VIETNAM AGRICULTURE                                                                                 


In 2016, the primary food crops suffer from climate, livestock & aquaculture grew.The Northern region suffered from drought at the start of the season, and extended rainfall with flooding near the harvest time (July, August). The rice growing area reduced by 14,700 hectares, loss of 30kg yield per hectare. The Southern region, excessive rainfall and flooding at the start of the winter season also lowered growing area & productivity. Livestock enjoyed a favorable year with little disease outbreak. Good disease control practice and good price for meat encouraged farmers to re-invest to expand the herd. Aside from environmental issues relating to coastal water pollution in the Central of Vietnam, the fishery & aquaculture sector enjoyed stable growth.


SUPPLY CHAINS IN AGRICULTURE IN VIETNAM                                           


Vietnam received a 55.7 score on the 100-score scale for supply chain operation, 60.6 score for product quality control and 48.4 score for farm produce trade. Compared with the Philippines, Vietnam excels in product quality control but is inferior in the supply chain operation and trade. Vietnam’s scores in trade are even lower than Cambodia and Laos. Lack of investment in logistics services is blamed for big losses in agriculture. Farm produce is a major export item which makes up 18-20 percent of the total national product. However, most agribusinesses are small and medium scale, with the number of export products not large. Meanwhile, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the expenses on logistics services in Vietnam are relatively high, which weaken the competitiveness of Vietnamese products in the region. This explains why many producers and exporters don’t want to use package logistics services. This results in big losses during the harvesting, processing, storage and transportation.  A report of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) showed that the average loss rate is 25-30 percent. The loss is a little bit higher in seafood processing, at 35 percent, while it is up to 45 percent in vegetables and fruit. This is blamed on the low mechanization level in agricultural production and limited transportation capability. A World Bank survey showed that Vietnam’s mechanization index is low at 24.4 score, equal to Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar and far below the Philippines. The transportation index in agriculture is lower than Laos by 10-15 score. Experts pointed out that logistics play an important role in agriculture production, because the longer it takes to transport farm produce, the higher failure rate will occur. If the problem cannot be settled, Vietnam will find it hard to join the global production chain.
