In recent years, the village has promoted organic agriculture to increase profit. The rice planters have replaced chemical fertilizers with organic ones such as livestock manure and duckweed.

"Though the yield per mu has dropped a little, we can still earn more with high-quality rice, which sells for 20 yuan per kg," said Jiang Yin, a large grain grower.

More than 20 years on, a small factory set up by the village has developed into a group company with an annual production value of 1 billion yuan, focusing on producing steel components for the construction industry.

While developing the industry, the village has not lost sight of the importance of their rural environment.

In 1993, the village built a chemical plant but shut it down two months after it was put into operation due to heavy pollution.

"Environment is fundamental to our village. I'd rather lose money than see a deteriorating environment," said Chang.
