March in Yangchun is the season of spring ploughing and sowing, which is also the critical period for the first battle of food security.Each unit of the 9th Division of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps took the initiative to take the lead, compacted responsibility level by level, and decomposed tasks into regiments, companies and plots to ensure the full completion of the production target task of 780,000 mu issued by the Corps.In the past three years, the ninth Division has fulfilled the grain targets and tasks set by the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps with both quality and quantity guaranteed. The output of grain crops has also increased year by year, and the enthusiasm of workers to plant grain crops has been constantly improved.Guo Zhimin from the 166th Regiment of the 9th Division said happily, “Since 2018, the efficiency of planting grain crops has been getting better and better. It saves time and effort, and there are subsidies, and sales orders are guaranteed, and the price is very good.In the event of their own disasters, they also have insurance to cover their expenses. It is really a sure way to make a profit, and our employees are living a prosperous life.”In addition to his own land, Guo has 450 mu of land in transfer, mainly planting crops such as corn and sunflower, and he believes he will have a good harvest this year.This year, the 9th Division will continue to improve the agricultural production system, speed up the adjustment of agricultural industrial structure, and continue to work hard to stabilize grain production, refine fruits and vegetables, optimize characteristics, and promote processing.We will continue to strengthen infrastructure development such as high-standard farmland and the application of agricultural science and technology to support comprehensive agricultural development.While upholding the dominant role of household contracts for employees, we will actively foster new types of agricultural operations such as family farms and agricultural and industrial cooperatives, and develop appropriately scaled agricultural operations by means of contract farming and sharing dividends through shares.At the same time, the ninth Division will also increase support in capital, credit, land and other aspects, encourage seed production, agricultural products processing and other leading enterprises, cooperatives, employees to carry out order agriculture, forming a “leading enterprises + cooperatives + workers” business model.In order to increase employees’ enthusiasm for growing grain, we will continue to implement subsidy policies this year so that employees can enjoy tangible benefits and ensure steady progress in grain production and grain security in the Division.Chen Yunlong, deputy director of agriculture and Rural Affairs Bureau of the Ninth Division, said: “The ninth Division will strictly implement the party and the government’s responsibility for food security, fully implement the strategy of ‘storing grain in the field and storing grain in technology’, adhere to the combination of good varieties and methods, good opportunities and good farmland, and complete the construction of 49,000 mu of high-standard farmland on time to ensure the full completion of 780,000 mu of grain production target task.At the same time, we will continue to make efforts to cultivate excellent varieties, improve quality, create brands and standardize production, so as to provide strong support for comprehensively promoting rural revitalization and accelerating agricultural industrialization.”In the yard of Li Changhong, a worker of the 166th Regiment of the 9th Division, there are neat chemical fertilizers piled up, several packets of corn seeds are placed on the clean high-horsepower tractor, and more than 10 rolls of mulching film stand beside it.Li Changhong said happily, “I planted 450 mu of land this year. At present, the seeds, fertilizers and mulching film for planting have been bought, and the drip irrigation belt has also been ordered. You can just pull it when you use it.”In order to ensure the smooth operation of spring ploughing and sowing, the Ninth Division has reserved more than 10,000 tons of seeds, 1,000 tons of mulching film, 588,400 kilometers of drip irrigation belt, 32,500 tons of chemical fertilizer and 231 tons of pesticide this year. These abundant agricultural production materials not only meet the production needs of spring ploughing and sowing, but also provide a strong guarantee for market supply.In recent years, the ninth Division has adhered to the development of efficient water-saving agriculture, accelerated the transformation from traditional agriculture and animal husbandry to modern agriculture and animal husbandry, and made great efforts to build a modern water-saving demonstration base for agriculture and animal husbandry.Today, the 163rd Regiment of the 9th Division integrates drip irrigation technology with fertilization, and nearly 70 thousand mu of farmland uses drip irrigation water-saving cultivation technology.”We have eight production lines. From December last year to the end of March this year, we have produced more than 30,000 rolls, which is 90 percent of the annual quota,” said Ma Mancang, director of the 163rd Regiment of the 9th Division. “We can fully meet the irrigation requirements of our regiment this year.”Technician entry guidance technology services help grain increase production in order to improve the management level, the worker crops and several division, bureau of agriculture and rural areas, agricultural technology extending stations, agriculture (livestock) institute of science and various round field service technician agricultural development in succession to the wheat farmers fields, field view the crop growth and soil moisture conditions, and to make a timely and accurate,Scientific and reasonable management measures and planting suggestions were put forward for winter wheat greening management and spring wheat planting.”From the present situation, the temperature is still a little low, not suitable for sowing spring wheat, winter wheat to return to green water fertilizer, promote weak stability and strong control.”On March 24, Lou Ying of the 166th Regiment of the 9th Division of the Agricultural Development Service Center said while checking the winter wheat situation:”Now as the temperature rises, the winter wheat has turned green, we will be next to the winter wheat situation, but also the winter wheat density, tiller number, tiller number, winter mortality for detailed observation, a comprehensive grasp of the growth and development of winter wheat, for the service of good worker masses field management work, make adequate preparation.”Up to now, the ninth Division at all levels of agricultural science and technology personnel have gone deep into the fields to serve more than 100 workers and masses.Source CCTV net editor Li Juan reviews Min Jieyang Tao
