In March, spring is in full bloom. As the temperature continues to rise, cotton crops in various parts of Xinjiang are welcoming. It’s sowing time. In late March, in the regiment field of the Tarim Reclamation Area of the Second Division of Tiemenguan, Xinjiang, modern agricultural machinery was shuttled across the fields.
It is understood that the 31st Regiment of the Second Division sown 112,000 acres of cotton this year , the spring sowing work is expected to be completed around April 10; the cotton sowing area of the 33rd Regiment is about 120,000 acres, and the spring sowing work is expected to be completed in mid-April; the cotton sowing area of the 34th Regiment is about 130,000 acres, and the spring sowing work is expected to be around April 10 Finish. The main cotton planting farms in Tarim began laying cotton films around March 15 this year, and sowing began around March 25. The spring sowing is expected to be completed in mid-April.
Cotton cultivation mainly uses “winter plowing, winter irrigation, roofing and film laying” Technology and “dry sowing and wet out” technology, under the precise positioning of the Beidou satellite navigation system, the cotton film spreader shuttles back and forth in the field to spread the film. The entire process is mechanized, and the mulch film and drip irrigation tape are laid in one go. The fields are busy and busy. scene. While grasping the progress, ensure that the quality of the film laying is straight, consistent, flat and tight, with square corners and linear edges. technical standard. Drip irrigation under the film provides water. The precision of drip irrigation is high. The soil moisture is suitable for direct sowing. The soil does not need spring irrigation. It not only saves a lot of water resources, but also improves the emergence rate of cotton. Now the emergence rate can reach about 90%, which not only saves water The fee also increased the cotton yield per unit area, laying the foundation for increasing cotton income. It is understood that the local cotton varieties are mostly Xinlu Zao, Xinlu Zhong, Zhongmian, Yan’s varieties, etc.
With the popularity of various types of “smart” agricultural machinery, a series of The application of new agricultural technologies has allowed the cotton yield and quality of cotton planting farms in Tarim to hit new highs repeatedly. In the future, Xinjiang’s cotton industry will continue to move towards higher quality and more efficiency.
