China's Hunan Jinye Zhongwang Technology Co, Ltd and Xuanye Co, Ltd have announced to establish a model organic and bio-fertiliser processing factory to develop clean agriculture in Laos
The factory will be developed in association with the Lao Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed among the three entities. The MoU signing ceremony was attended by Bounkhouang Khambounheuang, deputy minister of agriculture and forestry in Lao and economic, and Wang Qihui, commercial counsellor of Chinese embassy to Laos, many officials from the government and the companies.
In a statement to Xinhua news agency, Vilaysouk Khennavong, director-general of the agriculture department of Lao Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, said, “The ministry through the Department of Agriculture is currently encouraging Lao farmers to produce CA in two standards, organic agriculture (OA) and good agriculture practice (GAP) to supply food safety in the domestic market.”
According to the source, Laos has to import fertilisers from neighbouring countries and lacks organic fertiliser and bio-fertiliser standards to supply to the farmers. The initiative is in line with the Laos government’s aim to produce more quality crops like rice, vegetables, tea and coffee for exports.
The project aims to investigate the potential of plant waste from vegetables, cassava, sugarcane and review the usage of wetland soil in processing good quality organic fertiliser, added the source.
