China News Service, Jinan, February 28 (Reporter Sha Jianlong) "We continue to monitor and formulate response plans for wheat with different sowing and growing conditions based on the weather and seedling conditions to ensure a bumper wheat harvest." As the temperature gradually increases, The wheat is about to enter the critical period of turning green, jointing and booting. In the wheat fields of Chengxi Village, Lun Town, Yucheng City, Texas, Li Rudong, the head of the town's agricultural technology station, is leading the villagers to check the condition of the wheat seedlings.

  Liu Xingping is a major grain grower in Yucheng City, planting more than 200 acres of wheat in total.

As the window period for wheat to turn green approaches, he feels "increasingly nervous."

He said that agricultural technology experts in the town have been observing the growth of wheat every day recently. For wheat seedlings with poor growing conditions, they guide villagers to intervene immediately through early management, top dressing, watering, and scientific suppression. "There are professional With guidance, we feel more at ease.”

  "Although the snowfall has brought about cooling, it has also effectively improved soil moisture. Wheat fields that have not been deeply cultivated and have loose soil should be hoeed, and vigorous wheat fields should be suppressed once or twice during the greening and jointing stages. Weak seedlings should be treated And wheat fields with insufficient seedlings should be properly fertilized with moisture, and appropriate amounts of watering and antifreeze should be sprayed to prevent the wheat fields from freezing." In Gudui Village, Beisu Town, Zoucheng City, the city's Agricultural Technology Extension Center Farmers Sun Minghai, Minister of Technology, analyzed.

  In addition to spring wheat field management, now is also a critical period for stable production of facility agriculture.

Wang Futong, director of the Vegetable Department of the Zoucheng Agricultural Technology Extension Center, said that many local villagers encountered spring field management problems due to the continuous cold wave rain and snow weather in the early period.

Regarding the management and protection of greenhouse planting against freezing damage, "we must first do a good job in cold protection and insulation to prevent low temperatures from affecting the growth of vegetables. At the same time, we must strengthen the greenhouse and clear the snow on the greenhouse in time to prevent the snow from being too thick and crushing the greenhouse. ."

  "For example, if the temperature in the shed is too low after snowfall, you can consider artificial warming, such as choosing electric wires, hot air stoves, etc., to illuminate and heat the shed to ensure stable growth of crops." A farmer at Linshu County Agricultural Technology Station Technician Wu Shubao believes that the recent cooling, snow and freezing rain weather has brought greater risks to agricultural production, especially facility agricultural production.

The county organized more than 80 agricultural technicians to go deep into the front line of agricultural production to guide the people to prevent wind, cold, snow, remove snow, and maintain heat and production.

  Hu Tao, director of the Linshu County Agricultural Technology Station, told reporters that according to the agricultural situation dispatch, the county’s wheat planting area exceeds 580,000 acres. Currently, more than 50 seedling situation surveys have been completed in 9 towns and streets, among which the proportion of seedlings in the third category and below reaches 25%, indicating greater management pressure in spring.

"The county will focus on spring field management and spring plowing and sowing preparations, and actively carry out concentrated training activities for spring farmers to promote the transformation and upgrading of wheat seedlings and provide technical support."

  "In preparation for spring plowing, all production units in the tractor factory have entered full-load production. On average, a tractor will come off the assembly line every 3 to 5 minutes, and the daily production capacity has exceeded 400 units." Weichai Lovol Intelligent Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. ("Weichai Lovol" for short) is one of the few domestic brand companies that can provide full-process mechanization solutions for modern agriculture. It currently focuses on the two strategic businesses of intelligent agricultural machinery and smart agriculture.

said Zhang Kangfei, production manager of the final assembly line of Weichai Lovol Tractor Factory.

  This year, Weichai Lovol launched 2024 new products such as Lovol Ceres series harvesters, Lovol high-horsepower tractors, and agricultural machinery and equipment, leading the comprehensive upgrade of domestic agricultural machinery in terms of "intelligence" and "quality."

In the company's logistics and shipping area, a Tainong machine tool including these new products was loaded onto a transport truck and shipped one after another.

At present, Weichai Lovol ships more than 600 agricultural machinery products of various types from the logistics area to all parts of the country every day, injecting new productivity into spring plowing with more efficient, intelligent and reliable products.

  As spring plowing and production begins, the Shandong Branch of the Agricultural Bank of China seizes the farming season to sow "timely financial rain".

The bank has included loans related to spring agricultural production such as rural industries, agricultural and rural infrastructure, new agricultural business entities, grain, seed industry and major water conservancy projects into the strategic allocation of credit resources, and separately listed county loans, agriculture-related loans and farmer loan plans to improve services for spring farming. Enthusiasm to prepare for farming.
