Mechanization boosts agricultural production in Fengxian
    Specialized agricultural co-opts in Fengxian are using machines to boost productivity.
    In 2016, a batch of demonstration zones for vegetable planting mechanization were established in the district. Vegetable production machines purchased with governmental subsidies were first applied in these zones.
    Currently mechanization has reached 70 percent in the demonstration zones in sectors such like soil cleaning and while plowing in the greenhouse, the machines can save 80 percent of human labor and prove to be six times better in efficiency. 
    They can also take human's place in planting, watering, fertilizing, drug spraying and picking, thus overcoming the influence from bad weather conditions. 
    The district plans to expand the practice to more lands and cooperate with enterprises to set up agricultural machinery teams to better manage machines and promote efficiency in farming.
