Growing crops are also increasingly rich, not only cucumber, tomato, beans and other varieties, strawberry, pitaya, grapes, peach and other crops are also growing. Throughout the year, farmers can feel the joy of harvest.

In addition to continuing to promote the development of the greenhouse, Songyuan also encourages and guides the farmers to adjust the planting structure in the light of local conditions, and promote the pace of the planting base and scale. We should actively encourage all kinds of management subjects in rural areas to introduce new technologies and varieties of new technology, develop local special crop planting and expand the planting of special agricultural products such as hybrid grain, grain, millet, wine sorghum, potato, sunflower, red pepper, red bean and black bean.

While the planting area of green agricultural products has been increasing continuously, efforts to promote brand building are in full swing. At present, Songyuan has developed 2 regional public brands of "Songyuan Millet" and "Fuyu Silihong Peanuts". There are 5 well-known trademarks in China, 8 national geographical indications trademarks, and 8 national geographic indications protection products. We won 140 gold prize products from the previous agricultural fair, the agricultural fair and the Green Expo. In Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Shanghai and other places, some enterprises have set up about 20 special stores and selling stores, and their products are sold to more than ten countries and regions in Germany, Holland, Beijing and Shanghai.

As brands become increasingly loud, these farmers' carefully planted green crops are bringing greater benefits to them.

 At the good time in the spring, man makes gold diligently. In 2018, Songyuan, which was slowly opened by the spring ploughing curtain, is firmly on the road to create a famous green agricultural city in China. (Zhang Hongyu, Wang Xinxin)
