Nearly 200 households joined the pilot cultivation of ST25 variety in the summer-autumn crop in 2021 and the spring crop in 2022 on a total area of 17 ha in six communes. 

The test results in the two crops showed that the ST25 rice variety is relatively well adapted to the soil and climate conditions and farming practices of the locality; has good resistance and is less affected by external adverse factors. The variety also showed good resistance to pests and diseases. 

The rice quality is good. The average yield of the summer-autumn an spring crops are 48 quintals and 50.1 quintals per ha, respectively. After deducting costs, each hectare generates a profit of 30-31 million VND. 

As many as 873 households in the four communes of Van Yen were provided with 40kg of ST25 variety per ha for cultivating 100ha in the 2022 summer-autumn crop. 

Vietnam's ST25 rice won the title "The best rice in the world" in 2019, and the second prize at the "World's Best Rice 2020” contest. 

The mass production of ST25 rice not only helps promote the shift of crop structure on rice land, but also contributes to the development of high-quality goods in the direction of ensuring food safety and hygiene.
