There is a new website to cater to rice farmers in Vietnam. The site, http://www.caylua.vn, deals with themes such as rice production, rice biology, farming techniques, irrigation, nutrition management, epidemics control, harvest and post-harvest technology, seedling nursery technology and rice products.
The new site was developed with technical help from the International Rice Research Institute and is a result of the institute's agreement with the Vietnam's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to transfer farming technology, provide expertise and train farmers. Funds for developing the site were provided by the Japanese Government and the Asian Development Bank. "The new website is expected to provide broader and deeper knowledge for farmers," said Vietnam's Minister for Agriculture Research and Development Dao Xuan Hoc.
