In the first phase of this year, 1,000 acres of protein mulberry planting bases were established in Sulifang, Xihu Town, and Baiquan Town. Since the Sulifang planting base planted mulberry seedlings on April 21 this year, it has been planted in accordance with technical requirements for protein mulberry planting and field management. During the growth period of more than three months, the mulberry trees are currently growing well. After technical appraisal by the agricultural and rural departments, the quality and yield have reached the expected targets.
Reporters at the protein mulberry planting base in Sulifang, Wusu City I saw the mulberry leaf harvester shuttle back and forth to harvest mulberry leaves in the 500 acres of mulberry tree field.
Agricultural machinery driver Bai Long said: “I just learned to drive a mulberry With a leaf harvester, now I can harvest 30 to 50 acres of mulberry trees every day, and the harvest volume is large and fast.”
The mulberry harvester driven by Bailong is harvesting on one side, while two tractors are busy hauling the leaves on the other side. According to the requirements for harvesting protein mulberries, the harvested fresh branches and leaves must be transported to a fixed drying field for drying as soon as possible.
Our expectations are even better. The first batch of protein mulberry branches and leaves were purchased back at a price of more than 3 yuan per kilogram. In the later period, we will purchase the mulberry leaves and branches separately, and the price will be higher than the current price.”
It is understood that protein mulberry, also called feed mulberry, is a low-investment , fast-acting, high-efficiency economic crops. Alpinia mulberry loves sunshine and begins to take root and sprout in an environment of 12℃. The growth of branches and leaves will be accelerated in an environment of 25-30℃. Wusu City is located in the arid zone of the north temperate zone, with a continental climate and sufficient sunlight. The number of sunshine hours throughout the year reaches 2,600-2,800 hours. The climatic conditions are completely suitable for the growth of mulberry trees. Based on three crops a year and an average yield of 500 kilograms per mu, the annual income from planting protein mulberry per mu will reach 4,500-5,000 yuan, and the economic income far exceeds that of other cash crops.
