Initially, the team planned to conduct a preliminary field assessment in Nghia Trung commune, Bu Dang District, Binh Phuoc Province. During field visit, we found that perennial crops (cashew, coffee, rubber, black pepper, fruit tress) are the major crops in Nghia Trung commune while only little vegetables are growing by farmers. More vegetables are growing by farmers in the two nearby communes (Dang Ha and Thong Nhat commune). These 3 communes are sharing the same forest resources managed by the Nghia Trung State Forestry Enterprise with its head quarter located in Nghia Trung commune.
Our team proposed to select these 3 villages as the study area for the study on Agroforestry and Sustainable Vegetable Production in Vietnam. This study area is about 130 km from Ho Chi Minh City. It is located in Bu Dang District, in the east of Binh Phuoc Province.
