The early ripening lychee is grown in over 3,900 hectares with estimated output of 25,000 tonnes while the remaining area is to develop main season and late ripening lychees. About 13,000 hectares of lychee will be produced safely in line with VietGAP standard to give about 83,000 tonnes and 117 hectares of lychee in line with GlobalGAP standard with expected quantity of 2,000 tonnes.
Farmers in Thuong Phuong Son village, Hong Giang commune (Luc Ngan district) harvest lychee.
The district continues stably maintaining 85 growing area codes for export (36 code to China; 18 codes to the US, Australia and EU; 29 codes to Japan and 2 codes to Thailand) as well as 237 packing facilities to serve export activities.
