Vietnam`s rice farm profirts lost due tp poor storage facilities
Asia Pulse, October 2, 2004
Vietnam's rice production sees an annual loss of US$150 million to $200 million due to obsolete storage and processing technology, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Post-harvest loss accounts for 9 to 17 per cent, and sometimes reach 20-30 per cent of the annual national rice production, according to ministry officials.

The Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta, which accounts for half of the nation's rice production, has a record rate of post-harvest loss at 20 per cent due to lack of standard storage and modern processing equipment, officials said.

In 1999, the country's rice basket lost 3.5 million tonnes of the total 17 million tonnes of rice produced, or 20 per cent of the total production. Farmers in the southern delta have 3,600 drying machines, meeting just 20 per cent of the region's demand for drying rice, especially during rainy season.

The whole region has only one storage house in Hau Giang Province, capable of storing and preserving 30,000 tonnes of rice, far below the region's demand of several million tonnes. Most of the rice stock is preserved using traditional methods, in bamboo baskets and earthen jars.
