Despite being tired of working from dawn until dark, He Xinjia is looking forward to an abundant harvest of rice this year.

The 40-year-old farmer in Ping'an township of Shulan, a county-level city in Jilin province, planted 33.3 hectares of rice this year. But the city suffered heavy rainfall and flooding in early August.

After the flood, local agricultural department carried out a series of restorative measures, including drainage, dredging and crop-dusting to control pests and plant disease.

Moreover, the black soil in Shulan was protected effectively and the yield and quality of rice was improved by means of soil testing and formula fertilization in the paddies.

All the efforts created a picturesque scene on 50,000 hectares of rice paddies in Shulan, including He's.

Shulan has 144,000 hectares of arable land and is known for its high-yield, high-quality rice. It is estimated that the total output of crops in Shulan will reach 1.2 million metric tons this year, including 416,000 tons of rice.
