Small orchard agriculture cooperation new atmosphere
At present, in Yangling, Shaanxi province, the 530 mu China-Kazakhstan Apple Friendship Garden has neat rows of fruit trees and bright white flowers.
They are not as tall as the traditional fruit trees. We adopt the technology of dwarf and dense planting. The trees are short, easy to manage and more efficient."
Yang Linghui Cheng Fruit industry technology development Co., LTD. Technical director Zhang Xiaochai said.
Thousands of kilometres to the west, rows of apple trees in a government-funded 150-acre agricultural demonstration park in Kazakhstan use the same technique.
"We support a whole range of technologies, including what fertilizer to use, how to ferment organic fertilizer, how much trace elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, how to pick the flowers of fruit trees and how to trim the branches."
Zhang Xiaochai said.
Modern planting technology and mechanized operation make yangling's apple yield per mu higher than Kazakhstan's 1000-2000 jin.
Since 2013, Kazakhstan has organized delegations to study in this orchard many times, and in 2014, it established an Apple demonstration garden in Kazakhstan with the technical support of China.
