According to the department, one of the notable scientific research projects is tissue transplant technology which helps create high quality seedling plants and has been applied in ginger, banana, taro, amomum longiligulare and orchids. 

Over the past years, the province's agriculture sector has applied technologies such as greenhouse, net house and drip irrigation into production, in order to increase the productivity and quality of products. 

Increased application of technology in production encourages the establishment of diverse agricultural projects, including projects on processing and producing anise; on investment in high-tech wood processing; and on breeding cows.

As of April 2020, Lang Son province had 1,400 businesses registered to operate in the fields of agriculture, forestry and fisheries, accounting for 46.5% of the total number of enterprises in the province.

Currently, the province has established 8 specialized production areas focusing on crops of high economic value, including anise in Van Quan, Binh Gia and Van Lang districts with total area of more than 34,000 hectares, average annual output of over 10,000 tons of dried anise, and total revenue of more than VND2.5 trillion, excluding services and processed products; and custard-apple in Chi Lang district with an area of over 1,500 hectares, annual output estimated at over 27,000 tons, and economic value of over VND300 billion per year. In addition, the province also has advantages in a number of fruit trees and forestry products with high export value such as persimmon, pine and medicinal plants.

According to Ly Viet Hung, Deputy Head of the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, in the years to come, the province will continue to develop 1,200 hectares of tea in Dinh Lap district; bring the province’s key product to the one commune-one product (OCOP) program; and process and export anise and custard-apple products to Europe, North American countries and China./.
