A glimmer of hope for Vietnam’s white gold

Rice is referred to as Vietnam’s “white gold” because it is not only a valuable staple crop but also one of the country’s major export products. In 2015, Vietnam exported 6.61 million tons of rice, making it the world’s third-largest rice exporter after only India and Thailand. (This was originally published in Rice Today in March 2016)
