The Lam Son Sugar Joint Stock Corporation (Lasuco) expects to open its high-tech agriculture center in northern Thanh Hoa province on January 30, Chairman Le Van Tam has said.

The project has investment of almost VND200 billion ($8.91 million) and an area of 100 ha, with greenhouses, irrigation systems, net houses, plant breeding areas, and laboratories.

This is the first high-tech agriculture plant in the province and has the involvement of leading domestic research institutes and foreign experts. Many high-quality products are to be produced, such as disease-free sugarcane, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, organic fruit and vegetables, and orchids.

The project also targets to record revenue of VND1.5 trillion ($66.87 million) by 2020 and between VND2.5 trillion ($111.45 million) and VND3 trillion ($133.74 million) by 2025.
