Authorities from the northern province of Ha Nam held a working session with representatives from Japan’s Aeon Agri Create and Fujitsu companies on October 29 to discuss agriculture development using information technology (IT).

Yasuaki Fukunaga, General Director of Aeon Agri Create, introduced IT models for farming in Japan, including smart-phone appliances recording data on plant growth and insects, which will be transmitted to managers.

The company also asks farmers to set up a system to monitor food safety from cultivation to harvest, processing and storing.

Fukunaga said Aeon Agri Create has built 19 farms equipped with advanced IT in Japan, 15 of which meet GlobalGap standards.

A representative from Fujitsu Vietnam pledged to work closely with Aeon Agri Create on the project.

Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Mai Tien Dung committed all possible support in land, transport and irrigation to Aeon Agri Create to launch the model in the province.-VNA
