Coffee growers learn new techniques from Dao Heuang

Dao Coffee is one of the best Ive tasted. Hope it will reach our market soon...else I just have to  wait for my friends to send me some.


Coffee growers learn new techniques from Dao Heuang

 
Vientiane Times, 29 Jan 2010
 
Coffee producers in Pakxong district, Champassak province are set to
benefit after Dao-Heuang Group helped to train them in methods to
obtain better harvests and higher income from their plantations.
 
The one-day training session on how to plant good quality coffee was
held in one of Dao-Heuang Group's coffee gardens and led by an expert
from Vietnam .
 
President of the group, Mrs Leuang Litdang said the the training was
part of the group's contribution to helping improve living standards
of coffee producers in the district.
 
“The reason for organising the training is to help all coffee
producers in Pakxong district to produce large enough harvests to
supply to Dao-Heuang Group, because we have plans to construct a new
coffee processing factory,” Mrs Leuang said.
 
During the training, Vietnamese expert Mr Le Dinh Chien explained that
if two coffee trees are planted together they will produce more beans,
and if one dies there will still be another remaining.
 
Another technique he discussed was using dry cow dung for fertiliser.
 
“Previously, we have supplied coffee trees for growers, and we will
continue to supply seed and introduce them to new techniques,” Mrs
Leuang explained.
 
“We have trained villagers about ways to use fertilizer but they
didn't take enough care so they received a low yield,” she said.
 
Mrs Leuang said that if coffee trees are not properly looked after,
production will decrease every year.
 
“We would like to encourage villagers to produce more coffee to sell
because this is a way to help them improve their living standards and
help the government to eradiate poverty.”
 
“If it is well-maintained, one hectare will yield about 15 to 20
tonnes, so if villagers plant two to three hectares of coffee they
will have enough money for their everyday needs,” she explained.
 
“ We buy one kilogramme of coffee for 3,500 kip. Now we need to buy
more coffee from the villagers,” said Mrs Leuang.
 
Dao-Heuang Group is currently planting 250 hectares of coffee and last
year harvested more than 600 tonnes from its own plantations.
 
Every year it exports between 4,000 and 7,000 tonnes to Japan,
Switzerland, America, New Zealand, Germany and Poland.
 
Previously, Dao-Heung Group has helped to supply coffee seed for
villagers and taught them how to maintain the plants, said the head of
the coffee producers' group in Katord village, Pakxong district, Mr
Somboun Xaybouakeo.
 
He added that training in coffee planting and plantation maintenance
is important for villagers to enable them to increase the quantity
they produce.
 
“I gained a lot of new knowledge which I will use in my coffee garden
and teach to other villagers. I hope Dao-Heuang Group will continue to
support the villagers and teach us new techniques,” Mr Somboun said.

  Thank you for sharing the information with us.  I hope
you're right about the new techiques because in the
near future I am thinking about investing in the coffee
plantation myself.  The informations that you bring forth
is very accurate.  I know this because i had the changed to
visit the Doa Heuang plantation and the new processing
plant myself.  However; i have seen something else when
i was there.  I noticed that during the harvesting season
there were lot of local students picking the beans which
is about two to three months out of a year, and i also
see alot of vietnamess there too.  The local elder told
me "they stayed here all year around".  These people 
don't even speak laos....well maybe "sabaidee".  I am
just stating the facts and nothing more then that.

        So what do you mean by that ?  Good or bad ? they don't speak Lao  and work in Laos. Are they legal or illegal  residents? If they don't speak Lao so Lao must speak Vietnamese and Chinese  in order to work and communicate with them because  the business owners are Vietnamese and Chinese.

That's  ok Brother, as long as they coming in and help contributed to our local economy that's fine with me. these old folks won't demand any special treat ment like free health care, free housing, and free school, and as matter of fact, they won't, and never will if they're illegal residences. by saying this. it' doesn't mean i support it ok. they already there, and maybe the place lack of man powers that's why they hire an illegal workers to do the job....

i am doing is stating the fact.  You can take it and turn it

and good or bad is for you to decide.

         I confuse with the government policy lately . What good is it if the Vietnamese and Chinese come to Laos and the Lao government take the farmers' land d give to the Vietnamese and Chinese To build hotel and casinos , resource and golf course and also rubbers plantation and other construction project such dams and road and airport and government building and brought their own workers so all the money and profit they will brought back to their countries. What 's Lao get out from those investment. OR only from leasing the land and tax ?

  I assumed that some of the Laos government officials
is probably getting paid underneath of the table, The
central government is probably get the initial fee on
the lease of the land, yearly property tax, sale tax upon
harvesting and also a promised to employed the local
villagers.  Judging by the comment above i think the
laos government fail on that count.

 Correcting if I am wrong . According from the past the Chinese brought their own workers and don't hire any Laotian so do the Vietnamese.

Soon there will be more Chinese and Vietnamese laborers in Laos and they will acquire Lao citizenship and become part of Lao population. In the next 50 years or so, Lao native will be the minority.

Yes, Brother. you absolutely right.There were more than 200 something thousand lao worked in thailand it either legal or illegal, the reason, the pay, stable job and stable income. that's why we kindda short on manpower in our country. only left with elderly workers to do a small minor job. in today workforce, there's lot of young lao workers float into thailand to find a stable jobs, it' either factory work or housekeeping job, but, they think they can make more money in thailand than our own country. but, i still think that short of manpower is not really a problem, the major problem is Pay-rate and other fling benefit that go along with the job.. and as far as i concern, our lao government don't have any minimum-wag law yet. Am i right?....

        Do the foreign workers such as Vietnamese and Chinese get pay more than Lao workers?  Do the Chinese workers have medical benefit ?

 I guess  most the migrant workers in China earn about $3 per day or less . So in Laos they might earn about the same. I don't know about the Vietnamese in Vietnam how much that the Vietnamese workers earn in Vietnam perhaps much cheaper than Chinese workers in order for the foreign investors to move from China to Vietnam.
