There are several main agricultural product groupings, and Hai Duong carrot plants, in particular, are concentratedly produced on a huge scale using modern technology, generating straight fields of flying storks. Hai Duong carrots have a distinct crunchiness and sweetness that distinguishes them from other carrots.
The yearly planting area is around 1.600ha, with an annual production of over 80.000 tons manufactured in accordance with safety standards (Vietgap, GlobalGap) for internal consumption and export. 80% of Hai Duong carrot output is processed and cold-preserved before being sold to Korea, Japan, Europe, Malaysia, Singapore, the Middle East, and other countries; the other 20% is eaten locally in the form of fresh tubers and water. Spices such as crushed, jam, and dried carrots are given to firms that make instant noodles, instant oatmeal, and so on.

At the end of October, after nearly two months after planting, the carrot plants are developing uniformly and have begun to sprout a little tuber.
