A training course on farming wet rice for Mozambican agricultural officials opened on Sept. 11 at the Hanoi Seed Centre.

The course is part of a tripartite project between Vietnam, Japan and Mozambique to develop strategies for growing rice, which was launched in 2010.

During the month long course, the trainees will learn about rice production in Vietnam and Hanoi in particular, as well as Vietnam’s policies to develop the agricultural sector.

They will be provided with a comprehensive knowledge of how to grow rice and also learn about different varieties, disease control, harvesting, storing, irrigation and water management.

The trainees will later go on field trips to visit successful models of production.-VNA
