For the initial phase of this cooperation, National Chung Hsing University’s Global Research & Industry Alliance (GRIA) will provide Faprathan Farm with technical assistance on sowing. If the efforts yield good results, the university will then export seeds from Taiwan to the farm.
Chang Yu-tai (張佑泰), general manager of Faprathan Farm’s parent firm, A-Best, said the farm would focus on tomatoes and vegetables for the time being. The GRIA will help the farm look for varieties most suitable for Thai soil.
If the initial cooperation proves successful, the market for Taiwanese seeds will then expand in Thailand through the farm, said Chang. He added that such cooperation will help elevate both the quality of varieties and sowing techniques in the Southeast Asian nation. [FULL STORY]
