At the farm machine station, farm implement factory and forest management station of the county, he referred to the need to drastically increase the proportion of work done by machines in agricultural production by actively developing and introducing farm machines and implements to meet geographical characteristics, take thoroughgoing measures to supply farming equipment and materials badly needed for farms and direct efforts to putting sapling production on a scientific and intensive basis as demanded by the Party’s policy.
He pointed to the need for officials of agricultural guidance organs at all levels to throw themselves into the implementation of the Party’s rural policy, fully aware of the mission and responsibility they assume in attaining the long-term goal of agricultural development by doing good farming this year, and for deputies to power organs to throw themselves into solving problems related to agricultural production.
