Technical suggestions on strip compound planting of soybean and Maize in Southwest China in 2022
By: Date: 2022-03-26 Categories: foodtechnology Tags: ,

Southwest China is the production area with the most concentrated belt planting of soybean and Maize in China. The annual promotion area accounts for about 1/3 of the country, and it is about to enter the soybean sowing period. In order to improve the standardized, efficient and standardized application level of compound planting technology, and adhere to the technical route of”selecting improved varieties, cultivating strong seedlings, reasonable proportion, appropriate dense planting, reducing height, controlling prosperity and harvesting in an appropriate period”, the technical opinions on strip compound planting of soybean and Maize in Southwest China in 2022 were formulated.
