Hi-tech agriculture has to match specific needs

Hi-tech agriculture has been riding a new wave of investment in recent years, with the Government viewing technology as key to restructuring the sector, achieving food security and improving produce quality. Nguyen Anh Phong of the Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development speaks to Viet Nam News reporter Nguyen Linh Anh about the new spirit of innovation.

Viet Nam has identified the development of hi-tech agriculture as the sector’s development orientation in the coming years. However, it is said that farmers have not grasped this concept fully and correctly. Can you comment?

Although the term “hi-tech agriculture” has been around for quite a long time, it seems that there is still confusion about what it means. Most people generally understand that it means a technology-based farming method, which sounds pretty sensible, but is actually insufficient.

Yes it can be said that term has only been understood...
