China News Service, August 21. According to the website of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, on August 21, the party group of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs held a meeting to study the work related to resisting the high temperature and drought in the south and winning the autumn grain harvest.

  The meeting pointed out that high temperature and drought have become the biggest threat to the bumper harvest of autumn grain in the south.

At present, the drought is still developing, and high temperature and heat damage and drought have met, causing heavy damage to middle rice and summer corn in some southern regions. The disaster relief situation is severe and the task is urgent.

It is necessary to deal with high temperature and drought and obtain a bumper harvest of autumn grains as the current priority, analyze in-depth the impact of high temperature and heat damage and drought on the growth and development of mid-late rice, corn and other crops, and take targeted disaster relief measures for different regions and crops, and do our best to reduce losses. , and resolutely win the battle to defend the autumn grain harvest.

  The meeting emphasized that it is necessary to implement measures to deal with high temperature and drought, and promote the overall allocation of water sources in areas with irrigation conditions, and guide farmers to implement deep water cooling, small water irrigation, and running water to dissipate heat according to the development of high temperature and drought. For hilly and hilly areas, "Wangtiantian" and other areas lacking water sources, use machinery, motor-driven wells, etc. to lift water and deliver water, expand water sources as much as possible, give full play to the role of professional and social service organizations, and focus on spraying foliar fertilizers, drought-resistant water-retaining agents, etc., Do everything possible to reduce the losses due to disasters; for the heavily disaster-stricken or even non-productive plots, it is necessary to replant and replant late autumn crops in a timely manner.

Pay close attention to the disaster situation of middle rice in relevant areas, and provide detailed technical guidance for field management in the later stage according to the impact of high temperature heat damage on the seed setting rate, implement measures to stabilize and increase production such as "one spray and multiple promotions", and work hard to increase grain weight. The yield affected by high temperature and drought should be recovered as much as possible; the production of late rice should focus on preventing the possible occurrence of consecutive droughts in autumn and autumn, formulate targeted work plans and technical guidelines in advance, and pay attention to disaster prevention and mitigation preparations.

  The meeting called for coordinating and coordinating the forces of all parties and working together to do a good job in drought relief and disaster relief.

Strengthen the schedule of high-temperature drought and disaster relief work, strengthen the supervision and guidance of ministerial leaders and relevant departments and bureaus, continue to play the role of scientific and technological teams, and organize agricultural technicians at all levels in drought-affected provinces in the south to go to cities, counties, villages and groups. Fields, strengthen targeted technical guidance services to ensure that various key measures are effective.

It is necessary to announce the hotline for resisting high temperature and drought to achieve a bumper harvest of autumn grains, so as to help solve the difficult problems reported by production and operation entities in a timely manner.

  The meeting emphasized that for the uncertainty of the next agricultural disaster, it is better to believe in its existence and its importance, make a plan and take the initiative.

In view of the many barriers such as diseases and insect pests, northward typhoon, northeast early frost, and south cold dew wind that are still to be passed in autumn grain production, emergency plans should be made in advance by region and type of disaster, material reserves and work preparations should be made in advance, and major and minor disasters must be prevented. , Watermelon and sesame must be picked up.

It is necessary to increase project construction and policy support, promote the effective connection of water conservancy facilities and farmland construction, realize the matching of irrigation canals, and continuously improve disaster prevention and mitigation capabilities.
