NDO – The Rynan Smart Fertilizers Limited Company held a ceremony on January 13 at Long Duc Industrial Park in the southern province of Tra Vinh to inaugurate a smart fertilizer plant, the first of its kind in Vietnam.

The five-hectare plant, with an annual processing capacity of 50,000 tonnes, carries a total investment of over US$35 million.

According to Doctor Nguyen Thanh My, Chairman of the Board of Rynan Smart Fertilizers, the smart fertilizers will be coated with an environmentally-friendly high-tech polymer material, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60%.

In addition, smart fertilizers only need to be applied once, with the amount less than conventional fertilizers by between 40 and 60%, but the crop yield could increase by more than 10%.

Earlier, Rynan Smart Fertilizers also organised a smart fertilizer experiment on an area of 200 hectares in Tam Nong district, Dong Thap province.

The results show that the production of rice under the technical process and the use of smart fertilizers has reduced environmental pollution to the lowest level and helped farmers cut seed and fertilizer costs.
