An agriculture and trade fair underway in southern Dong Nai province is providing a venue for farmers to seek fresh know-how from scientists to improve their production.

The week-long fair features a wide range of signature farm produce and aquatic products of the southeastern region on nearly 400 pavilions, looking to encourage local consumers consume more locally-made items.

A “Farmers’ bridge” programme was held on November 29 for farmers and representatives from agricultural co-operatives in the region and localities nearby to get their questions on modern farming techniques answered by agriculture officials and scientists.

The fair will close on December 3.-VNA
