  In the process of rural revitalization, Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province firmly grasped the key point of industrial revitalization, focused on building a high-quality development platform for modern agricultural industrial parks, building a modern agricultural industrial system, production system, and operating system, and fostering and expanding advantageous industrial clusters and development New industries and new formats such as leisure agriculture and rural tourism promote the integrated development of rural primary, secondary and tertiary industries, and enhance the driving role of rural industries to enrich the people and rejuvenate the village.

  Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province is not only the main city in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, but also a major agricultural city in Guangdong. More than half of the population lives in rural areas.

Facing the uneven development of urban and rural areas, how can Zhaoqing make up for its shortcomings and promote the development of modern agriculture, so as to be a "vegetable basket", "fruit plate" and "rice bag" in the Greater Bay Area?

Recently, a reporter from Economic Daily went to Zhaoqing to investigate and interview.

  Exploring efficient agriculture in the distribution base——

  Open up circulation joints

  In the middle of winter, Lingnan is still full of greenery. The reporter came to Zhaoqing (Huaiji) green agricultural and sideline product distribution base. On the highway, logistics vehicles from the Pearl River Delta continued to enter and leave the base. This is one of the major platforms for high-quality agricultural development created by Zhaoqing.

Not far away, projects such as the cold chain logistics facility system project for the storage and preservation of agricultural products supporting the base have been initially completed.

  According to Zhi Jiasheng, director of the Agriculture and Rural Bureau of Huaiji County, the base mainly serves consumption areas in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and agricultural production areas in surrounding provinces and cities. It adopts a spatial layout model of "one base + multiple nodes" to tap existing agricultural elements. Resource and logistics channel resource advantages, on the one hand, fully integrate Huaiji and the surrounding area's high-quality agriculture and green agricultural and sideline products resources; on the other hand, effectively integrate Huaiji and the surrounding area's logistics infrastructure resources, and establish a production, processing and distribution area for various agricultural and sideline products in the surrounding area The efficient connection of the network and the service function of the distribution base.

  By accelerating the construction of the cold chain logistics backbone network, Zhaoqing is striving to build an agricultural entire industrial chain cluster integrating planting, processing, warehousing, logistics and sales.

In September 2020, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area "Vegetable Basket" product Zhaoqing distribution sub-center project with a total investment of 280 million yuan and a planned area of ​​about 150 acres officially started in Guangning County.

At the same time, Zhaoqing also relies on the 200-square-kilometer Guangfo Zhao (Huaiji) Economic Cooperation Zone platform to intensively carry out the construction of distribution bases. In the 94.4-square-kilometer ecological agriculture demonstration area, it will focus on the development of modern ecological agriculture and tourism such as characteristic agricultural products and famous flowers. For the leisure tourism industry, two provincial-level modern agricultural industrial parks have been created-Huaiji County Simiao Rice Industrial Park and Huaiji County Vegetable Industrial Park.

  The Huaiji County Vegetable Industrial Park is led by Zhaoqing Quanfa Agricultural Development Co., Ltd., which has been rooted in the local area for more than 10 years. It has formed an industrial group with the core of agricultural product planting, processing, cold chain, logistics and distribution. Its sales spread all over South China and directly connected to Hong Kong, Macau and Southeast Asia. And so on.

Huaiji Runfeng Agricultural Development Co., Ltd., which has transferred more than 3,000 acres of arable land, develops specialty vegetable production, drives surrounding farmers to plant high-value-added specialty crops such as leeks, leeks and fruit lotus roots, and radiates the development of the tertiary industry.

  It is understood that Huaiji County Vegetable Industrial Park currently has many planting and processing enterprises, and has established a vegetable planting core area covering an area of ​​more than 7,000 acres in Lengkeng, Maning and other towns, mainly planting vegetables such as cabbage heart and leek flowers.

Among them, 4 vegetable supply bases for Hong Kong cover an area of ​​more than 3,000 acres, and are closely linked to 8 vegetable business entities. The radiation drives more than 12,000 acres of vegetables per year, and more than 13,000 households are linked to farmers and transported from Huaiji to Zhuhai on average. About 50 tons of vegetables in the triangle and other regions, a large-scale and industrialized business model has initially formed.

In 2020, the total agricultural output value of the industrial park can reach 2.738 billion yuan.

  Guangning County is one of the mountainous counties in northern Guangxi, adjacent to Huaiji County. In recent years, a meat pigeon industrial park covering Nanjie, Zhouzi, Binheng, Hengshan and other towns (streets) has been formed.

At present, the breeding farm and living supporting area of ​​the industrial park are basically taking shape. It is estimated that the annual output value can reach 300 million yuan after completion, and it will become the largest meat pigeon production base in Guangdong.

  In June 2020, Zhaoqing Pig Industrial Park and Guangning Meat Pigeon Industrial Park were included in the list of Guangdong Provincial Modern Agricultural Industrial Parks. At present, Zhaoqing has been selected into the list of 10 provincial industrial parks, ranking fifth in the province.

  Fan Zhongjie, secretary of the Zhaoqing Municipal Party Committee, said that the imbalance in the development of urban and rural areas is the biggest imbalance in Zhaoqing's development and is a shortcoming that restricts Zhaoqing's high-quality development.

Based on its own resource endowment, Zhaoqing vigorously implements the "611" project of modern agricultural development, and acts as a "vegetable basket", "fruit plate" and "rice bag" in the Greater Bay Area, and strives to turn the shortcomings of agriculture and rural areas into a "potential board" for high-quality development. .
