As a high-end vegetable, it is directly sold to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other first tier cities.” Qixing village branch secretary Chang Mingchun said. < / P > < p > Qixing village, nearly 2000 meters above sea level. The sunshine here is long, the temperature difference between day and night is large, and the frost free period of the whole year reaches more than 300 days. The clear Malong River and Niulan river flow around the village, which is the “geomantic treasure land” for vegetable cultivation. For thousands of years, the villagers of Qixing village have been growing low yield rice, corn and tobacco for a living. In 2015, the per capita annual income of the whole village was less than 2800 yuan, which was listed as the poverty-stricken village of key assistance. < / P > < p > “in order to avoid the failure of industrial projects, in 2015, our police district just formed a pair to help Qixing village, and conducted in-depth research and demonstration around the integration of production and marketing.” Kunming police district political commissar Zhang Haiquan said. < / P > < p > in the impression of the villagers of Qixing village, during that period, officers dressed in camouflage and covered with mud often took village and town cadres, as well as agricultural experts, into the fields, visited farmers, looked at water sources, and inquired about output. < / P > < p > “there are no factories for tens of kilometers around Qixing village, and the land is pollution-free. We can take advantage of the local beautiful scenery and sufficient sunshine to vigorously develop high-end vegetable cultivation.” After full investigation and extensive solicitation of expert opinions, Kunming police district helped Qixing village take vegetable planting as its core industry. < / P > < p > in order to accurately determine the varieties of vegetables, Kunming police district sent research teams to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other first tier cities to understand the vegetable market. After learning that European style restaurants, fast food restaurants, hot pot shops and barbecue shops in these cities are in great demand for high-end lettuce and are in short supply on a large scale, the police district decided to guide Qixing village to grow lettuce on a large scale. < / P > < p > in the summer of 2015, Kunming police district coordinated a large local agricultural enterprise to invest in Qixing village to build a shed. In that year, it tried to grow 500 mu lettuce. A month later, the lettuce in Qixing village is 4 tons per mu. At the end of the year, the village attracted large-scale investment to expand the scale of lettuce cultivation, attracting more than 20 large vegetable growers. < / P > < p > “villagers transfer the land to large growers at the price of 2000 yuan per mu, and then work in the park at the salary of 100 yuan per day. Some villagers only earn 30000 yuan a year from labor services.” Li Jianneng, director of the village committee of Qixing village, said that by the end of 2019, the per capita annual income of the villagers in Qixing village will reach 16800 yuan. < / P > < p > the continuous five-year assistance has also stimulated the internal motivation of villagers to get rich. Villagers are no longer satisfied with working in the park after transferring their land. At the end of 2019, after seeing the huge profits of planting lettuce, vegetable farmer Chang Mingdong transferred 30 mu of land from large growers for trial planting, and he had a good harvest that year. Chang Mingdong plans to organize villagers who have mastered the planting skills to develop lettuce planting after the first round of land transfer contract expires. < / P > < p > “in the future, we will scientifically guide our more than 1000 militia members to actively develop the industry with prosperous production and marketing, and strive to be the” vanguard “to get rid of poverty and become rich.” Xundian County People’s armed forces political commissar Fang Zhenyu said. < / P > < p > “on the one hand, we should stimulate the internal motivation of the masses to become rich, and on the other hand, we should help them solve the problems encountered in the development of production.” Recently, Ren Xingge, commander of Kunming Police District, investigated the poverty alleviation work in Qixing village. After learning that lettuce growers could not keep fresh during the peak production season, resulting in the fluctuation of vegetable prices, he decided to coordinate the relevant local departments to invest in the construction of a large cold storage in Qixing Village.
