The district Party Organisation has issued a project on developing high-tech and organic agriculture until 2025, towards developing sustainable agriculture and improving product competitiveness in the market.

The district has directed units, divisions, and communes to set up links between businesses, farmers, and cooperatives in the production and sale of agricultural products, forming an agricultural value chain.

It has also promoted research and application of new science and technology to production; and encouraged the implementation of research works and promising experimental production projects.

In the field of cultivation, the district has directed specialised agencies to coordinate with consulting units and scientists to focus on researching and selecting plant varieties suitable for local soil and climate conditions; build and replicate effective models, such as the intensive plum farming in Van Ho and Long Luong communes, the intensive tea cultivation in To Mua commune, the Thuy Huong 308 rice growing model in Chieng Yen commune, and the Lisianthus nursery, planting and care technical transfer.

The district has developed cooperative groups and cooperatives for growing fruit trees and safe vegetables, and a model of applying economical irrigation technology for some fruit trees, such as drip irrigation and mist irrigation technology; while stepping up market research and promoting the district's agricultural products.
