The level of comprehensive mechanization of crop cultivation and harvest in Inner Mongolia reached 84%.
Xinhua News Agency, Hohhot, 8 Nov (Reporter Li Yunping) the reporter learned from the Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Department of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous region that up to now, the comprehensive mechanization level of crop farming and harvesting in the region has reached 84%, 17 percentage points higher than the national average.
According to Bao Jie, director of the Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Mechanization Administration Bureau of the Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Department of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous region, since the implementation of the agricultural machinery purchase subsidy policy, the central and autonomous regions have invested a total of 12.47 billion yuan in. We will support farmers and herdsmen and various agricultural and animal husbandry production and management service organizations in the region to purchase 474000 tractors and combine harvesting machines and 832000 sets of supporting machines, so as to promote the great-leap-forward development of mechanization of agriculture and animal husbandry. The comprehensive mechanization rate of ploughing, sowing and harvesting of wheat and rice in the whole region is maintained at more than 98%. The field of mechanization of agriculture and animal husbandry is gradually extended from grain crops to cash crops, from planting to processing industry, and from plain areas to hilly and mountainous areas.
The amount of large-scale high-end machinery in Inner Mongolia is increasing year by year, and the mechanized coverage area is expanding year by year. The total power of agricultural and animal husbandry machinery in the region has reached more than 36.6 million kilowatts, the number of tractors and all kinds of combine harvesters has reached 1.174 million and 39000 respectively, the area of conservation tillage has increased to 20.92 million mu, and the area of subsoiling and land preparation of agricultural machinery has reached 16.14 million mu.
At present, the total number of agricultural machinery cooperatives in Inner Mongolia has reached 2720. The socialized service of agricultural machinery, which is mainly carried out by new operators such as agricultural machinery cooperatives, has been extended from farming and sowing operations to full-process mechanized operations, from single-link services to global trusteeship services. The escrow service area reaches more than 5.2 million mu.
It is understood that by 2020, the total power of agricultural machinery in Inner Mongolia will exceed 40 million kilowatts, the comprehensive mechanization rate of crop cultivation and harvest will reach 85%, the mechanization rate of animal husbandry will reach about 38%, and the production of major crops will basically be mechanized in the whole process.
