Recently, Hengxian County of Nanning City held an activity themed on “Promoting Agriculture and Realizing Poverty Alleviation through Flower and Tree Planting and Water Conservancy Projects”, on which related officials, technicians and farmers braved the rain to plant jasmine seedlings. This activity encouraged and guided enterprises and other social forces to participate in the donation of jasmine seedlings, and distributed them to villages and households in need free of charge. As was reported, 41 enterprises in the county have donated about 1.3 million jasmine seedlings, and 319 poverty-stricken households have planted over 256 mu of jasmine.
At present, Hengxian County has taken jasmine industry as a pillar industry in poverty alleviation, and issued a series of support policies such as the “Interim Measures on Awards for Promoting Jasmine Industry in Hengxian County”. It plans to set aside 10 million yuan per year to support the industry and encourage farmers to grow jasmine.
