For Central China's Henan province, how to build itself into a strong province in modern agriculture? Expanding and strengthening the efficient planting and breeding industry is one of the effective ways to achieve this goal.
According to The Outline of the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025) for National Economic and Social Development and Vision 2035 of Henan Province, during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, Henan will promote the regionalization of planting and breeding industry, standardization of production, large-scale operation, industrialization of development, green mode and product branding, accelerate the building of ten advanced production bases of special agricultural products such as high-quality special wheat, peanuts, grass and livestock, woods and fruits, vegetables, flowers and trees, tea, edible fungi, traditional Chinese medicine and aquatic products, and promote the building of high-quality grassland belt in the Yellow River bottomland area, and strive to establish advantageous areas of special agricultural products. Besides, Henan will fully develop the pig industry, expand the cattle and sheep industry, and improve the poultry industry. The output value of animal husbandry will account for more than 35% of the total agricultural output value. It is worth noting that Henan will also accelerate the development of circular agriculture with an organic combination of planting and breeding, and promote the building of green pilot areas for agricultural development.
