Especially now, Van Yen people not only produce traditional cinnamon, but also implement the organic cinnamon production process, contributing to improving the value of cinnamon and protecting the environment.
With an area of 5 hectares of cinnamon over 10 years of age, for many years, the family of Mr. Tran Van Bang, Doan Ket hamlet, Xuan Ai commune has no longer sprayed herbicide for cinnamon, instead of conducting grass release by machine.
Mr. Bang shared that in the past, his family and other households in the village still sprayed with herbicide and fertilized when cinnamon was young to make cinnamon grow fast; But in recent years, everyone is aware of the harmful effects of pesticides, so every family buys a lawn generator to distribute.
Along with that, there are many households in the village now using vascular water and water on the cliffs, if planting and tending in such an organic way also ensures that the water source is not affected, the environment is also protected.
Like Mr. Bang's family, Mr. Pham Van Bac's family, Doan Ket village has long not used pesticides and fertilizers. The entire area of 20ha cinnamon, from 3-20 years old, he only distributed grass, no need for synthetic fertilizer; According to him, the soil here is good, so every time you grow cinnamon, just clear the grass and burn, then proceed to grow cinnamon, cinnamon grows like that, only 2 times a year.
For the extraction process, after peeling cinnamon from the hill, it must be dried on a high platform or clean yard, not near areas with chemical fertilizers, chemical drugs, and pesticides
Currently Van Yen district has 200ha of organic cinnamon, to reach the standard of organic cinnamon, people have to plant and care towards sustainability, enhance soil fertility and biodiversity; Do not use synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers ...
This is also an opportunity and motivation for Van Yen's people to improve the position of cinnamon trees, create and enhance the brand name of Van Yen cinnamon to have a firm foothold and reach far in the domestic and international market.
