    Dear Sir our organization is intention to plant and process Setvia in Vietnam starting in the province of Ha Tinh with an established confirmed market. Upon reading your works we feel that it would be most prudent for us to seek advise from on this matter in Vietnam.

    I would be much appreciated if you could give us your recommendation and suggestions. our line of focus is planting and drying the product locally.The secondary production to be done locally is also a consideration. Please advise. Thank you and God Bless you.
