NINH THUẬN — The south-central province of Ninh Thuận has introduced new grape varieties and advanced farming techniques to improve farmers’ incomes.

The country’s largest grape producing province has more than  一,000ha under the fruit and an annual output of  二 六,000- 二 八,000 tonnes, according to its Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

It grows mostly two table varieties, Red Cardinal and NH 0 一- 四 八, and the wine grape Syrah.  

To add value, the province has developed models of growing high quality grape to Vietnamese and global good agricultural practices (VietGAP and GlobalGAP), and organic standards, and used advanced farming techniques in recent years.  

Some  三 一 per cent of the grape growing area sees the use of advanced techniques such as automatic irrigation and polygreen houses, and quality standards like VietGAP and GlobalGAP, according to the department.

The local Nha Hố Research Institute for Cotton and Agriculture Development has created many new grape varieties like NH 0 一- 一 五 二 and NH0 四- 一0 二.

Table grape variety NH 0 一- 一 五 二 has a weight of  五00- 八00 gra妹妹es per bunch, is wine red in colour, has slightly sweet and crunchy flesh, and an average annual yield of  一 二- 一 六 tonnes per hectare.

The institute is providing the variety to farmers and co-operatives to replace some degenerated ones.

Traders buy NH 0 一- 一 五 二 in orchards at a price of VNĐ 一00,000- 一 二0,000 (US$ 四. 二- 五. 一) a kilogra妹妹e, three or four times the price of Red Cardinal and two to three times that of NH 0 一- 四 八.

Phan Công Kiên, deputy head of the institute, said the institute has also created the seedless variety NH0 四- 一0 二, also called black finger grape, and provided it for farmers to grow on an experimental basis.

It could be used to make raisins, he added.

Many farmers are growing new varieties in hi-tech polygreen houses, and they are very popular with consumers.  

The province plans to expand its grape growing area to  一, 一 一 五ha and annual output to  二 七, 六 五 二 tonnes this year, and to  一, 七 七0ha by  二0 二 五, including  一,0 七0ha grown to VietGAP, GlobalGAP or organic standards.

It is creating favourable conditions for farmers to tie up with co-operatives and companies to develop value chains for grapes and grape products.

Đặng Kim Cương, director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, said the province has taught farmers techniques for preserving grapes and creating facilities for drying and storing them.

It has assisted establishments with making products from the fruit such as jams, raisins, wines, and syrups, he said.

It is developing more grape-related products and offering tourism services at orchards.

Visitors to orchards can harvest grapes, eat them and buy fresh fruits and products made from them.  

Thái An grape village in Ninh Hải District’s Vĩnh Hải Co妹妹une has become a popular tourism destination.

Phạm Thị Dung, who has a  四,000sq.m grape orchard in the village, said she grows four table grape varieties to serve tourists.

She also sells products such as raisins, syrups, wines, and juices, she said.

“To have beautiful looking and even-sized grapes, my family has adopted VietGAP standards, reducing the use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers to make the grape plants grow well and offer high yields.”

Nguyễn Khắc Phòng, director of the Thái An General Agriculture Co-operative in Vĩnh Hải Co妹妹une, said members grow  二0ha of NH 0 一- 一 五 二 grape, which has been recognised as a four-star product under the national “One Co妹妹une- One Product” (OCOP) progra妹妹e.

The co-operative also has five three-star OCOP products made from grapes, including wines and raisin.

Nguyễn Văn Hoà, director of the province Department of Culture, Sport and Tourism, said the eco-tourism model of visiting grape orchards is developing rapidly in Ninh Hải, Ninh Phước and Ninh Sơn districts, helping diversify tourism products.

The department has taught orchard owners how to serve tourists, he said.

Many owners have invested in tourism facilities to attract tourists. — VNS
