In recent years, Wuming District of Nanning has taken concrete actions based on the realities of the rural areas, and made every effort to do a good job in the special activity of “Richening People through Industry”. By vigorously developing high-efficiency agricultural industries with characteristics, promoting the transformation and upgrading of rural industries, and improving their quality and efficiency, the district aims to boost the development of agriculture and rural areas, and increase the farmers’ income.
Specifically, the Intelligent Aeroponie Vegetable Garden located in Pingdeng Village of Chengxiang Town with a total investment of 3.3 million yuan is a village-level collective economic project. The garden is home to 10 large-scale pollution-free vegetable and fruit greenhouses featuring intelligence, energy conservation and environmental protection which cover an area of more than 5,000 square meters. 4 kinds of melons and fruits including tomato and cucumber, as well as more than 10 kinds of vegetables such as spinach and cabbage are grown in the garden in line with the seasonal and climate conditions. Since the greenhouses maintain a proper temperature, the fruits and vegetables can get ripe within 25 days to 40 days, and each variety can be grown 4 to 6 times a year. The introduction of the advanced projects has not only increased the villagers’ income by employment creation, but also given the villagers opportunities to learn advanced vegetable cultivation techniques.
