According to Cam Van Thang, head of Mai Son district’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, the locality is home to 80 hectares of red-flesh dragon fruit farms. The majority of these locations are concentrated across several different communes, including Chieng Sung, Na Bo, Hat Lot, and Chieng Mung.
Authorities in Mai Son district have released informative adverts and instructed local farmers to apply organic farming models in order to work towards achieving higher levels of economic efficiency. Indeed, farmers based in the province harvest an average of 10 tonnes of dragon fruits per ha during the third year of planting.
At a current market price of VND20,000 per kg for type one, local farmers look set to earn VND200 million.
