About 3 pounds of vegetables per person per day.
From a regional perspective, the "Southern Vegetables to the North" and the main vegetable producing provinces in the north are the main forces to ensure the supply of winter and spring markets.
The vegetable area in these areas is 57 million mu, an increase of nearly 2 million mu year-on-year, and has gradually entered the peak season of vegetable harvesting, which can effectively ensure market supply.
