“Vietnamese young people often think that if they study agriculture, they will become farmers in the future. That is the wrong view, because I dare say that in a few years, the agricultural sector will become the “hottest” industry in Vietnam. Mr. Juan Ferreira – Vice President in charge of global business of Monsanto Group, affirmed so at the meeting about sustainable agriculture and career opportunities.

What is hi-tech agriculture?

High-tech agriculture (NNCNC)  is an agricultural industry that is applied in combination with new and advanced technologies for production, also known as high technology in order to improve efficiency and create a breakthrough in productivity and quality. agricultural products, satisfying the increasing needs of society and ensuring sustainable agricultural development.

New technologies integrated and applied in high-tech agriculture include:  automation, mechanization  of agricultural production stages, information technology, new material technology ,  biotechnology ; new plant varieties and  livestock  with high yield and quality…; Advanced farming process, organic farming… with high economic efficiency/production unit.

This concept is widely used as agriculture applying high technology to improve production efficiency, creating a breakthrough in productivity and quality of agricultural products, satisfying the increasing needs of people. ensure sustainable agricultural development. It is forecasted that in the next few years, human resources will still be lacking and will become a hot industry.
