    With experience doing nearly stuffy 30 years (from 1987), Tiger and his wife felt very clearly the value of the change in productivity, yield, and quality of cashew nuts in recent times. Years ago, he had himself studied orchard grafting improvement by bringing 50 trees for productivity, low quality of "experiments".

    The result is that after two years, productivity in this tree groups saw improvement, seed variety, the left big, strong, beautiful, high recovery rate of workers. Beliefs about grafting orchard renovation has been proved by practice.

    True that time (2014), Vinacas has programs to support farmers renovated garden compound, he boldly registration and "aggressive" rehabilitation of more than 300 trees (600 trees in total). By now, the entire 6 hectare yield has averaged more than 3 tons / ha (previously only 1.5 to 2 tons / ha), plus the price was high, and his wife had "fresh fruits" in the middle severe drought weather.

    Similarly, Mr. Hoang Van Quy (11 villages, Long Ha) also participated in support programs orchard grafting of Vinacas renovated since 2014. Previously, he does not invest more by productivity and prices that are very low, averaging less than 2 tons / 2 ha, grossed only 30-40 million per season.

    After a period of efforts to rehabilitate and take care of the garden, this stocky he said: "Certainly there will be 3 tons on 2ha, the current price will collect about 100 million, minus all costs" pocket "at least 70 million".

    Mr. You also said that the next year, when the adult slips, make sure productivity and quality orchard will also increase significantly. "My wife and I and 3 children are living on this garden. Previously only enough to eat, and will have plenty of time to worry about other things for the family, "he said cheerfully quarter.

    According to MA Do Thanh Trung, Head of Agriculture Phu Rieng district, the district is over 20,000 articles, an average yield of 1.5 tons / ha, the annual output of over 30,000 tons.

    Due to good behavior, intensive focus so many families have yield 3 tons / ha, collected about 100 million per hectare, "eat off" rubber and coffee "moment.

    "Many people previously seen shift to the low price of rubber, coffee, sitting hours pity. Increased productivity, high cost things like this, everyone is excited about her children at all, "Trung said.
