Ningxia 2009 crop planting advice

Ningxia has a high temperature and low rainfall in spring this year. The possibility of spring drought is very high. It is unfavorable for the growth of winter wheat and the sowing of spring wheat, corn, potatoes and other summer food crops.
According to the forecast of climate trends, the ending date of spring frost in our district is early and the heat conditions are good. Irrigation districts should make full use of calorific resources and expand the area of ​​autumn crops, in particular, expand the planting area of ​​medium- and late-maturing varieties of maize, and increase intercropping rates; According to the actual reduction of the Yellow River water supply in the spring, the rice planting area should be properly ensured, and rice breeding should be appropriately advanced to minimize the planting area of ​​late-maturing varieties of direct-seeded rice. The temperature in winter and spring is expected to be high, and the tidal wave and ebb tide may be early, and the spring tide intensity may be normally small. Spring sowing and spring irrigation in the irrigate area should be appropriately advanced. Because the temperature in winter is obviously high, which is conducive to the wintering of diseases and insect pests, it is necessary to strengthen the prevention and control of pests and diseases. All localities must strengthen the field management of winter wheat. Before returning to spring in spring, fertilizers should be promptly applied and suppressed, and soil water loss in the field should be inhibited. The middle arid zone and the southern mountainous area should appropriately reduce the sown area of ​​summer grain, and expand the planting area of ​​autumn crops such as potato and corn according to the spring rainfall conditions.
