Tu Van Hay’s family has a 2,900 sqm vegetable farm. In 2017, Hay started growing asparagus on nearly 1,000 sqm of his land, and since then his family’s income has vastly improved.

There are now 62 Cham ethnic farmers growing asparagus in the locality. On average, the local cooperative buys more than 500 kg of asparagus per day from the farmers.

According to experts, the hot, dry climate and sandy soil in NinhThuan is perfect for growing green asparagus.

Asparagus has been recognised as one of the 12 products Ninh Thuan is focusing on, and the province will continue to support and expand asparagus farms with high technology, diverse products and the application of electronic stamp codes for traceability./.
