More than 1.7 million acres of cotton in Shawan City have entered the cultivation and moisture conservation period
As the temperature rises, cotton seedlings have emerged from the ground in more than 1.7 million acres of cotton fields in Shawan City. They are growing vigorously and have now entered the period of intensive cultivation and moisture conservation.
Walking into the high-quality cotton green and efficient production technology integrated demonstration base in Shaofangzhuangzi Village, Daquan Township, Shawan City, members of the Shuangquan Agricultural Professional Cooperative in Shawan City are adjusting and transforming newly customized cultivating machinery and equipment to prepare for the next Prepare for cotton field management.
He Hongtao, chairman of the Shuangquan Agricultural Professional Cooperative in Shawan City, said: “Now is the critical period for cotton seedling management. The root system of cotton seedlings is relatively shallow. We have taken measures such as cultivating and sealing the soil to break the hardening of cotton fields and increase the ground temperature. , regulate soil moisture, promote cotton root development, and improve the growth environment of cotton seedlings, thereby achieving the purpose of preserving seedlings, preventing disease seedlings, and cultivating strong seedlings.”
