The agro-technical station of Huiyuan town in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region gave out free pesticide to 1,000 households on April 29.

The free pesticide was distributed to help farmers prevent plant diseases and control insect pests when growing winter wheat.

Huiyuan town planted 1,533 hectares of winter wheat in 2015. Wheat farming is going through a critical period at the moment as farmers battle to prevent plant disease and control insect pests. As a result, Huocheng county's agricultural bureau made the decision to hand out 1.1 tons of pesticide to its farmers.

Huiyuan is located to the southeast of Huocheng county and has a suitable climate in which winter wheat can grow. The town has built a 67-hectare high-yield wheat demonstration base.

According to the technical station, the pest prevention efforts can help locals increase their grain yields and income.
