A LOCAL agricultural firm owned by the head of the Cambodian Rice Millers Association (CRMA) said Monday that it had exported more than 13,000 tonnes of dried red corn to Vietnam since early August. CRMA President Phou Puy said Vietnamese buyers could not get enough of the crop, which is a popular animal feed. The company has sourced the red variety of corn from Pailin, Battambang and Banteay Meanchey provinces in western Cambodia, he said. It paid farmers about US$0.12 per kilogram and sold dry corn for $183.52 per tonne, or around $0.18 per kilogram.
