As autumn begins, to ensure a good harvest, vegetable growers are busy transplanting and harvesting vegetables at Ganzhuping Village with an elevation of over 1800m of Zhuangmuying Township in Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, central Chian’s Hubei Province. The pollution-free vegetable planting is taken as a pillar industry to implement "precision" poverty relief in the autonomous prefecture. There is about a million mu (about 4047 sq km) of farmland in the area. Infrastructure constructions such as transportation and communication systems are improved so as to the vegetable sell to the whole country.
