Sedge harvest season begins in Mekong Delta

The sedge, after being chopped, is dried on the field. Drying is an important stage and usually requires one to two days of sunshine. After drying it is taken home or sold to traders right on the farm.

Best quality dried sedge fetches VND15,000-16,000 per kilogram, and lower quality types, VND9,00011,000.
