China News Service, June 2. Wang Jiayun, deputy director of the Agricultural Mechanization Management Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, introduced today that starting from May 29, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has successively dispatched 9 working groups to relevant provinces to carry out special wheat harvesting. Guidance, go deep into the fields to coordinate and solve difficult problems, and ensure that the wheat harvests in various places are not affected by the epidemic, and neither a piece of land nor a single household of wheat is missed, so as to realize the harvest of all receivables and the return of grains to the warehouse.

  The State Council's Joint Prevention and Control Unit held a press conference today to introduce the overall situation of epidemic prevention and control and production in key industries.

At the meeting, a reporter asked: Now is the critical period for wheat machine harvesting. Many farmer friends and agricultural machinery operators are concerned about whether agricultural machinery will be affected by the epidemic when it is on the road and off the field and cross-regional operations.

What specific measures does the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs take to deal with this?

How to ensure the smooth development of summer grain harvesting?

  Wang Jiayun responded that the current situation of epidemic prevention and control is still severe and complicated, which will have a certain impact on agricultural machinery transshipment operations during the "Three Summers" period.

In order to ensure the smooth progress of the summer grain harvest, this year, the joint main wheat producing areas have taken extraordinary measures to consolidate responsibilities, clear up blockages, improve plans, strengthen services, and do a good job in machine harvesting of wheat.

Specifically summarized as "three guarantees":

  One is to ensure the smooth transshipment of agricultural machinery across regions.

Instruct provinces to get through the blocking points that affect the return of agricultural machinery, cross-regional transfer of agricultural machinery, and transportation of agricultural machinery parts in a timely manner, so as to ensure the smooth flow of wheat harvesters and machinery, and the efficient and orderly transportation and distribution of agricultural machinery parts.

Urge all localities to include agricultural machinery and spare parts in the scope of key material transportation guarantees, open agricultural machinery “green channels” to ensure priority inspection and release of operating machinery; Ensure that cross-regional agricultural machinery operators with a negative nucleic acid test certificate within 48 hours, a green health code, and a normal body temperature can operate normally, and the machine receiving service vehicles carrying spare parts are treated equally.

For agricultural machinery operators and agricultural machinery vehicles and accessories carrier drivers whose nucleic acid test results exceed 48 hours, the nucleic acid antigen detection "pick-and-go" management will be implemented to ensure that the wheat harvesting operation does not stop.

  The second is to ensure that agricultural machinery enters the village smoothly.

Counties with wheat harvesting tasks should set up reception service stations for cross-regional operations and centralized docking points for cross-regional operation equipment to provide necessary conditions for epidemic prevention, living, fueling, and maintenance.

Drive out mobile nucleic acid testing vehicles to "deliver inspection to the field", and organize agricultural machinery production and sales enterprises to follow the machine to carry out spare parts maintenance mobile services to ensure that there are parts that can be replaced.

The provinces, cities and counties in the main wheat harvesting areas announced the hotline for accepting the problem of machine harvesting of wheat, and implemented a 24-hour special shift to solve the difficulties and problems encountered in the machine harvesting operation as soon as possible.

  The third is to ensure that the harvest in the epidemic area is assured.

The main wheat producing areas have set up emergency collection teams covering every township. If an epidemic occurs or extreme weather occurs, emergency collection operations will be carried out.

In the epidemic control area, the effective practice of "people staying at home, closed-loop management of mobile operators, and grass-roots cadres participating in the collection and management" of local exploration will be promoted. "One household, one mark" will be transported to the home, so that farmers who are sealed off from other places and cannot return to their hometowns, and who are sealed off and cannot go to the fields at home, don't have to worry about no wheat being harvested.

  Wang Jiayun said that in order to urge localities to effectively implement relevant measures, starting from May 29, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has successively sent 9 working groups to relevant provinces to carry out special guidance on wheat machine harvesting, and go deep into the fields to coordinate and solve difficult problems. To ensure that the wheat harvests in various places are not affected by the epidemic, and no piece of land or one household of wheat is missed, so that all the receivables are collected and the grains are returned to the warehouse.
