The People’s Committee of the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong has approved a plan on the development of a 215ha high-tech agricultural project in Tram Hanh commune, the provincial capital of Da Lat.
The Cau Dat high-tech agricultural farm will include an area of 191.6ha for the production of tea, vegetables, and coffee. The remaining area will be used for the construction of support facilities, such as a showroom for product display.
The project, invested by Cau Dat-Da Lat Tea JSC, aims to apply advanced technologies to produce clean and high-quality agricultural products.
It will promote farm-to-fork production to ensure food safety and improve crop productivity, while also conducting high-tech agricultural studies and serve visitors with agricultural tours.
The province has urged the investor to coordinate with relevant State agencies to complete all investment procedures for the project to proceed on schedule.

According to the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, the high-quality vegetable production model yields between VND400 million and VND500 million (US$17,400-21,700) per ha each year. Flower production reaps up to VND1.2 billion (US$52,200) per ha each year, while tea and coffee yield VND250 million (US$10,870) per ha annually.
