Bangkok (VNA) - Thai chicken exports rose less than expected in the first half of this year due to COVID-19, according to the Thai Broiler Processing Exporters Association (TBPEA). Thailand exported 470,000 tonnes of chicken in the first six months of 2020, representing a year-on-year rise of 2 percent, with export value of 54 billion baht (about 1.73 billion USD), up 1 billion baht. The local media recently cited TBPEA manager Kukrit Arepagorn as saying the pandemic has caused Thailand’s two main markets, the European Union (EU) and Japan, to cut chicken imports. Chicken exports to the EU dropped by 10 percent as the COVID-19 situation there is not yet resolved, he said, adding that Thailand expects to export 280,000 tonnes of chicken to the EU this year, down from 330,000 tonnes last year. Meanwhile, chicken exports to Japan only rose by 2 percent because the virus outbreak had hit tourism and forced the country to postpone the Tokyo Olympic Games, reducing demand. … [Read more...] about Thailand cuts chicken production as global demand drops
Nguyen Chi Thien, deputy director of Long An Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said they had worked with Green and Green Agriculture Company to realise the plan to use UAV in agriculture. Each UAV can spray water or pesticides over 10 hectares of rice in eight hours, 30 times faster than people and can save up to 90% of the usual amount of water. Moreover, they can be easily applied in large fields or over rough terrains. Each UAV can carry 10 litres of water and proved to be safer since the farmers do not face prolonged exposure to chemicals for a long time. Thien said the use of UAV will help boost farm automation to improve productivity. Vuong Trong Nghia, chairman of An Long Cooperatives, said they had tried the UAV in Duc Hoa District. "We'll invest into the UAVs in the future," he said. Dinh Van Chan, director of An Hi-tech Agriculture Cooperatives, also tried the UAV and confirmed that it will be a huge help for farmers and limit the negative impact of … [Read more...] about Long An seeks better agricultural efficiency with UAV
