and its trademark to the market. 

In 2019, 21 disadvantaged households in the hamlet were provided with breeding cows, while five others were offered an animal feed mill machine each. In addition, the hamlet was also supported with 10 tillage machines. 

The initial results in restructuring the crops and livestock in Pac Cung Hamlet are expected to be a motivation for local residents to gradually lift themselves out of poverty.
