Vietnam: Mekong Delta farmers sell out 80 percent of flower production for Tet holidays

Preliminary statistics showed that although it is still nearly two weeks until the lunar New Year, it is estimated that around 80 percent of flower production at Cho Lach District in the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre has been sold with prices higher than those in the same period last year by 5-10 percent upwards. 

Dr. Bui Thanh Liem, Director of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of Cho Lach District, said that although saltwater intrusion was earlier than previous year and its developments were more complicated, by actively implementing prevention measures, most areas of flowers for Tet holidays have been growing normally and basically, there was not much damage.

According to Dr. Liem, it is expected that farmers in Cho Lach District will provide more than 11 million items of various types of flowers for the lunar New Year. Fortunately, thanks to favorable weather with not too harsh sun and less unusual rains, most flowers for Tet holidays have enjoyed a bumper crop, of which, ochna integerrima and chrysanthemum morifolium are expected to bloom exactly at lunar New Year.
