Lotus Rice seeds are chosen following strict standards: Must be certified from Cuu Long Delta Rice Research Institute, strong germination potential, high purity, not less than 90% and from a single variety
In order have effective weed control and nutrient-enriched soil for the best crops, we instruct our corporate farmers to have initial land preparation right after previous harvest or during fallow period.
In Vietnam, rice crops can be either direct seeded or transplanted. In direct seeding, seeds are sown directly in the field; while in transplanting, seeds are first raised in seeded before they are planted in the field.
Our corporate farmers are trained to choose the suitable planting method based on the specific localities, types of soil and rice, and ecosystem characteristics.
The vegetative stage of rice starts from the seedling development until the first tiller appears. During this stage, the rice plants also grow in length. Consistent water supply is important for rice to develop fully..
Weed control also starts from this stage, managed by hand weeding, and in some cases herbicide application. Together with our corporate farmers, we study the most appropriate ways to have an effective weed management during land preparation and early crop growth.
With all the extensive care, the rice starts to flower, beginning the ripening stage. The best weather to shorten ripening phase is sunny and warm weather.
