The Konjac Base Is Busy With Planting, And The Industry Is Prosperous
Since April, it has been the golden season of konjac planting. In the vast rural areas of the county, the villagers seized the season to carry out spring ploughing and spring sowing, and seized the agricultural season to sow konjac. A picture of spring sowing and spring planting in the land of Zhuxiang slowly unfolded.
At the Konjac Planting Base in Gonghe Village, Muxi Town, the reporter saw that the 250 mu of land was purplish red after being sorted out. The villagers used farming equipment to dig furrows and ridges. One ridge passed through the ploughed land. After spreading the base fertilizer and sterilization, more than 30 villagers lined up in a row, holding special small hoes in hand, sowing konjac seeds one by one. On the contiguous flat land, farming machines and tools are ploughing back and forth, and the villagers are busy, forming a busy picture of spring planting and farming.
"I changed my career to grow konjac, because Muchuan has the title of 'Hometown of Konjac', konjac is not worrying about sales, there is recycling locally, and all aspects are guaranteed." The owner of the professional konjac planting cooperative said.
The planting of konjac in Gonghe Village is only a microcosm of the cultivation of konjac by the masses of the county. Right now, in Dibao, Yongfu, Muxi and other townships, villagers can be seen everywhere busy planting konjac during the farming season.
It is understood that during the "14th Five-Year Plan" period, our county regards konjac as one of the three characteristic agricultural industries, and guides owners and villagers to vigorously develop konjac cultivation through the implementation of agricultural subsidies such as policies, funds, agricultural machinery and tools, and construction of winter greenhouses. In 2021, a total of nearly 7 million yuan of subsidy funds will be paid, 23 million yuan of agricultural security loans will be implemented, and agricultural technology experts and research teams from colleges and universities will be invited to provide technical guidance to overcome technical problems such as konjac overwintering. It is expected that this year the county will develop a konjac planting area of 10,000 mu, and build a 200-mu konjac technology demonstration park. The county plans to develop more than 30,000 mu of konjac cultivation within three years.
