Mekong Delta targets 19.4 million tonnes of rice in 2006
The Mekong Delta, the country's biggest rice producing region, has set a target to transplant 3.8 million ha of rice for an expected output of 19.4 million tonnes in 2006, 300,000 tonnes more than in 2005.

As of the 2005-2006 winter-spring crop, the main crop of the region, Mekong Delta provinces have focused on applying technical advances and using mechanical equipment in production, striving to produce more than 8.8 million tonnes of rice on over 1.4 million ha in this crop.

The Department of Agriculture under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has suggested localities in the region to boost intensive cultivation to increase rice productivity and quality, ensuring rice volume for domestic consumption and export.

However, the Mekong Delta is facing disadvantages caused by natural calamities and pests during this time's early winter-spring crop.
