CCTV News (News Network): General Secretary Xi Jinping stressed that ensuring the stable and secure supply of grain and important agricultural products has always been the top priority in building an agricultural power. At present, all localities and departments are rushing to strengthen spring field management, compacting responsibilities to stabilize the spring sowing area, implementing General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions, and striving to lay a solid foundation for completing the goal of stable grain production and supply throughout the year, and accelerating the construction of an agricultural power.

According to the latest agricultural situation dispatch of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, at present, 5.8% of the country's spring grain has been completed. In Jianning County, Fujian, a major county for national hybrid rice production, the area of early rice planting this year has reached 1,6 mu, which can meet the seed needs of more than 300 million mu of early rice area south of the Yangtze River. At present, 2034,5551 large and medium-sized irrigation areas across the country have begun spring irrigation, focusing on major winter wheat-producing areas such as Henan, Hebei, Anhui and Shandong, with a cumulative irrigation area of 2250.<> million mu. This year's spring plowing is expected to have more than <>.<> million sets of tractors, land preparation tools and other agricultural machinery and equipment put into agricultural production, a slight increase over last year. In Xianji Village, Fuzhou City, Jiangxi Province, thanks to the high-standard farmland construction, the high-horsepower rotary cultivator entered the farmland for the first time this year to carry out mechanized operations.

Farming is the outline of the country. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping has attached great importance to food security, and when he inspected various places, he looked at the protection of cultivated land, the cultivation of improved seeds, the growth of crops, and always paid attention to the improvement of grain production capacity in various places. At the Central Rural Work Conference held at the end of last year, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that it is necessary to consolidate the foundation of food security in an all-round way, not only to grasp the material foundation, strengthen the storage of grain in the land, store grain in technology, but also grasp the mechanism guarantee, so as to improve production capacity, structural optimization, resilience enhancement, income guarantee, and responsibility compaction. During the two sessions this year, when participating in the deliberations of the Jiangsu delegation to the first session of the 14th National People's Congress, the general secretary once again stressed the need to strictly observe the red line of cultivated land, stabilize the sown area of grain, strengthen the construction of high-standard farmland, and earnestly ensure the stable and safe supply of grain and important agricultural products. Bearing in mind the instructions of the general secretary, while all localities are breaking down and issuing the responsibility of sowing area and compacting layer by layer, various safeguard measures are also being implemented. At present, in the critical period of wheat seedling transformation, in Sanhe Town, Huai'an City, Jiangsu Province, 20,000 mu of continuous wheat fields are endless and green, under the guidance of agricultural technicians, farmers have used self-propelled sprayers for field management this year, and the quality and efficiency of operations have been greatly improved compared with traditional spraying methods.

This year, China will ensure that grain output remains above 1.3 trillion jin, implement a new round of 158 billion jin of grain production capacity improvement actions, and a series of measures to stabilize the area and bill of lading yield are being implemented quickly. This year, China will deeply implement the seed industry revitalization action and promote the national breeding joint research. At present, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has selected 164 leading varieties of grain and oil production this year, with 2 main technologies, focusing on grain and oil crops with great potential for increasing soybean and corn production, and carrying out a three-year special action of "pushing technology and bills of lading yield", and asking for output and production capacity from science and technology. This year, China continued to promote the construction of high-standard farmland. By the end of February, about 1369.17 million mu of newly built high-standard farmland had been built nationwide, accounting for 1.<>% of the annual task.
