While Vietnamese fields have been producing an abundance of rice, the breeding sector last year had to import more than US$4 billion in corn, wheat and soybean feed to breed animals, according to Thanh Nien News.

Figures from the agriculture ministry showed that Vietnam imported $3 billion of animal feed products in 2013, 2 percent more than rice export revenues for the year, and more than $1 billion in corn, soybean and wheat flour for processing animal feeds, a surge from the previous year.

The ministry also said Vietnam imported 582,000 tons of corn worth $150 million in January, six times in amount and 4.6 times in value compared to corn imports in January 2013.
