The Yangtze River Modern Grain Logistics Co Ltd is preparing its warehouses to store the upcoming grain, with plans to vacate 35,000 metric tons of storage space to meet the needs of the area.
The company has also focused on equipment overhauls and training of food inspectors and custodians to ensure that the acquisition process is in line with national policies and provides farmers with a reliable platform to sell their grain.
Additionally, agricultural machinery services and cooperatives are working hard to facilitate a smooth harvest.
Moreover, the Jingjiang agricultural and rural affairs bureau has publicized incentive policies for agricultural machinery fuel to support the operation of the machines.
Jingjiang is also actively promoting the eco-friendly practice of plowing deep and turning straw, to enhance soil fertility and improve the quality of grain production.
