Modern machinery promoted to grow agricultural industry
The latest in modern agricultural machinery was put on display and explained for Changsha county farmers on March 16, encouraging them to embrace cutting edge technology to improve their crops.
Experts were invited to give lectures and demonstrate how to use new equipment for planting rice seedlings, plowing fields, and spraying pesticides.
The Changsha county government has been encouraging the agricultural sector to upgrade its farming methods and machinery in recent years to keep pace with its competitors.
"Modern machinery can not only save labor but also help increase the crop yields," said Li Ping, an official from Changsha county agriculture and forestry bureau.
"The training lectures are useful for helping local farmers understand the benefits of modern agriculture machines," said Li.
