Twenty per cent of the investment will be sourced from the State budget, with the rest mobilised from banks, enterprises, organisations and individuals.
As many as 35 hi-tech areas will be formed, aiming to raise high-tech agricultural product value to 30-32 per cent of the total value of the agriculture sector by 2030.
Bac Giang also targets two or three enterprises in the province being recognised as high-tech agricultural firms.
Specifically, the province will establish 17 hi-tech areas for vegetable farming with a total area of 1,710 hectares in Lang Giang, Luc Nam, Hiep Hoa, Yen Dung and Tan Yen districts, two areas for flower cultivation in Hiep Hoa district and one tea production area over 300 hectares in Yen The district.
Three lychee areas will also be formed in Luc Ngan, Tan Yen and Luc Nam districts, along with two areas for citrus, three for mushrooms, two for pig breeding and five for chickens.
An area will also be developed for the research of new agriculture technology, with close partnerships with agricultural production businesses.
To implement the plan, Bac Giang will promote information dissemination on technology and models of high-tech application, while introducing high-tech farm produce to markets and retail systems.
Additionally, the province will strengthen inspection of farm produce quality, while creating a favourable legal framework for the development of high-tech agricultural areas and supporting the promotion of the products.
Bac Giang will also hold training courses on high-tech applications for agriculture, while associating high-tech farms with eco-tourism and calling for investment in the field.
In the first half of 2017, Bac Giang formed 22 hi-tech agricultural models.
