In 2019, An Long Cooperative signed a contract to produce 68 hectares of new rice varieties applied under the safe rice process, highly supported by members. In 2020, the cooperative continues to plan to find partners and has implemented rice varieties such as Ts24, Ts25 and DS1, and so on produced according to the safe rice process with high consent from cooperative members.

During the operation, in order to attract more members, the cooperative also implemented many preferential policies such as technical support for farmers, support for seeds, materials, money withdrawn in advance, and so on to cover the costs of the services from sowing to harvesting. At the same time, the cooperative bravely applied high technology in production, using unmanned aircraft to spray insecticide in the farming field.

Up to now, the cooperative has organized the service spraying insecticide to nearly 300 hectares for farmers in some communes of Duc Hoa and Duc Hue districts. Recognizing the practical effects of the application of advanced technology in the field, many households currently contact cooperatives to use unmanned aircraft services.

Generally, it is quite good to spray efficiency, spray evenly, save time, cost, labor and protect farmers' health. This is a pretty practical model that many farmers are in need”.
