Source:MARA Date:2020-07-29

MARA sent a working group to drought-hit areas in Liaoning for local drought relief work on July 27, 2020.  


The working group will investigate drought conditions and analyze the trends, develop region-specific and crop-specific technical guidance, and come up with solutions to difficulties in fighting drought. The working group will also intensify supervision over relief efforts and support the implementation of relevant measures for drought alleviation in the worst-affected areas to minimize the loss and secure good harvest this year.  


Since June, the drought has been lingering in the western part of Northeast China due to less precipitation, higher temperature and rapid loss of soil moisture, negatively affecting the growth of corn and other crops.
