Vietnam – Netherlands: Strengthening cooperation in developing high value and sustainable agriculture

The Netherlands has a world-class developed agriculture with extensive experience in manufacturing innovation, agricultural business investment, application of scientific and technological research results and human resource training in agriculture. This is the basis for Vietnam to study, acquire and apply to promote the advantages of Vietnamese agriculture

Currently, Dutch agriculture focuses on high-tech applications, intelligent agriculture in the direction of circulation. Due to the small land fund, the Netherlands has adopted the technology of “using capital to replace land”. To create high soil performance, the Netherlands has formed a greenhouse system with the most modern technology in the world. At the same time, the Netherlands has studied the conversion of crop and livestock structure in accordance with natural resource conditions.


Using accurate agricultural technology is considered a potential solution in coping with land and food crises in the context of arable land shrinking and climate change. Digital agriculture is emerging as a key promising solution with efforts to meet global nutritional needs as well as address the growing environmental crisis. Yields have proved the advantage of precision farming, the Netherlands harvested more than 20 tons of potatoes per hectare while the world’s average yield is 9 tons.

In addition, the Netherlands is also the leader in productivity and value added in many agricultural products such as vegetable seed production, tomatoes, fruit and vegetable industry, milk production and processing … Thereby helping to add value. Agricultural exports of the Netherlands a country with a small area (equivalent to the Mekong Delta of Vietnam) ranked second in the world, just after the United States. Not only focusing on high value agricultural production, the Netherlands is at the forefront of researching and developing truly sustainable agriculture in the direction of circulating agriculture.

In the framework of the project “Strengthening the capacity of fruit and vegetable industry in the North and Central of Vietnam” is implemented under the sponsorship of the Dutch Government (hereinafter referred to as OKP project – http: //okp.vnua .edu.vn) from 2019 to 2022, Vietnam National University of Agriculture will coordinate with Dutch consultancy partners to build an Innovation Center for Fruit and Vegetable products in the direction of circular agriculture (called HIC) at the Academy follows the Dutch model. The project promises to bring breakthrough steps to our country’s agriculture and well serve sustainable and high-tech agricultural training programs in the coming time. At the same time, this is an opportunity for Academy students to study, experience, apply theoretical knowledge and have the opportunity to receive scholarships, participate in student exchange programs at universities. study top in the Netherlands.
