These new professional practitioners have created new opportunities for the development and reform of various industries through continuous learning and exploration.

  "Unlike traditional farmers, agricultural managers pay attention to technology in farming." In order to become a professional agricultural manager, Wu Siyu, who graduated from high school, taught himself biology, agriculture and management knowledge. After introducing advanced planting technology, she also helped the farm develop a small sales program with her e-commerce sales experience, realizing "brand your own brand and sell your own products". Under Wu Siyu's careful management, the annual sales income of the family farm has reached 3 million yuan.
