Tibet prepares for 2020 spring ploughing
update:February 18,2020
Feb.18, 2020 -- Tibet Autonomous Region has set a goal of producing more than one million tons of crops this year, including more than 800,000 tons of highland barley and over 1 million tons of vegetables. To achieve the goals, the Department of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in Tibet has started the work to prepare for the 2020 spring ploughing which starts in March.
Tibet has already begun to purchase and deliver the needed seeds, fertilizers and pesticides used for ploughing since last October. The Academy of Agricultural Sciences in the region has processed more than 650,000 kilograms of highland barley seeds. The regional reserve can satisfy the needs of spring ploughing.
Lin Mu, a member of the Party Leadership of the Department of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in Tibet, said “The range of agricultural subsidies has been enlarged to cover 84 kinds of farming machines in Tibet, which encourages farmers to purchase machines. Farming machines across the region have been undergoing a complete overhaul to brace for the spring ploughing.”
