1. Agriculture, forestry, and fishery

In July, localities across the country focused on speeding up the planting of winter rice, caring for and harvesting early summer-autumn rice, and ensuring planting and harvesting in the best time frame. The livestock industry has been facing difficulties due to the high price of animal feed, which makes farmers not assured to re-herd and expand production scale. Forestry production took place relatively smoothly, logging was actively deployed. Aquaculture grew positively due to the increase in demand and a rise in export prices of key aquatic products such as pangasius and farmed shrimp; marine fishing faces many difficulties due to high gasoline prices.

a) Agriculture

Winter rice

As of July 15, the whole country cultivated 1,021.6 thousand hectares of winter rice, equaling 92.3% of the same period last year. Of which, the Northern provinces cultivated 671.9 thousand hectares, equaling 85.9%; provinces in the South cultivated 349.7 thousand hectares, equaling 107.6%. The progress of summer rice planting this year was slower than that of the same period last year due to the impact of the prolonged La-Nina phenomenon leading to slow growth of spring rice and late harvest in the northern provinces. In the southern provinces, the cultivated area increased mainly in the Mekong Delta because it was not affected by drought and salinity like last year. Currently, rice is developing relatively well, the area of early rice is in the stage of greening and tillering.

Summer-autumn rice

By mid-July, the whole country had planted 1,915.9 thousand hectares of summer-autumn rice, equaling 98.3% of the same period last year.

The sowing area decreased because this year’s autumn-winter rice crop was affected by adverse weather, in addition, the price of fertilizer and input materials for production increased. In this year’s autumn-winter rice crop, the Agriculture sector has directed localities to have the appropriate time frame to ensure safety and efficiency; synchronously apply advanced technical and farming processes to reduce production costs, improve product quality, and at the same time support and encourage farmers to produce high-quality rice varieties.

Annual crops
