An agricultural competition project (ACP) funded by the World Bank has passed the halfway point and is making a positive impact in seven Mekong Delta provinces.

Support activities for farmers launched by the project, which began in October 2012 and will run until June 2014, include technical training in rice production processes, building rice stockpiles and provision of agricultural machines such as rice dryers and combine harvesters.

The two agricultural cooperatives of Tan Cuong and Tan Binh in Dong Thap province has received support from the project worth 20 billion VND (950,000 USD).

The combine harvesters will help farmers in the cooperatives improve their grain quality and increase production efficiency.-VNA
