There are about 1,500 mu (100 hectares) of purple glutinous rice fields in Liangzhai Township with three modern agricultural demonstration zones established. In recent years, Liangzhai Township has been committed to developing purple glutinous rice planting industry through joint efforts from local government, cooperatives, planting bases and farmers, as an important means to help lift impoverished households out of poverty.
