China News Network Lanzhou, June 25 (Zhang Jing) Twenty or thirty pounds of angelica are filled with a basket, 2 pieces of dried cakes, and 1 can of spring water... Departing before dawn, Han Shengrong walked for more than 2 hours to the market , Happened to catch up with the market. In the 1980s, he rushed between his home and the market every day, and enjoyed it.

  "Angelica sells more than 1 yuan per pound, earning 20 to 30 yuan a day." Han Shengrong lives in Yuangudui Village, Tianjiahe Township, Weiyuan County, Dingxi City, Gansu Province. He lives on farming for generations. For this "stable income", He was very satisfied. The days of "selling medicinal herbs in a basket" took decades.

  Yuangudui Village has an altitude of more than 2400 meters and an average annual rainfall of 508 mm. It belongs to a cold and humid climate. Its location Weiyuan County is known as the "Millennium Medicine Township", especially known as Baishen Codonopsis, Angelica and Astragalus.

  Wang Yulan, a 44-year-old villager, followed her father when she was a child and hiked more than 10 kilometers of mountain roads to visit the villagers. The father and daughter often carry their backs and dig up medicine in the mountains. In those years, Wang Yulan remembered many types of medicinal materials. Through intuitive methods such as seeing, touching, smelling, and tasting, he also observed the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine, including shape, size, color, surface, texture, cross section, smell and other characteristics, becoming a An out-and-out "little Chinese medicine".

  Because of this growing environment, Wang Yulan thinks, "Some common and chronic diseases in rural areas are treated with authentic medicinal materials, and the treatment effect is good." The more prescriptions her father has written, the deeper she knows about Chinese medicinal materials. However, the father of an old Chinese medicine doctor who had worked all her life was a "poor doctor" in her eyes. "At that time, there was no money for prescribing prescriptions, and a Chinese medicine sold for a few cents."

  Later, Wang Yulan, who had reached the age of college entrance examination, still wrote the word "medicine" in the voluntary report column. Through reading, she applied for a job and went to work in the south. In the terminal market with high prices and high profits, Wang Yulan saw the most "Gansu Chinese herbal medicine" "All kinds of quality packaging gift boxes with labels. "The hometown medicine farmers dug out good medicines from the ground, but they couldn't sell them at a good price. Among them, the biggest profit earners were the up-and-down sellers who raised prices one by one."

  Taking advantage of the opportunity to go home, Wang Yulan went to the fields to ask the folks about the harvest of medicinal herbs for seven consecutive years, and made a research and analysis report. She said that the reasons for the failure of drug farmers to obtain high profits are not only second-hand traffickers, but also the medicinal materials themselves have more or less irregular cultivation and management issues. In this place where thousands of years of medicines are grown, ordinary people rely on their traditional thinking patterns to carry out Extensive planting...

  After discovering the problem, Wang Yulan resigned in 2014 to return to her hometown, took out all her savings, and loaned to set up a Chinese herbal medicine production and processing enterprise in the village. She invited experts to set up a "field classroom" to provide free training for farmers. From the soil inspection, she all required standardization Planting, and encourage medicinal farmers to plant seedlings by stubble, integrate the cultivation, storage, purchase and sale of traditional Chinese medicinal materials, especially using the two-dimensional code traceability technology, so that the medicinal materials can be brought to the market with an "identity card".

  At the same time, she also produces, processes, and sells Chinese medicine decoction pieces; develops characteristic TCM health care; researches and develops health tea, health decoction pieces, medicinal diet production, and research and development of codonopsis wine. Directly contact the downstream terminal market, and adopt the operation mode of direct procurement and direct supply, which not only guarantees the quality of medicinal materials, but also strives for the best interests of medicine farmers.

  Nowadays, Wang Yulan's operating enterprises have possessed a number of R&D patents and practical technology patents, developed the "China Famous Trademark" and "Agricultural Geographical Indications" of Weiyuan Baitiao Dangshen's resource advantages, with "planting standardization, storage scale, production standardization, The development of the whole industry chain model of industrialization, international sales, and scientific management.

  In the above-mentioned "field classroom" skill training, Han Shengrong was one of the students. After mastering the standardized planting technology, he gradually tasted the sweetness of the medicinal materials. "I no longer need to go back to the market to scream and drink. Now I have to wait for someone to come to buy at a high price." Next, he will further change the planting ideas and manage the existing more than 10 acres of medicinal materials to make "medicinal wealth". (Finish)
