Green growth, development of farm economic models, sustainable production areas are identified as the main directions of Dien Ban's agriculture industry today and in the coming years.

     Farm model

        On the last day of the year, Tam Rau ecological orchard farm of Mr. Phan Quang Tam (Dien Phuoc commune) was crowded. His Taiwanese pear guavas like inviting people to come. At the price of VND 25,000 for a kilogam, Mr. Tam's farm sells guava pears about 10,000 VND higher than the market price. According to him, the factor that makes the difference is product quality. He does not use chemical fertilizers to almost all fruit trees of Tam Rau farm. He uses microbial fertilizers, green manures, and environmentally friendly organic manures. Currently, the farm has about 500 Taiwanese pear roots, these are wrong variety of guava, fragrant and crispy. On average, three times a year, he makes a profit of about 500,000 VND/tree after deducting costs.

          Agricultural production according to concentrated farm model has become the main direction of Dien Ban in recent years. Up to now, the whole town has 62 farms that meet the criteria prescribed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, most of which operate in a closed manner in combination with husbandry (fish, chicken, duck, cow, pig...). In particular, pig farms associated with businesses bring good results, contributing to increasing incomes and creating jobs for many local workers.

          

   According to Mr. Van Duc Thu in Ha My Dong B block, Dien Duong, with this linkage form, farm owners don't worry about market prices or product output because the company guarantees the supply of seed, feed, and food and product consumption. So the income should be stable. Currently, Mr. Thu is affiliated with C.P Vietnam Livestock Joint Stock Company - Da Nang branch to raise 4,000 pigs. With an average payment of VND 3,800 - 4,800/kg (live weight) (depending on the percentage of dead pigs, the percentage of slop remainder...), the company has to pay to Mr. Thu for each brood (5 months on average) is up to several hundred million dong. Dien Ban has about 24 pig farms, most of them are concentrated in the East of the town.

          According to Mr. Nguyen Duc Choi - Head of Dien Ban Economic Department, the farm model and production area play an important role in agricultural and rural development as well as contributing to the household economy stabilization in Dien Ban today and in the future. Besides, pig farms and concentrated cow breeding models are also appearing more and more, especially in Go Noi. Two hamlets of Ben Den and Phu Tay have nearly 300 households organizing concentrated cow breeding with over 1,000 cows (out of a total of nearly 4,300 cows in Dien Quang commune). In addition to cow husbandry, Dien Quang commune has also planned large areas of raw materials such as: peanuts in Phu Dong village (10 hectares), strawberries in Ben Den village (5 hectares)... forming specialized production areas in the direction of goods.
