Realize mechanization of sweet potato from planting to harvesting Tonglu vigorously promotes the "machine replacement" in the agricultural field

recently, in the sweet potato field of Tonglu Chuncheng sweet potato professional cooperative in Fenshui town, Tonglu County, more than 60 agricultural machinery workers and large sweet potato growers from all counties and cities in Hangzhou focused on the machine operators operating the sweet potato seedling killing machine and harvester, and many people also squatted down, Carefully check the crushing degree of sweet potato vines by the seedling killing machine, whether the sweet potatoes dug out by the harvester are damaged, and the thoroughness of harvest

"first, mechanized seedling killing of sweet potato vines is carried out, and sweet potato vines and leaves are chopped, and then the harvester is used to dig out the sweet potatoes in the field. At the same time, the chopped vines are also buried in the soil to become a green base fertilizer." Chenzhongchun, President of Chuncheng sweet potato professional cooperative, explained the operation process to the visitors. In 2016, he began to plant sweet potatoes in Shengcun village, Fenshui town. At present, there are more than 160 mu of fields. With the help and guidance of Tonglu County Agricultural Machinery Management Station, he successively introduced tractors, rotary cultivators, ridging machines and other machinery and equipment. Zeng Sijian, the head of Guangdong Provincial farmland fertilizer station, said in an interview earlier that he purchased sweet potato graders and sweet potato seedling killers last year, realizing the mechanization of the whole process of sweet potato production

speaking of the benefits of mechanized production, Chen Zhongchun became interested. In the past, he needed to spend more than 200000 yuan on labor costs every year, but now he only needs to spend 120000 yuan, and the efficiency of sweet potato production has been significantly improved. Take harvesting for example. For a sweet potato ridge nearly 0.8 meters wide and about 100 meters long, manual harvesting often takes half a day, while mechanized harvesting takes only a few minutes to complete

"the whole process mechanization of sweet potato is still in the experimental and promotion stage in our city, and Tonglu is in the forefront of Hangzhou in this regard." Gong Liqiang, deputy head of Hangzhou agricultural machinery management station, said that the full mechanization of the sweet potato base can effectively solve the problems of difficult labor and high cost, and is also conducive to the brief introduction of electronic tensile testing machine and fixture, so as to improve the quality and value of sweet potato

sweet potato production has always been purely artificial planting, and a whole set of processes such as land ploughing, ridging, cutting, management, rattan cutting, sweet potato digging are cumbersome and time-consuming. In this regard, according to the characteristics of sweet potato planting, the Agricultural Machinery Department of Tonglu County, through out-door investigation, in-depth research and continuous exploration, looks for machines and tools suitable for the geographical environment of Tonglu and suitable for local farmers, so that farmers can really afford, use, use well and have high benefits. Take 2015 as an example. At the same time, relevant subsidy policies were issued according to the actual situation to actively guide farmers to develop in the direction of large-scale, mechanized and modern sweet potato planting

vigorously promoting the pace of "machine replacement" in the agricultural field has always been the direction of Tonglu agricultural machinery department. At present, on the basis of realizing the whole process mechanization of grain production, Tonglu actively promotes the mechanized and large-scale production of economic crops such as vegetables, fruits, tea, aquaculture, aquatic products, forestry and fruits, so that agricultural machinery can become a "locomotive" to drive the specialization of agricultural production
