High-quality fertilizers and advanced agricultural techniques from Vietnam have helped raise the productivity of Cambodian farmers, a senior Cambodian official has said.
By supplying good agricultural equipment, Vietnam has also assisted Cambodia in ensuring food security, reducing poverty among farmers, and gradually increasing rice exports, Men Sam On, Deputy Prime Minister of the Cambodian government told a conference in Phnom Penh on April 29.
The productivity on Cambodian rice fields has tripled over the past 10 years.
Binh Dien, Quoc te 5 Sao, and Dam Phu My are the three largest Vietnamese fertilizer enterprises that have been operating in Cambodia in recent years.
Director General of Binh Dien, Le Quoc Phong, said his company’s products not only produce high yields, they are also environmentally friendly.
Phong said his company regards Cambodian farmers the same as Vietnamese farmers and tries its best to transfer modern agricultural technology for them.
As much as 15 percent of Binh Dien’s total fertilizer output is consumed in the Cambodian market.
