  • Description

    While North China is still ice-bound, Hainan Island off the coast in South China is already adorned with ripening fruits and blossoming flowers.

    Hainan Island is sparsely populated, and the crops used to be tended in a rather crude way. After the collectivized strength of the people's communes came into play, it became possible to lavish meticulous care on the land, and the crop yields have increased from year to year.

    Spring comes early on Hainan Island. The commune members have already begun transplanting early-rice seedlings.
