Tóm tắt: Vietnam is a key partner of the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) in tackling issues of rural poverty. Productivity on either a land or labour basis is low in Vietnam, and there is limited availability of arable land. An increasing population and competition from urban and industrial uses are pushing more smallholder farmers onto marginal lands, including the sandy soils of the south-central coast. Overexploitation of land, water and soil resources, together with inappropriate farming approaches, is resulting in land degradation in these systems. – South-central coastal Vietnam is a region where research to underpin profitable but sustainable crop and livestock production systems benefits from Australian–Vietnamese collaboration. The research described in these proceedings was designed as a multidisciplinary venture linked with national research institutes, including provincially based research and extension departments. Its aim was to identify and facilitate adoption of promising resource management practices, for sustainable and profitable agricultural systems best suited to local conditions that enable improved market engagement. – At a workshop held in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, in March 2013, Vietnamese and Australian researchers shared their findings across the wide range of disciplines required to improve crop and livestock production integration. These included dealing with crop and livestock systems and available resources; the limitations to crop production on the infertile sandy soils, such as macronutrient and micronutrient deficiencies; value-chain analysis of crops with suggestions to improve farmers’ incomes; forage and cattle production; and risks of groundwater pollution from agriculture. The integration of these disciplines is a major achievement of the workshop.
