  The local villagers are encouraged to plant medical herbs this year, in line with the mountainous terrain there. The 11 administrative villages of the township have more than 800 mu (about 5.33 ha.) of paris polyphylla, bletilla, yellow ginger, gastrodia elata, and polygonatum odoratum. Herb production helps increase villagers’ income for about 5 million yuan. (Photo/Zheng Guohua, Zheng Yuanjiang)
