On April 16th 2018, Ivo Hooghe, Development attaché of the Embassy has visited a project funded by Green Growth Strategy Facility (GGSF) and Enabel in Ha Tinh province on the “Application of science and technology to develop a model on mushroom growing and organic fertilizer production from agricultural wastes/byproducts.
Ha Tinh is an agricultural province, therefore after harvesting annually, there’s a huge amount of agricultural waste products, especially straw, which is burned at the field by farmers, causing environmental pollution, soil degradation and waste of natural resources. With this GGSF and Enabel funded-project, straw and other agricultural wastes/byproducts are used to grow mushrooms, produce bio products and organic fertilizer for rice fields through composting method. This benefits not only the environment but also helps reduce costs for farmers.
