Recently, it is learned that Xibian Village of Luobo Town in Wuming District decides to develop citrus planting industry and traditional pig breeding industry after multiple investigations and contacts with leading enterprises, and it also encourages rural entrepreneurial leaders with strength and experience coming to the village to develop large-scale planting and breeding.
It is understood that the rural entrepreneurial leaders have unreservedly guided the poverty-stricken households in terms of seed selection and breeding, water and fertilizer application, fruit picking, preservation and transportation, as well as other aspects. Industrial development instructors stationed at the village also regularly explain planting knowledge to poverty-stricken households, aiming to improve the quality of fruit trees. At present, nearly 1,200 mu of 1,702 mu of arable land in Xibian Village is used for citrus planting, accounting for about 70% in total. In addition, Xibian Village has also built a pig breeding demonstration park with the poverty alleviation funds allocated by local government, cooperated with the cooperatives to raise pigs, increasing 104,000 yuan of village collective economic income per year, and helped 40 poverty-stricken households.
