Can Tho (VNA) – A delegation from Japan’s Nomura Trade Co. Ltd led by Shuhei Tabata introduced its automated turnip sowing and harvest machine to the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho during a working session on October 18. 

The machine also has a sensor to measure weather conditions, including humidity.

Tabata said Japan is one of the countries taking the lead in the fourth industrial revolution with several inventions used in agriculture.

Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Thi Kieu said Vietnam values Japan’s technologies, adding that the application of automated technology in agricultural production is an inevitable trend.

She suggested the Japanese side survey soil and weather conditions in the Mekong Delta to adjust the equipment appropriately.-VNA
