Update: 14:17 | 26/07/2020

(BGO) – Exploiting local potentials and advantages, Tan Yen district (Bac Giang province) has gradually expanded the fruit cultivation area toward commodity trend to build product trademark. 

Mentioning fruit tree in Tan Yen district, many people remember Phuc Hoa early ripen lychee land. The early ripen lychee helped Phuc Hoa strongly overcome the obstacles of a difficult commune in the district, especially when “The lychee production and consumption cooperative” was established in 2012 and successfully created the brand of early ripen lychee.

The early ripen lychee is grown in expanded area to get higher and higher productivity, quality to become the key fruit tree in the district. 380 out of 615 ha of local lychee are cultivated under VietGAP standard, 5 ha of lychee are grown in line with GlobalGAP procedure. The local farmers earned over 150 billion VND (6.47 million USD) in 2020 lychee season. Moreover, Phuc Hoa commune has more than 50ha of guava produced under VietGAP procedure.

In Hop Duc commune, star apple fruit is on the development way with total area of 12ha. Thanks to the favourable climate, soil and water, Hop Duc star apple fruit is sweet, delicious with signature taste.

In 2017, the district succeeded in building the brand “Hop Duc star apple fruit”. After that, the fruit is cultivated in several communes of Lien Chung, Viet Lap and Cao Xa. With the average productivity of 10 – 12 tonnes per ha and selling price of 30 – 40,000 VND per kg, each ha of star apple fruit can bring an income of 250 – 300 million VND (10,787 – 12,945 USD) per year.

The statistic showed that, 1,500 ha out of over 3,400 ha of fruit growing area in the district are developed under VietGAP procedure. Particularly, early ripen lychee, star apple fruit and guava have origin traceability and package. Annually, the fruit productivity reaches nearly 30,000 tonnes with estimated value of over 600 billion VND (25.8 million USD).
