While at the place of packingmushroom embryo, the workers are not resting their hands, at the parks of plantingmushroom, flowers or medicinal reserves, the technicians are meticulouslyscrutinizing to find out disease, adjust the humidity, the amount of water forirrigation, fertilizer to suit the plant. For many last years, Hoa Quang Bio-techExperiment Station is a prestigious address specializing in receiving,researching, applying and transferring scientific-technological advances intoproduction.

Overcoming many difficulties but with faith andlove, scientists do not only bring prestige and position for themselves but theproducts they create are also transferred, widely applied in practice,contributing to spreading out positive effects.
