Vietnam's pepper output is estimated at 80,000-90,000 tons in 2007, down 10-20 percent over 2006, mainly due to unfavorable weather conditions and pests, local newspaper Vietnam Agriculture reported Thursday.

The country has in recent years intensified investment in applying advanced techniques in growing, harvesting and processing pepper to turn out high-grade products.

Vietnam now houses 52,500 hectares of pepper, with an average output of 2.3 tons per hectare. Southern Binh Phuoc province alone has nearly 13,500 hectares.

Vietnam, the world's biggest pepper exporter, shipped abroad 51, 000 tons of the product worth 153 million U.S. dollars in the first seven months of this year, down 42.3 percent in volume but up 17.6 percent in value over the same period last year, according to the country's General Statistics Office.
