Dong Thap: Worried about flood season shrimp.gdsadmin
Shrimp farming on the foot of rice fields in the flood season has brought high profits for many farmers. This year, the flood water returned nearly 1 month so the shrimp “went to the field” earlier. However, in the complicated situation of upstream water level, many shrimp farmers were very worried.
People in flood season are low day by day because the water suddenly drops.
Mr. Nguyen Tien Giang, from Binh Thanh commune, Hong Ngu town, said that this is the fourth year his family stocked shrimp in flood season, but there has not been any year when the water level has “swept” like this year. At the beginning of August, the water was increasing day by day, but by the end of the month, the country dropped sharply and now the difference between the two times is nearly 1.6m. “In the beginning of the flood season, when the water was rising quickly, I mobilized labor to raise the net by nearly 2m, but it was not long before I had to spend more money to hire the workers to lower the net for fear of the wind and the rain and sun. With the current situation, every day I monitor the water level in the shrimp field twice to have a timely response solution “- Mr. Giang said.
Binh Thanh commune currently has 97.7 hectares of shrimp farming area in flood season, accounting for over 90% of shrimp farming area of Dong Ngu Town. Currently, shrimp farming of farmers is at the age of 30 to 40 days old, developing normally … However, many farmers worry that if the water continues to decrease, the risk of disease will burst on shrimp. Mr. Nguyen Van Bua, a shrimp farmer for many years, said that most of the farmers in the flood season are not active in water sources, only a few households with dykes can actively supply water to ensure Shrimp development, so now the risk of pre-harvested shrimp is expected for households who have not been active in water sources is very likely to occur if water continues to decline.
Mr. Nguyen Huan – Deputy Head of Economic Department of Hong Ngu Town said that the headwaters when flowing downstream will carry certain pathogens. In particular, the time of outbreaks of shrimp diseases is when the floods recede, because then, the organic matter in the soil will contaminate the water source, plus the waste from food and shrimps, causing the water source to be polluted. infected. Therefore, the flooding of water up and down erratically in the past time also makes the risk of epidemics arise greatly …
