Every second counts against the harvest of ripe wheat and the speed of machine harvesting have been increased. The area of machine harvested has exceeded 10 million mu for 13 consecutive days, and the progress is faster than last year and normal years; the loss rate of machine harvest has been reduced, and the loss rate of wheat machine harvest has been basically controlled within 2%. Harvest at the right time and return the grains to the warehouse… Agricultural machinery with new technology, strong equipment, and continuous optimization and upgrading has become a good helper for farmers, escorting stable production and increase of grain income.
Looking at fertile fields, technological farming increases efficiency. The high-quality and high-yield summer grains, high-quality wheat varieties accounted for 38.5%, an increase of 1.2 percentage points; the summer-harvested rapeseed achieved “three increases”, with an area of more than 100 million mu, a record high per unit yield, and the largest increase in output in 6 years… …Facts have proved that scientific and technological innovation has become an important driving force for increasing grain production and income, as well as agricultural and rural economic growth. At present, the comprehensive mechanization rate of crop cultivation and harvesting in my country exceeds 72%, and the contribution rate of agricultural scientific and technological progress exceeds 61%. “Store grain through technology” has accelerated to become a reality. Advances in agricultural science and technology have led to a substantial increase in agricultural production levels, providing important support for successive bumper grain harvests, and giving confidence in stabilizing prices and expectations and increasing confidence.
General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: “The key to agricultural modernization lies in scientific and technological progress and innovation.” Competitiveness. The data shows that with the continuous emergence of a large number of excellent varieties such as water-saving and drought-resistant wheat and machine-harvested corn, the contribution rate of improved varieties to my country’s grain production increase exceeds 45%. 76%, of agricultural waste has become a “baby” for recycling; in the first half of this year, 73.77 million mu of high-standard farmland was built and started construction, accounting for 74% of the annual 100 million mu task, water-saving irrigation, water, and fertilizer integration, etc. New technologies take root in the wild. Injecting more scientific and technological content into agricultural production will make up for the shortcomings of agricultural development and increase the stamina of agricultural development towards high-quality and efficient development. Advances in science and technology create new advantages in agricultural development, making modern agriculture more competitive, and laying a solid foundation for long-term and stable economic development.
Innovation drives development and technology empowers the industry. Giving full play to the leading role of scientific and technological progress in agricultural development will effectively expand the various functions of agriculture, and promote the growth of new kinetic energy and industrial upgrading. Data show that in the first half of the year, the added value of the national agricultural and sideline food processing industry increased by 3.3% year-on-year. In June, the purchasing managers index (PMI) of key national leading enterprises in agricultural industrialization was 52%, 1.8 percentage points higher than that of the manufacturing industry. It can be seen that technological empowerment is promoting the diversified development, multi-level utilization and multi-link value-added of agricultural products. Promoting the integrated development of the primary, secondary and tertiary industries in rural areas will help to further leverage the latecomer advantages of the vast rural areas. To allow the majority of farmers to truly take on the “golden pole”, agricultural science and technology must continue to make efforts to help extend the agricultural industry chain, enhance the value chain, open up the supply chain, and improve the interest chain, thereby effectively promoting the adjustment of the agricultural industry structure and increasing farmers’ income. Promote the high-quality development of rural industries and inject a steady stream of new kinetic energy.
In the first half of this year, my country’s agricultural and rural economy maintained a good momentum of development. In the second half of the year, agricultural products are expected to continue to maintain sufficient quantities and stable prices. We must insist on seeking benefits from science and technology, so as to ensure a bumper harvest of grain and increase farmers’ income. Only by further promoting the deep integration of science and technology and agricultural production, and accelerating the transformation of agricultural development from relying on resource factor input to innovation-driven development, can we give full play to the irreplaceable supporting role of my country’s agriculture, rural areas, and farmers in economic and social development, and win the initiative to deal with various risks and challenges.
Agriculture is a basic industry, and China’s modernization is inseparable from agricultural modernization. If agriculture is to be revitalized, it must be equipped with the wings of science and technology. Actively promote the structural reform of the agricultural supply side, insist on adjusting and improving the agricultural production structure and product structure guided by market demand, and take the road of connotative modern agricultural development with the support of science and technology. Realize the transformation from a largely agricultural country to a strong agricultural country
