[en] Located in the Red River Delta region, Hung Yen province has 923000 ha of total
land area, of which agricultural land area occupied 60.67%. The agricultural land area per
labor is 0.1 ha. However, it has been annually decreasing due to the development of
industrial zone, construction of urban zone, expansion of road… For these reasons, the
stainable development for production and processing of agricultural products plays a very
important role in job creation for farmers who loosed their own agricultural land,
avoidance of quantity and quality loosing of raw agricultural products and increase in
economic efficiency of agricultural production and processing.
The production and processing of canna are traditional jobs of rural households in
Hung Yen. They not only have been creating jobs for rural households but also increasing
in their income. Beside the social and economic benefit created by these activities, the
processing activity has caused many negative consequences. It led to environmental
pollution due to its waste, overuse of chemical substances. Desiccated of vermicelli in
bad condition resulted in the unsafe food. Therefore, this study is conducted to deeply
investigate both positive effects and negative consequences created by production and
processing of canna vermicelli in term of economic, social and environmental aspects.
This study concentrates on the farm households; discuss advantages and disadvantages of
production inputs, processing techniques and output market of their products from
arrowroot to vermicelli; and find out solutions for the sustainable development for
production and processing of vermicelli.
