On the 9th, a national key research and development plan led by the Western Agricultural Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences The ministry-provincial linkage project – “Xinjiang Cotton Pest and Disease Succession Law and Integrated Demonstration of the Whole-process Green Prevention and Control Technology System” project was launched.
The project will systematically clarify the succession patterns and catastrophic changes of important cotton diseases and insect pests mechanism, innovate intelligent monitoring and early warning technology, develop green prevention and control technology products, integrate and build a full-process green prevention and control technology system for cotton diseases and insect pests and demonstrate its application, in order to continue to promote the green and high quality of Xinjiang’s cotton industry /span>Provide important scientific and technological support for development.
Introduced by researcher Lu Yanhui, chief scientist of the project, in 2022, Xinjiang’s cotton planting area and output account for 83.2% and 90.2% of the country’s total respectively, playing a “ballast” role in the healthy and sustainable development of my country’s cotton industry. Under the new situation of cotton’s full mechanization and green development, systematic research on the catastrophic mechanism of cotton diseases and insect pests in Xinjiang and full-course green prevention and control technology has become a major strategic need to ensure the safety of cotton planting and green production.
The main task goal of the demonstration project is to clarify Xinjiang cotton under the new situation The occurrence patterns and catastrophic mechanisms of pests and diseases make pest and disease prevention and control “reasonable” and “evidence-based”; innovative research and development of core monitoring technologies, sustainable prevention and control technologies and products for cotton pests and diseases make the occurrence of pests and diseases “knowable”, making prevention and control more precise and Sustainable; create a full-process green prevention and control technology system with intelligent monitoring and precise prevention and control as the core. In particular, the green prevention and control model of cotton pests and diseases is fully integrated into the full-process mechanization, making pest prevention and control “greener” and cotton production “easier”, thus Ensure the safety and green production of cotton planting in Xinjiang and promote the high-quality development of the cotton industry.
The project will be funded by the National Key Laboratory of Plant Diseases and Pest Biology, The National Key Laboratory of Cotton Biology, the Key Laboratory of Comprehensive Crop Pest Management of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, the National Cotton Engineering Technology Research Center and the National Agricultural Technology Integrated Innovation Center serve as supporting platforms, integrating the Western Agricultural Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, the National Agricultural Technology The Extension Service Center, China Agricultural University, Xinjiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences Plant Protection Institute and many other industry-university-research units inside and outside the region collaborated to complete the project.
