Vietnam plays a crucial role in the global agricultural supply chain, ranking 15th in the world for agricultural exports. Faced with challenges such as climate change, the Covid-19 pandemic, natural disasters, and greenhouse gas effects, sustainable agricultural development is key to ensuring national food security.
NATRA consistently provides long-term directions and strategies for sustainable agricultural development to production units and agricultural companies, utilizing science, technology, and promoting the digital transformation of the agricultural sector. NATRA’s team of agricultural engineers and experts helps farmers enhance the productivity and quality of crops such as rice, coffee, and fruits, leading to effective annual output growth of 2.8-3%, surpassing regional and global competitiveness.
NATRA proposes specific, comprehensive solutions for each locally characteristic agricultural product, conducting efficient cultivation area research and boosting export market growth, aiming for Vietnam’s agriculture to become one of the world’s leading industries by 2050.
In parallel, Vietnam boasts diverse natural resources, fertile land, and a young, intelligent workforce capable of applying modern farming methods and machinery to optimize resources in implementing agricultural projects across thousands of hectares. Emphasis is placed on rare and precious plant varieties within the three groups of tropical, subtropical, and temperate zone agricultural products.
NATRA’s advantage in providing effective guidance to businesses in building sustainable agriculture lies in digital transformation. Indeed, many enterprises have successfully applied digital transformation, integrating advanced technology into agriculture resource collection, inspection, distribution, and rational cultivation area management.
This will be the future trend that helps transition agriculture from traditional to modern, sustainable practices.
In Vietnam, agriculture serves as the backbone of the economy, ensuring political stability and improving people’s livelihoods. NATRA recognizes that “Green Agriculture” is an essential direction to contribute to the creation of value for sustainable agricultural development. NATRA’s expertise will support businesses in gradually transforming cultivation models, production, and crop cultivation to meet growth and green consumption demands. Concurrently, we assist farmers in overcoming difficulties and challenges in developing green agriculture based on research aimed at sustainable agriculture.
Moreover, businesses utilize technology to process and recycle by-products and waste, reducing costs, and protecting the environment and agricultural ecosystems, thereby stabilizing the socio-economic situation. The market demand for clean agricultural products is increasing, so households, units, and production enterprises need to have a long-term strategy for developing green, organic, and circular agriculture with clear objectives and vision.
Additionally, leveraging local advantages, natural resources, and optimizing labor costs to increase productivity and quality with highly competitive agricultural product groups leading in the region and the world such as rice, maize, coffee, pepper, cashew nuts, seasonal fruits… thereby ensuring national food security.
NATRA will assist customers in addressing the root causes of lingering issues, namely:
    • The problem of organic production planning, government mechanisms, and policies on green agricultural development applying high technology.
    • Barriers to production and consumption due to small and fragmented scales unable to implement widespread organic production models.
    • The ability to grasp scientific and digital technology influences on green agricultural development, where productivity cannot grow.
    • Unconscious habitual thinking patterns, such as using inorganic fertilizers, chemical pesticides in farming, and livestock farming that destroys ecosystems.
To integrate into the green agricultural economy early, businesses need to prepare resources including capital, labor, technological knowledge, and enhance international cooperation to attract financial support from government agencies and agricultural associations.
Together with NATRA, let’s create a comprehensive and cohesive solution system tailored to each production model, enhance expertise in farming and livestock, standardize cultivation processes, and mitigate risks to position sustainable green agriculture.
