A cooperative producing standard rice has been established in Lang Bien commune, Thap Muoi district, the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap.

As the first of its kind in the province, the Thanh Liem rice cooperative sees the participations of 10 members, with a total contributed capital of over 2.1 billion VND.

It produces high-quality rice and serves consumption and agricultural services, meeting demand for stable production in the locality.

Vo Tong Xuan, a representative from the cooperative, said the model will open new prospects for sustainable and long-term rice production for both local farmers and those from other parts of the country.

He suggested the cooperative focus on building linkages and creating trust among members to increase the productivity.

Dong Thap will update the cooperative’s activities to learn from its experience and expand the model in the locality in order to perfect its agricultural restructuring scheme.-VNA
