  • Description

    SPRING SOWING HAS BEGUN ON A STATE FARM ON THE BANK OF ILI RIVER IN SINKIANG UIGHUR AUTONOMOUS REGION.

    IN THE PAST, THIS AREA WAS A DESOLATE GRASSLAND RAVAGED BY WIND AND SNOW STORMS. IN 1952, HELPED BY THE STATE, THE FARM WORKERS RECLAIMED THIS STRETCH OF ALKALINE SANDY WASTELAND, TURNING IT INTO A LARGE MODERN FARM OF SOME 6,000 HECTARES.

    THIS YEAR'S SPRING SOWING IS BASED ON THE HIGH YIELDS ACHIEVED BY THE FARM OVER SEVERAL CONSECUTIVE YEARS. THE FARM DIRECTOR OFTEN GOES DOWN TO THE FIELDS TO HEAR THE WORKERS OPINIONS AND STUDY AND SOLVE PRODUCTION PROBLEMS TOGETHER WITH THEM.

    AS THE MAIZE SHOOTS GROW UP, WEEDING IS DONE BY HARROWING MACHINES.

    THE FARM WORKERS LAVISH GREAT CARE ON THE WHEAT FIELDS. THIS FARM HAS ALREADY GROWN LARGE QUANTITIES OF GRAIN FOR THE STATE. THE FORMER WASTE-GRASSLAND HAS BECOME A RICH GRANARY.
