80,000 acres of cotton sowing started in an orderly manner in Zepu County
As the weather gets warmer and the temperature rises, in the past few days, cotton farmers in various towns and villages in Zepu County have been seizing the farming season, not missing farm work, and sowing moisture to lay a solid foundation for this year’s bumper harvest. At present, cotton sowing work on 80,000 acres in the county has been fully launched.
On April 5, accompanied by the rumbling sound of the machine, a precision seeder equipped with the Beidou navigation automatic driving system was sowing seeds in the cotton field of Yukurikarayulegun Village, Gulebag Township. Cotton, as the seeder passes by, is sown, laid with drip irrigation tape, covered with film, and drilled in one go. Grower Yue Taozheng and his workers followed the seeder to carefully check the quality of film laying and sowing.
“In the past few years, small machinery was used for planting. The sowing time was long, the efficiency was low, and it was particularly time-consuming and laborious. In the past two years, I have used an unmanned precision seeder to sow, and 100 acres of land can be sown in 2 days. . At the same time, I have also used technologies such as drone plant protection and mechanized cotton picking. The scientific and technological content has become higher and higher, the costs have been reduced, and the efficiency has been greatly improved.” Yue Tao, a farmer, said.
In recent years, Zepu County has vigorously promoted the development model of “high-standard farmland + mechanized sowing + farmers”, closely focusing on the policy of “optimal structure, refined cotton, promoting industry, and increasing efficiency”, using mechanized precision sowing and Under-film drip irrigation technology. At the same time, technical personnel are dispatched to the fields to provide on-site guidance on sowing, improve the quality of cotton sowing, and ensure the smooth progress of cotton sowing work.
“This year our township has an area of 20,000 acres of cotton planting. The mechanization rate of farming in the township has reached 100%, liberating a large number of labor forces and ensuring the quality of cotton sowing. With the continuous improvement of high-quality cotton varieties and planting technology, the quality of cotton has increased. The planting efficiency is getting better and better,” said Adilijiang Maihemuti, member of the Gulebage Township Party Committee, Chairman of the National People’s Congress, and Director of the Agricultural Office.
This year’s “Government Work Report” of the National Two Sessions proposed to promote agricultural modernization and rural modernization in an integrated manner. Strengthen the protection of cultivated land and strengthen the construction of farmland water conservancy and high-standard farmland and other infrastructure. With the continuous advancement of high-standard farmland construction, Zepu County has organized previously scattered land into large fields through land transfer, land consolidation and other methods, which not only facilitates the implementation of large-area mechanized operations, but also effectively reduces the cost of agricultural production materials, further improving improve crop production levels and planting returns.
