Northern rice fields partly converted to drought-resistant crops
As many as 35,000 ha of rice, or 4.2 percent of the total rice acreage in northern Viet Nam, will be converted to drought-resistant subsidiary crops, such as maize, groundnut plants, potatoes and sugarcanes for the winter-spring crop.

This move was taken by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development to prepare for possible severe droughts, which have hit the country frequently in recent years.

Farmers having cultivable land converted will be offered seed and fertiliser subsidies, exempted from irrigation fees and equipped with new farming techniques.

According to the Central Hydrometeorological Forecasting Bureau, in the dry season, which lasts from January until May, the water flow of big rivers in the north, including Da (Black), Thao, Lo and Hong (Red) rivers, will decline by 10-40 percent, possibly leading to fiercer droughts than last year.
