Local firm lifts tomato output with new method

Jun 19, 2017

Fengxian Urban Construction Group Commerce Co Ltd has found a way to grow organic vegetables. Its tomato output is expected to reach a record 90,000 kilos per hectare this summer.

Organic vegetables are produced without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. The new cultivation method guarantees adequate moisture around the roots of tomato plants while the surface soil is dry. This can save a lot of cost.

The method was successfully tested last year with a yield of 75,000 kilos of tomato per hectare. This year, the company expects to raise the output to 90,000 kilos.  

This new method can benefit farmers in the arid region of northwest China, where rain is scarce, said the company general manager surnamed Zhang.
