Aiming at becoming the leading supplier of nutrient solutions to plants in Vietnam and the region with high quality products and best services, PVCFC pays special attention on R & D. All research activities of PVCFC are focussed on three major points:
CONSIDERING FORMING A NUTRIENT PACKAGE FOR PLANTS
As soon as the operation of Camau Fertilizer Plant is stable, in 2013 PVCFC developed the project “The study of chemical properties and nutrient content in groups of soil and major plants in Mekong Delta, South East and Highland areas”, for which the company has analyzed and evaluated hundreds of hectares of land and major plants in major points of agricultural zones in Vietnam. Based on it, PVCFC has co- operated with big units and centers in agricultural sector to form nutrient package solutions for plants, heading to the development of an organic agriculture, to be specific:
- To co-operate with IRRI Rice Institute to carry out the SSNM program to form the nutrient package solution to the paddy of Mekong Delta area;
- To co-operate with high tech agricultural centers (Vineco, Vien Phu...) to form the nutrient package solution to safe vegetables and fruits.
STUDY OF DIVERSIFICATION OF PRODUCTS
PVCFC always takes the product quality as the dominant standard to gain access to the market, thus the R & D team always study and continuously create to provide to the market high efficient, environmentally friendly, soil reforming, output and quality boosting agricultural products in addition to the product line of turbid grain urea with such outstanding properties as slow resolution, lasting time efficiency to plants in general and paddy in particular, preventing nitrogen loss, giving more time to the paddy to absorb nutrients better compared with traditional urea products.
In 2015 PVCFC launched the high grade product of mineral fertilizer N.Humate+TE. This is a new solution to help restore the soil fertility, boost the growth and development of plants. More than that, PVCFC co-operates with the world’s leading companies to develop other product lines satisfying the market demand like organic- microbiological products, biological minerals, slow resolution fertilizer and lines of special purpose fertilizers.

AlongwithR & Dactivities, PVCFC also pays attention to the study of improving the existing equipment and technology to stabilize and enhance the quality of products and lower the energy waste by which to lower production cost and restrict to the utmost the impact on environment. Only in 2014 and 2015 there were 95 initiatives and improvements applied and brought to the company benefits worth hundreds of trillion VND.
