"Set of 3" VNR20, VNR10 and Huong Chau 6
Experiencing many production seasons along with the continuous changes of weather and climate, especially in the Central region, the traditional rice varieties that people here cultivate will inevitably degrade. Productivity and quality decrease, leading to low economic efficiency. Therefore, the trend of choosing new rice varieties with high yield, high quality, good resistance to weather and pests is an inevitable solution.
Determining this, over the years, Quang Nam Central Seed Joint Stock Company (Vinaseed Quang Nam, a subsidiary of Vinaseed Group) has continuously brought to the people of the Central region many new varieties of high-energy rice. productivity, quality. With the advantages that the unit's rice varieties bring, farmers in many localities have actively responded and boldly put them into production. The results are bountiful crops.
In addition to the outstanding Thien Uu 8 rice variety, over the years, the rice varieties including VNR20, VNR10 and Huong Chau 6 are gradually asserting their position in the central region. Quang Ngai province is no exception. Over the past 4 years, almost all the localities with large rice production areas in Quang Ngai province have known these three varieties. No matter where, right from the first approach and put into production, people in this province have the same assessment: Impressive!
Nguyen Van Chinh, Director of Vinaseed Quang Nam affirmed that the most important goal of the unit is to target farmers, accompany farmers in production, improve economic efficiency, for sustainable agriculture. Therefore, for many years, Vinaseed Group has constantly researched, selected and created the best rice varieties to serve farmers.
Just seeing the disadvantages of rice varieties, the characteristics are not suitable, Vinaseed Group will immediately overcome to the most optimal level to bring to the market and introduce to the people. This is the reason that the rice varieties made by this Group in the models show outstanding characteristics compared to the traditional varieties that people have produced for many years.
Having worked with the Central region for many years, Mr. Chinh admits that the agricultural production conditions in this area are very difficult. Among them, it can be mentioned that the weather is harsh, the land is not fertile, the fields are still fragmented... Therefore, in order to adapt and stand on this land, rice varieties must not only be productive, a quality that needs to have good resistance.
“Especially in the summer-autumn crop in the Central region in general and Quang Ngai in particular, the weather is erratic, the temperature is high, near the end of the season, we face storms and storms. Therefore, it is very difficult to find suitable rice varieties to cultivate in this crop.
After a long time, we have launched a very promising set of rice varieties, including 3 varieties VNR20, VNR10 and Huong Chau 6. Up to now, there have been many crops with different weather patterns, but the set This variety still grows and develops well, meets the requirements, is highly appreciated by farmers as well as the functional sector," said Mr. Nguyen Van Chinh.
Overcoming the disadvantage of the summer-autumn crop
In Quang Ngai, although in the same province, different regions have different climate and soil conditions. To demonstrate the wide adaptability of VNR20, VNR10 and Huong Chau 6, each year Vinaseed Quang Nam deploys demonstration models in many locations in the province. From there, there will be the most objective assessments of local farmers as well as state management agencies.
Old farmer Luong The Nhon (resident in Team 2, Diem Dien village, Tinh Hoa commune, Quang Ngai city) is one of the progressive farmers in the locality. In rice production, he often explores, learns from experience and applies new techniques. However, because the rice field in the village is contaminated with alum, the rice varieties before Mr. Nhon cultivated only yielded 7-8 bags of fresh rice/sao (500m2 pole, 50kg each bag).
In this year's summer-autumn crop, with the support of Vinaseed Quang Nam, Mr. Nhon put VNR10 into production. Although he approached for the first time, he was extremely satisfied when he found that the breed was easy to care for, lighter in fertilizer than the traditional varieties used in the locality. At the same time, rice plants grow and thrive, from the beginning of the crop to now, there have not been any pests and diseases.
“In particular, the productivity of VNR10 is very high. Recently, the household near my house also used this variety, reaping 1 pole more than 11 bags. My farm can be better. I have never seen such a high-yielding variety here. I will definitely continue to use this variety in the next crops and recommend it to my relatives, "said Mr. Nhon.
According to local people, this summer-autumn crop is very harsh, raining a lot and at the wrong time. Rain to nourish the tree is less, but it destroys the tree a lot. Even so, all 3 rice varieties VNR10, VNR20 and Huong Chau 6 were still very resistant, did not fall, the rice bloomed evenly, the seeds were firm, and the yield exceeded expectations.
Mr. Dinh Tan Can, Deputy Director of Hoa Tay Agricultural Cooperative (Tinh Hoa commune) said that, in recent years, people in the commune often use HT1 variety. However, over a long period of time, the variety has degraded and the yield is no longer as before, the tree also weakens and falls often. Therefore, the cooperative is very eager to find good substitutes.
“Not every seed can be used, but it must be tested to see if it is suitable for the local soil. Particularly, 3 varieties of Vinaseed performed in this summer-autumn crop model, which I find very suitable, giving good yield. Particularly, VNR20 variety is expected to yield up to about 70-80 quintals/ha. Therefore, people want these varieties to continue to be implemented in the coming winter-spring crop to demonstrate their adaptability in both crops of the year," Mr. Can said.
Nguyen Van Chinh, Director of Vinaseed Quang Nam, said that in the summer-autumn crop of 2022, the company deployed a demonstration model of varieties VNR10, VNR20 and Huong Chau 6 with an area of 15ha in 7 districts, towns, city.
“Up to this point, the above-mentioned variety is highly appreciated for its top priority characteristics in the summer-autumn crop such as: Good resistance to heat, pests and diseases. In the coming time, the company will continue to perform and expand mass production in the districts, towns and cities of Quang Ngai province. It is expected that in 2023, the consumption volume of VNR20 in this province is about 500 tons, VNR10 about 300 tons and other varieties about 200 tons," Chinh said.
Mr. Pham Ba, Director of the Sub-Department of Cultivation and Plant Protection Quang Ngai said: Currently, summer-autumn rice in Quang Ngai has not been harvested, so it is not possible to evaluate the yield. However, in general, the rate of pests appearing in this crop area is also very low.
"For the varieties of Vinaseed such as VNR10, VNR20, people in some areas in the province have cultivated and are gradually expanding the area. In recent crops, monitoring and evaluation, the varieties have the ability to grow and develop. It grows well on Quang Ngai soil, gives high yield, can withstand some pests and diseases. accurate prices, helping state management agencies have a basis for research and inclusion in the province's seed structure".
