HCM CITY (Biz Hub)— CropLife Viet Nam, a coterie of giant agricultural corporations, is holding what it calls its 2nd Stewardship Day in six Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta provinces today.

Held in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development's Plant Protection Department and relevant local sub-departments, the event hopes to attract more than 2,500 farmers who will be informed of and encouraged to adopt effective and responsible use of crop protection products.

The first Stewardship Day held last year captured significant interest from both local authorities and farmers for a one-day seminar and training workshop.—VNS
