WHAT WE WILL DO IN AGRICULTURE FOR VIETNAM THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

In Export Agriculture, we need to catch up and match our neighboring nations in production and quality and also must innovate additional strategies above and beyond typical agricultural standards. Vietnam is lacking of so many basic requirements for any farming: Roadways, container trailers/trucks, processing facilities, etc. just to name a few. However, VINAREX is with experience in working with poor countries and with the skills and diligence of the Vietnamese, we can overcome these infrastructure-related shortcomings in the first few years. We will work hard to create engineering, mechanical and other innovations so we will make up the difference with other countries within 3 years.

OUR AGRICULTURE: DIVERSIFIED, COMPREHENSIVE, SELF-SUPPORT, SYSTEMATIC, MODERNIZED

PRODUCT QUALITY

Even though we are far behind our neighboring nations such as Thailand, Malaysia and China in modernized agriculture, but under our development and modernization methods, Vietnam's export agriculture will take 2 years or less to meet or exceed the product quality level of any other nations anywhere. VINAREX is equipped with sufficient knowledge and experiences in TROPICAL AGRICULTURE from Hawaii to Central, South America to match any other nations including China.

PLANTING AND PRODUCTION

While we foresee SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY as the foundations of our agriculture, we advocate the use of science in a most socially and humanly responsible way. We are against the use of industrial biological and genetic materials in plant agriculture, aquaculture and animal husbandry in Vietnam. We will design and build Vietnam's agriculture in a systematic, comprehensive, methodical and technological manners while intelligently making use of our productive labor force.

ENTOMOLOGY PLANT PATHOLOGY

Our modernized entomological and plant pathological support network will be most advanced to ascertain that we meet or exceed plant quarantine requirements from any importing nations. Short term and long term insect eradication programs will be deliberately planned; Extensive scientific support planning, testing and monitoring programs for the ENTIRE area where the crop is located will be installed. Whenever necessary and when natural growing conditions are not sufficient for insect/disease control and prevention, we will design and set up artificial environment to prevent insects and diseases. With the large number of willing and able farm labor in Vietnam, this is not impossible and we will prove to the World that it can be done.

NO INDUSTRIAL BIO ADDITIVES

One of the important characters of our agricultural programs will be the strict and emphatic prohibition of the use of any growth enhancement, hormone stimulants and other genetic or bio-chemical additives. We strongly protest the use of these additives in agriculture as being done in a few nations especially China. We have strong evidence in Vietnam that the use of these agents will lead to health risks to women and children.

MARKETING - MANAGEMENT - PRODUCT FINISHING & SUPPORT

Production and product advancements are not the only goals. Each Product or Crop must be accompanied by a comprehensive and methodical marketing, management and support system such as custom packaging, warehousing-shipping plan, effective but honest and professional marketing, and even the introduction and training of each farmer with the use of information technology, internet technology and farm management, monitoring system using modernized software. Each farmer is trained to become not just a farmer but a technician and a professional in his own rights. To us, agriculture is not farming. It is a RESPECTABLE PROFESSIONAL INDUSTRY and must be organized, taught and systemized as AN INDUSTRY.

OPERATIONS: ORGANIZED, COLLECTIVELY MECHANIZED, WELL TRAINED, WELL PLANNED

Key method of development

Current Problems

Our own innovative approach for Vietnam

Science-based precision + sensible practicality

Farmers grow by practice and hearsays. No science, no technology...

We must combine our experience and knowledge with science-based planting and production. With harder working manpower, we can be better than our neighbor countries. We will be much more inventive than our neighbors without the use of bio and hormone stimulants.

Uniformed, organized planting for mechanization

Farmers not organized so will do everything on their own schedule with limited tools, equipment

By providing (a)  training and farming manuals (to the extent of usability), (b) organize growers into groups for (c) combined mechanization and (d) specialized pool labor service, we can work fast more uniformed, least cost, consistent results and least infestation.

Like to mechanize but lacking of money for equipment

Farmers are poor to buy; those with equipments will exploit those without...

Regimented in small units and schedule all mechanized/service work; Pool mechanization and pool specialized services cut costs, work faster and can use a few machinery for larger acreage.

Planting/product Consistency; Strong insect, disease control program

Farmers use crude and ineffective treatments for infest problems; some also illegal, dangerous medicines, bio agents that may cause health issues

We will train local government staff, university students (paid for tuition) and scientists to engage into an organized monitoring, support, problem-solving...This will build friendships and work relationship.

Export Packing - processing

Ea wholesaler will use export as a mean to control, manipulate farmers and their prices...

Export dept becomes a part of arm and not a wholesale dealer exploiting or manipulating farmers. Farmers work with VINAREX as production dept. We must build updated processing/shipping plants.

Facility/Transport

Farmers store/work from houses, etc not sanitary, can transmit diseases, insects, etc

We will study, design simple buildings and get farmers to work as a team to build we also develop a community

Training, education. Establish agric education course, exams Certification to pesticide users

Farmers in Vietnam are so poor so most may not afford formal schooling let alone training about agriculture.

Training and education are essential to quality products and self-correction, innovations. We will set up training classes, exams, certification about pesticides, environment, ecology, sanitation, plant pathology, mechanics work, tool construction, machine operations...Establish standard exams for these work.

Organized Support services

Farmers work alone and do everything alone so costs more, no product consistency, too much manual work...

With an organization, with organized farm sites and regimented, scheduled mechanized and pool support services, we can save money, work faster and also create jobs to family members of farmers  to become service providers to farms.

 

CROP SELECTION: DIVERSE, MULTIPLE, DISTRIBUTED THRU AS MANY PROVINCES AS POSSIBLE

For the protection of the interest of farmers and of Vietnam, we will not list specific crops here. Crops are selected on the bases of  (a) Export suitability and market profitability  (b) Development/production suitability for Vietnam  (c) Special Order Contract (d) Special needs of known market or special needs for Vietnam. Each crop are studied, designed, and executed with carefully and scientifically known processes designed to exceed current exports from other leading countries in the World.

Key CROP GROUPS

Current Problems

Our own innovative approach for Vietnam

SELECTIVE EXPORTABLE FRUITS

Vietnamese farmers and wholesalers are with limited knowledge of the world market; wholesalers are more interested in profit rather than development

Fruit crops must be limited to exportability and careful planning as fruits are often subject to plant quarantine, special insects of diseases. We have carefully selected 8 most profitable crops for Vietnam and also improve or modify few other existing crops

SELECTIVE ROOT CROPS

These are not well developed in Vietnam for export and can be one of the most feasible crops for Vietnam

Though Vietnam has lesser experience with these crops but they can be some leading exports for Vietnam to compete against China, Thailand, and some Central American nations. We have selected 7-8 crops in this group for Vietnam and we should start them asap.

HYDRO GREENHOUSE

This group is not more immediate export. Vietnam vegetable crops are poor both in quantity and quality.

About 80% of some 25+ vegetable items of this group are not for export but for domestic consumption. These are bacteria-free hydroponics grown for urgently needed supply for cities and also for public health reasons. They are developed for cash-flow need of farmers, rescue the bad image of Vietnam's vegetable, improve tourism/hotels/restaurant industry.

MECHANIZED-INDOOR CROPS

Not yet developed well in VN. Some business people tried to develop but keep secrets for profit. We'll change that

This can be millions annual income for our organization within 3 years. We have blueprints to develop over 10 crops for various reasons: Cash flow, public health, better national image for VN, immediate cash for farmers while waiting for other crops.

ORNAMENTALS, INDOOR FOLIAGE, POTTED FLORALS AND CUT FLORALS

Though VN has strong potential but must be planted, harvested with higher standards and more scientific than now.

These crops are for longer term development. They require more than 4 yrs to fully developed but can bring more money per Ha than others.

We plan to design and produce our own structures to encourage more industrial manufacturing growth for VN

PINE AND MUSK GROUPS

Vietnam has good potential to compete with Thai and PI production, We are still very poor and outdated in our planting

These groups if we develop them correctly, we can add millions within 3 years for both domestic and foreign markets

SPECIALTY FORESTRY PROGRAMS

We have some valuable wood but not well protected and not re-developed.

We have in mind to start to develop various high valued forestry crops in central and north VN. These takes many years to developed but great for certain isolated high lands with large number of unemployed.

We will develop at least 4 species of great wood for VN

PHARMACEUTICAL AND  COSMETICS MFG MARKETS

Again, these crops are not well known; some may know but do not distribute info or plant for their own wealth and don't share with others...

This is another area of strong potential. We can develop them for farmers for extra income and for ingredient sales to mfrs in VN and overseas.

SPECIAL SEEDLING CROPS

This must be developed for export as well as for urgently needed site for long term maintenance of seedlings.

This is another area of strong potential. We can develop them for farmers for extra income and for ingredient sales to mfrs in VN and overseas.

DEVELOPMENT STRATEGIES:  EMPLOYMENT, POVERTY, ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH, PRICE-PROFIT

KEY STRATEGIES

KEY ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL OBJECTIVES

SPREAD OUT TO MORE PROVINCES FOR DISTRIBUTION OF WORK, MINIMIZE PRESSURE ON CITIES (infrastructure, sanitary, housing, etc) ALLEVIATE POVERTY, HUMAN & ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS IN RURAL VIETNAM.

Poverty and joblessness in the countryside leads to excessive city populations to add more problems to cities especially sanitary, diseases and artificial housing values/cost. Establishing agricultural and economic systems to the countryside will alleviate city problems, lower housing pressure/cost and discourage real estate manipulations.

SCIENTIFICALLY LOCATED AND ADAPTED TO LOCAL CONDITIONS AND DIVERSIFICATION OF CROP VARIETIES, TASTES, STYLES.

We must redistribute crops scientifically to expand product tastes, flavor diversities; We will select crops and suitable technology and artificial support structures to locate sites to poor provinces, while also select the natural conditions for certain crops presently using lands that can be for other better uses, etc.

HYDROPONIC GREENHOUSE TO SERVICE ALL MAJOR CITIES TO IMPROVE PUBLIC HEALTH, VEGETABLE SUPPLY SYSTEM, TO IMPROVE BAD IMAGE OF VIETNAM-GROWN VEGETABLE, TO IMPROVE TOURISM-HOTEL-RESTAURANT INDUSTRIES.

Sickness from vegetable supply nationwide is a bad economic, social and image problem for Vietnam. It is also a public health threat affecting many other industries. Our created greenhouse/hydro bacteria-free vegetable system for cities will lower costs, great for public health, create better future children and also revive industries such as hotels, tourism, etc.

TO LOCATE SUPPORT MANUFACTURING, MATERIAL SUPPLY, NEW LIGHT INDUSTRIES AT PROVINCES WITH LIMITED AGRICULTURE, NATURAL OR OTHER RESOURCES

We will create support industries, agriculture-related supply industries, etc. at poor, disaster-stricken provinces. This is to spread economic bases, promote domestic solidarity and social responsibility among provinces. This strategy is not just economic.

INTELLIGENT EXPORT MARKETING, MAXIMIZE EXPORT PROFIT, MINIMIZE INTERNAL CONFLICTS BY ORGANIZATION AND CHANGED RELATIONSHIP WITH FARMERS AND OTHER DEALERS.

We plan to build a more intelligent export marketing system to maximize profits externally rather than exploiting farmers in the old operating style. Improved internal relationship with farmers lead to better production, cooperation; Relationship with other wholesale exporter also must be organized to collective strength - not weakness.

MULTI-LEVEL SUPPORTS FOR EVERY AGRICULTURE SITE OR CROP, HUMAN SUPPORT PLANS FOR FARMERS FAMILIES.

Each development sites or province is set up as a social and economic system - not as a single operation. Support economic and human plans are designed to improve life and living to farmers family. This create life long commitment from rural families to agriculture.

BI-LATERAL SUPPORT TO-FROM AGRICULTURE AND OTHER BUSINESS/INDUSTRIAL PLANS FROM VINAREX.

This means to set up support/other industries to assist agriculture during its infancy; then use agriculture at developed years to support further growth of these industries because agriculture or food supply is more stable and without technological changes.

PROHIBIT USE OF BIO-CHEMICALS, BIO AGENTS, HORMONE STIMULANTS, PHARMACEUTICALS ETC. ON PLANTS, ANIMALS AND BETTER PROTECT ECOLOGY, ENVIRONMENT, BETTER SANITATION SYSTEMS.

The use of bio agents for growth, diseases will not be used by us and are actually bad for export and for Vietnam's image. Official prohibition is a strategy to shift attention to other exporters such as CHINA and THAILAND but also to protect long term interests of Vietnamese agriculture and public health of the people.

DIVERSIFICATION AND WIDE SPREAD OF EXPORT TO ANY SMALL NATIONS: TO SPREAD MARKETS, TO IMPROVE OUR SOCIAL, CULTURAL, POLITICAL AND TOURISM IMPLICATIONS.

We can attend to large markets but also must also develop smaller, diversified markets from smaller countries, including Africa. This is to lessen competition in large markets (leads to lower price) and also has very important social, political and cultural objectives.
