Judging from the actual production and harvest in various places, agricultural situation scheduling and other aspects, this year, the area of winter wheat in the country has remained basically stable, the grain is plump and firm, the first- and second-class wheat has increased significantly, the quality is the best in recent years, and the output has increased by more than expected.
Li Jianguo, a major grain grower in Jiaomiao Town, Qihe County, Dezhou City, Shandong Province:Compared with last year, more than 200 jins more per mu of land. The average yield per mu is more than 1,400 catties, which is unexpected.
Zhao Guangcai, a researcher at the Crop Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, consultant of the wheat expert steering group of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs:This year is indeed a bumper harvest. The increase in total yield was mainly due to the better coordination of the three factors of number of ears, number of grains and 1000-grain weight. The technical measures have been well implemented, providing technical guarantees for increasing wheat production.
This year, for the first time, the central government implemented the assessment of the party and government for food security, expanded the scale of incentive funds for large grain-producing counties, issued a subsidy of 120.5 billion yuan in advance for the protection of arable land, and successively allocated a one-time subsidy of 30 billion yuan for farmers who actually grow grain, and continued to increase the level of wheat, The lowest purchase price of rice has formed a strong synergy of focusing on agriculture and grain.
Lv Xiutao, deputy director of the Plantation Management Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs:We strengthen and improve the food safety assessment mechanism, consolidate responsibilities at every level, implement policies and measures, and go all out to do a good job in summer grain production by region and link.
This year, the central government has attached great importance to wheat production, provided strong support, and released a strong signal, which is rare in many years. The central government allocated more than 7 billion yuan to support wheat production. All localities have made every effort to fight floods and rush to sow, and do everything possible to stabilize the area of winter wheat at 336 million mu. Promote scientific guidance services throughout the country to promote strong and stable production. More than 200 counties have carried out green, high-quality and high-efficiency actions for wheat, and demonstrations have led to large-scale and balanced yield increases. A series of extraordinary and strong measures have effectively reversed the disadvantageous situation of late planting and weak seedlings, and the wheat yield and quality in the main producing provinces have exceeded expectations.
This year, the quality of wheat continued to be optimized. The area of high-quality special wheat that is in short supply in the market increased to 38.5%, an increase of 1.2 percentage points over the previous year. A batch of new high-quality and high-yield varieties such as Zhengmai 136 showed an obvious trend of increasing production.
