Towards more profitable and sustainable vegetable production systems in north-western Vietnam

This project aims to enhance the profitability and sustainability of smallholder vegetable farmers in north-western Vietnam, through improved engagement with high-value markets (domestic and export) and integrated resource- and disease-management practices.
A comprehensive market analysis for indigenous and conventional vegetables will identify opportunities for smallholders. The project will collect baseline data on socioeconomic characteristics (e.g. household income and nutrition), and on factors affecting crop yield, soil function, and water and nutrient balance. It will test value chain and postharvest interventions, and use modelling to recommend best management practices. The research will focus on women and ethnic minorities in Sa Pa and B???c H??, L??o Cai province.
