Vietnam: The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has demanded that rice growers do not use cement as a fertiliser for their fields, state media has reported. The announcement follows local media reports that some farmers in the Mekong Delta province of Dong Thap were using cement on their rice fields. In a letter sent to local Departments of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Crop Cultivation Department asked local authorities to prevent cement being used in this way because it has no nutrition value for rice and it make soil unviable for crop cultivation.
