Workers of Xiangyanghu Lotus Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. were processing lotus seeds on July 23.
In recent years, Xiangyanghu Town, relying on its local land resources, has made great efforts to develop the planting of lotus, covering an area of more than 6000 mu.
In order to increase farmers' income, Xiangyanghu Town introduces Hubei Xiangyanghu Lotus Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd., and adopts the business model of "cooperative + company + farmer" to purchase, process and sell, so that the "lotus economy" can lead the local villagers to increase their income and become rich.
The company has signed an agreement with 338 lotus farmers so far. It is expected that it can process 300 tons of lotus seeds every year, with the output value reaching 6 million yuan, and the per capita income increasing by more than 2000 yuan. (Photo by Yuan Can/Xianning Daily)
