Chen Liangdong, who is 61, is a major producer of hybrid rice seeds in Cengong county, Guizhou province. He worked as a construction worker in the county for many years, but returned to his village in 2012 to take over the idle land of the villagers to produce hybrid rice seeds. From spring to autumn, he is busy with tilling, sowing, mulching, transplanting, fertilizing, pollinating, and other tasks.

As autumn arrives, the rice fields have turned golden, and Chen has invited a professional harvesting team from Henan province to harvest the hybrid rice seeds on his farm. Every year, he provides jobs for more than 100 households in the surrounding villages.
