Project

Towards Resilient Coffee Farms in Vietnam

Introduction

This project builds on the learning of previous interventions. We will scale up smart irrigation techniques and organizational strengthening of the producers. A concern is the high variety of agroinputs and the lack of visibility towards their quality (fake or counterfeit issues) while reaching a fairly high price on the market. This project aims to build a commercial micro-distribution activity, offering two packages proposing farmers generic products that are price competitive (GOLD) and high-technology products of an higher standard and yielding capacity (PLATINUM).

The Project

Precision irrigation towards watersmart agriculture.

  • Pioneering direct coffee sourcing
  • Soil analysis results-based crop nutrition
  • Appropriate handling, application and disposal of agrochemical products
  • Starting up rehab services with advanced planting materials and farm management under agroforestry clusters
