  The photos, taken on August 13, show villagers work at a ginger plantation in Shetou Village, Taochuan Town, Jiangyong County. The gingers enter the harvest season at present. In recent years, the county has adopted a “cooperative + farmer” mode to standardize ginger cultivation.

  In 2018, the county planted more than 20,000 (about 1,333 ha.) mu of gingers, with a total yield of more than 50,000 tons. The county has established a three-level e-commerce marketing network covering counties, townships, and villages, which helps increase farmers’ income. (Photo/Liu Wangmin, Xinhua News Agency)
