New farmers program

2017-12-12

  New farmers program has been launched from 2017 to 2022, targeting the demand in different stages of farming and assisting new farmers to conquer the barriers from technology, farmland, capital, and marketing so that they could minimize the gap between learning and applying. Transform new farmers into professional farmers or agribusinesses. It is estimated that we will train 3,000 new farmers every year. We selected 318 young farmers from the first through the third classes of Hundred Young Farmers program, and the fourth classes started in September to select 93 young farmers and 12 farmers' teams (58 people). What's more, 16 “service platforms” for local young farmers were established in cities and counties to boost collective collaboration. The Farmers' academy also provided professional training on technical skills and business management to systemize the training of agricultural workforce.
