Technical Cooperation

Project Name: Royal Project Foundation Technical Assistance Horticultural Development Project (Thailand)
Project Description: The project aims to improve the quality of fruits and vegetables produced as part of the Royal Project in northern Thailand by enhancing technical exchange between Taiwanese and Thai agricultural specialists, as well as increase interaction between Taiwan and ASEAN countries, thereby facilitating the future development of cooperative, multilateral relationships.
Overall this project will:
  1. Introduce vegetable and fruit varieties for trial selection and adaptation; conduct yield-oriented trials to select varieties that are well-adapted to the climate in the northern highlands of Thailand; extend verified, high-yield varieties to farmers for mass cultivation and production.
  2. Establish a passion fruit tissue culture technique that can produce virus-free plantlets and extend such plantlets to farmers to renew their stock of seedlings.
  3. Produce grafted seedlings of kumquat and purple passion fruit for extension and demonstrate such grafting techniques to farmers; arrange for Royal Project stakeholders to take a study tour to Taiwan and invite Taiwanese experts to visit the Royal Project, as well as organize training workshops and a regional agriculture symposium.
