President Ho Chi Minh paid a visit to Thai Binh from December 31 to January 1, 1967. The president met with Thai Binh provincial authorities and residents and emphasized the importance of seed selection in increasing rice yield for farmers. In 1967, in response to the President Ho Chi Minh's instructions, Thai Binh province established a rice seed supply system under the Agriculture Committee – now known as the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. The Administrative Committee of Thai Binh province issued a statement on January 10, 1972, to establish "Thai Binh Rice Seed Company," the forerunner of today's ThaiBinh Seed Corporation, which is one of Vietnam's oldest seed companies.
Always consider finding a way

According to the labor hero Tran Manh Bao, the "Thai Binh Rice Seed Company", shortly after its formation, was assigned the duty of "Implementing the complete provincial-wide program of level II rice breeding" by the province. During the conflict era, an enterprise was established and implemented under a centrally planned economy. The company's operations and the lives of its employees were particularly challenging in the light of the economy. The management and staff of the "Thai Binh Rice Seed Company" were constantly on the lookout for a solution. Faced with this difficult scenario, DC (a company's level I rice breeding farm) boldly established a "piece work to employees" system in 1987. After a year of experimentation, the remarkable results were that the rice yield rose by 20% every year, and this strategy was adopted by the entire company.
Thanks to the persistent implementation of that mission, ThaiBinh seed has continued to expand in a sustainable manner, and achieving the current position. With 12 branches nationwide, ThaiBinh seed is now expanding its activities in three fields: plant varieties, victuals, and service trade.
The ThaiBinh seed corporation's leadership team was honoured to receive the Prime Minister's Emulation Flag.
Mr. Le Quoc Doanh, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, stated: “Thai Binh Seed has the most modern infrastructure for conducting research, selection and experimental testing, production, and seed processing, including two high-quality seed processing plants with advanced technology in Europe, with a capacity of 30.000 tons per year, one rice processing plant, National Standard Laboratory, coded Vilas 110, and the Researching and Crops Research Institute, with a 152-hectare scale". The deputy minister also hopes that ThaiBinh seed will continue to analyze and select rice varieties, as well as some main crops with high yield and quality, to support agricultural production in the rapidly evolving field, where climate change, natural disasters, and epidemics remain a major challenge; and strengthen the development of seed production linkage chains to actively contribute to domestic and export-oriented plant seed production.
On behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development's leadership, Mr. Le Quoc Doanh, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, praised ThaiBinh Seed's contributions to the Agriculture and Rural Development sector.
