IRRC: Vietnam 2011
Rice Situaon
Our current acvies are focused on the Mekong Deltain Vietnam, but address the Red River Delta as well. TheMekong Delta has 19 million people and 2 million hectaresof rice in 13 provinces. The Delta plays an important roleto naonal food security with 50% of naonal rice produc
on and 90% of the exported rice. The poverty rate amongrural households in the Delta is around 20%.
Current Acvies
An IRRC Country Outreach Program (ICOP) in An Giangis the focal acvity. The program was launched in 2009as

1. In 2011, the An Giang best pracce model

was changed into the AgriculturalCompeveness Project of the World Bank.2. In 2010, the diusion of ecologically basedrodent management (EBRM) in the Mekong andRed River deltas led to an esmated 20,000 farmersadopng the technology. Aer implemenng EBRM,rodent damage was reduced by 33–50%, rice yieldswere increased by 2–5%, and rodencide use wasreduced by 62–90%.3. Laser leveling was cered by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as a technologythat can be promoted through the extension system.4. The impacts of rice diseases, pests, and weedswere characterized at 6 sites (3 sites in the MekongDelta and 3 in the Red River Delta).
