Learning from the Xinjiang Survey Team of the National Bureau of Statistics: According to the National Bureau of Statistics, Xinjiang’s total cotton output this year is 5.129 million tons, accounting for nearly 90% of the country’s cotton output; Xinjiang’s cotton output has stabilized at more than 5 million tons for four consecutive years, accounting for the country’s The proportion has exceeded 80% for five consecutive years.
Since this year, Xinjiang has been developing high-yield and advantageous cotton areas, withdrawing from unfavorable cotton areas such as those without guaranteed water resources and fruit-cotton intercropping, promoting the concentration of cotton in high-quality cotton-producing counties and cities, and improving the utilization level of production resources. The region’s cotton planting area is 2,506.1 thousand hectares, an increase of 4.2 thousand hectares year-on-year.
According to the field survey results of the Xinjiang Survey Team of the National Bureau of Statistics, Xinjiang continues to promote the improvement of cotton quality. The cotton seeds used in the survey areas in the same ecological cotton planting area are gradually becoming unified, and the uniformity of cotton varieties in the entire region has been effectively improved. Improved, Xinjiang’s cotton yield remained basically stable. The cotton yield per unit area in the region is 2046.4 kilograms per hectare (136.4 kilograms per mu).
In recent years, Xinjiang has been guided by new development concepts and in accordance with the development idea of stable grain and high-quality cotton, continuously optimizing the regional layout and variety structure of cotton, guiding cotton planting to concentrate in advantageous production areas, and constantly improving cotton target prices Policies and cotton production quality supporting mechanisms will be implemented in depth to implement cotton supply-side structural reforms, continuously extend and improve the industrial chain and supply chain, and comprehensively improve the quality and efficiency of the cotton industry. At the same time, we continue to increase the promotion of cotton mechanized harvesting and other technologies, guide the development of large-scale and intensive cotton planting, and new agricultural management entities represented by cooperatives have emerged, driving the transformation of cotton production from decentralized operations by small farmers to moderate-scale operations, Xinjiang The advantage of cotton production capacity has been steadily released.
