The clear Xipo river flows all the way around Haiyangshan. Where it passes, citrus trees grow. Dongyuan village, Gaoshang Town, Xing’an County, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region is hidden in the ocean mountain. < / P > < p > in the middle of winter, the ground has fallen frost, and cauliflower is growing vigorously in the farmland of Dongyuan village. “In our place, the colder the weather, the better the price of cauliflower. By the beginning of next year, cauliflower can be picked five times. ” Peng Jian, mayor of the town, said that the cauliflower Interplanted by villagers was planted one month before the harvest of the third crop, fruit and corn. Through unremitting military and local exploration, Dongyuan village has fully implemented the “water and drought rotation” farming mode. Now, one thousand mu of farmland in Dongyuan village can be planted four seasons a year. ” Wang Shengguang, political commissar of the people’s Armed Forces Department of Xing’an County, said. Some years ago, Dongyuan village was a famous poor village. For thousands of years, the villagers who have lived in the mountains for a long time have been using the farming method of planting the same crop three seasons a year. < / P > < p > in 2016, the Ministry of people’s armed forces of Xing’an County set up a point to help Dongyuan village, a deep poverty-stricken village. “After visiting and investigating, agricultural experts believe that the backward farming mode and production concept lead to low agricultural production capacity in Dongyuan village.” Wang Shengguang said that the continuous cultivation of the same crop has led to a continuous decline in farmland fertility. < / P > < p > under the guidance of experts, the people’s Armed Forces Department of Xing’an County mobilized the villagers to implement the “water and drought rotation” farming mode: in spring, rice is planted first to achieve self-sufficiency in rations; in summer and autumn, corn is planted for two consecutive seasons; in winter, cauliflower is Interplanted in corn fields. < p > < p > “after the implementation of the” water and drought rotation “farming mode, the land in Dongyuan village is not idle, and people are endless.” The most important thing, Peng said, is that this mode of farming achieves a natural link between planting and fertilizing. After the corn is collected, the straw is turned into the soil and soaked in water for half a month, then it can be turned into organic fertilizer for crops. Now, fruit, corn and cauliflower are the main industries in Dongyuan village Wang Shengguang said that the water, soil and air in Dongyuan village, which is close to mountains and rivers, are relatively clean, and the fruit corn produced is sweet and popular. < / P > < p > in order to make the fruit corn industry in Dongyuan village bigger and stronger, the officers and soldiers of the people’s Armed Forces Department of Xing’an County went to the market to find experts, and successively planted more than 20 kinds of fruit corn that sold well in the market in the village. At present, the five kinds of fruit corn planted in Dongyuan village are green and pollution-free. < / P > < p > “this autumn, under the guidance of agricultural experts, we also successfully planted black fruit corn which is more expensive and can be eaten raw directly. Next summer and autumn, we are going to plant it on a large scale in the village. ” Peng Jian said. The “water and drought rotation” farming mode has achieved the goal of ten thousand jin per mu and ten thousand yuan of benefit in Dongyuan village Peng Jian calculated an account: every mu of fruit and corn is planted twice a year, and the income of this item alone is at least 6000 yuan. Cauliflower can earn at least 2000 yuan per mu. Corn and rice straw can be fermented into silage to feed cattle, sheep, pigs and other livestock. < / P > < p > “the farming experience of” water and drought rotation “jointly created by the army and the local government in Xing’an County has ignited the people’s passion to become rich and well-off, and now it has been extended to the whole ocean mountain.” Peng Jian said.
