Underneath the scorching sunshine in Guaili village, Taibai county, Baoji city, Shaanxi province, the diligent villagers are deeply engrossed in the tasks of plowing the fields, planting seedlings, watering and fertilizing, actively participating in the cultivation of vegetables.

Among these dedicated farmers is Zhang Aifang, a 40-year-old woman, who proudly showcased the organic cultivation methods used in the village.

"Our vegetables thrive on organic fertilizers, free from pesticide contamination, resulting in a variety of crisp, sweet, and tasty produce that pleases the palate," said Zhang.

Hailing from Taibai county, Zhang has 3 to 4 mu (0.20 to 0.27 hectares) of land in the Guaili village. Intrigued by the opportunity presented by Taibai County Green Bud Agricultural Development Co., Ltd. to establish a vegetable production base in the village, she seized the chance to become a vegetable farmer.

Reflecting on her journey, Zhang said that all participants, regardless of agricultural experience, must receive comprehensive training before officially starting work.

She said: "Our operations are meticulously structured, starting with seedling cultivation, nurturing, transplanting, field management, daily care and culminating in the harvest. It's imperative to grasp systematic knowledge to ensure the superior quality of our produce."
