Background: The prospect of the summer harvest looks good again this car in southwest China's Szechuan Province.
On the fertile plain in western Szechuan, wheat is already ripening on large areas of the demonstration fields of Hsi Pu People's Commune.
Selecting seeds for next year...
The anticipated increase in the yield of the demonstration fields have been achieved through the close collaboration of agronomists, village cadres and experienced peasants in research an experimentation.This year's crop will be a considerable increase over the last.
As what harvesting goes into full swing at Hsi Pu People's Commune, the work of transplanting rice seedlings is also underway.
A good quantity of base fertilizer is laid before the actual transplanting begins.
A local proverb goes: in spring, the sun is important; in summer, time is supreme.Not a minute is wasted in the work of transplanting the rice seedlings.
Ground and water temperatures in the paddy fields are tested by agronomists, who are doing their best to raise the wheat and rice yields.
The demonstration fields of Hsi Pu People's Commune are providing the commune members with valuable experience for reaping high and stable yields over large areas of farmland.
