  • Description

    Spring has come to Hsin Hui County in South China's Kwangtung Province. This country on the Pearl River Delta is predominantly a grain-producing area.

    This year, more than 8,600 hectares of land have been sown to Chinese milkvetch - a green manure crop - in Hsin Hui County to ensure a good harvest. These plants have been successfully migrated from regions to the north of Kwangtung Province.

    A study of the soil and the sub-tropical climates shows the advantages of intercropping wheat with Chinese milkvetch.

    This year, the green manure crop here is expected to yield more than 30 thousand kilogrammes to the hectare which means plenty of organic fertilizer for the brigade's land.

    Up to now more than 1,400 hectares of the county's land have been plowed by tractors. This is 26 percent more than the same period last year.

    Rice seedlings cultivated under nylon sheets grow up fast and strong. This is a good way of ensuring increased output of early rice.

    The commune members are presently trying a new way of transplanting rice seedlings. The young shoots are first soak in organic fertilizers to accelerate growth.

    Commune members of Hsin Hui County are taking a number of measures to bring about a new upsurge in 1965's agricultural production.
