In the fields of Mafang Village, Yuguopu Street, farmers are using reclaimed land to plant new varieties of fresh corn, and various agricultural materials are piled up on the ridge.Farmer Li Huoqing told reporters that this year’s agricultural materials are well prepared, and the fresh corn grown at home will be available in the market in two months. Everyone is confident that there will be a good harvest this year.
This year,Under the active promotion of the village cooperatives, most farmers in the village have planted fresh corn that matures quickly and tastes good. The cooperative also formulated planting plans for farmers, including seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides, and provided them with technical support throughout the entire process to guide them in scientific planting. At the same time, it helps farmers in centralized procurement and reserves the materials needed for spring ploughing for farmers in advance, so that farmers can plant more worry-free.
In order to further standardize the operation order of the agricultural materials market and ensure the supply of agricultural materials for farmers to prepare for spring ploughing, the staff of Mengzi Agriculture and Rural Bureau recently went to Caoba Town, focusing on the inspection of agricultural materials products such as seeds and fertilizers in the agricultural materials business stores. Whether the products are filed in accordance with the law, and whether there are illegal acts such as selling fake and shoddy seeds, chemical fertilizers, etc., to ensure the safety of seeds used in spring production.
