During the harvest season, Xinjiang fruits with distinctive marks in the Tarim Basin are continuously transported to all parts of the country; Apricot kernel oil essence, jujube essence, jujube capsule, sea buckthorn capsule and other forest fruit intensive processing products also frequently appeared in the market. The forest and fruit area in Xinjiang has reached 16 million mu, and the output is expected to reach 5.3 million tons this year. Efforts to benefit the people have been further strengthened.
"In the past, although Xinjiang's fruits were famous, they were few in quantity, mixed in variety and scattered in planting. Today, we not only have scale, but also implement standardized production, with hundreds of fruit storage and fresh-keeping processing enterprises. The development of characteristic forest fruit industry is changing from expanding the planting scale to improving the quality and efficiency, from mainly producing primary fruits to modern forest fruit industry mainly producing high-end fruits and deeply processed products." Zhang Xiaoping, Secretary of the Party Committee of the Forestry Department of the Autonomous Region, summarized this.
In Xinjiang, with the optimization of variety structure and the formation of characteristic forest and fruit industry belt, improving the quality of forest and fruit products has become a trend among fruit farmers.
A half meter wide and half meter deep ditch was dug between the ridges of the jujube garden in the old man's jujube garden of Maimaidi Amuli, Xinhe County, and farmyard manure and organic fertilizer were applied. The old man said happily, "Under the guidance of experts, 3 cubic meters of farmyard manure and 80 kilograms of organic fertilizer are put in each mu of land. This can ensure that 500 kilograms of semi dry dates are produced per mu of land. The dates are sweet and sell well!"
Duan Fengbin's family in Aksu Hongqipo Farm has 14 mu of apple orchard, which has been grafted into Red Fuji. After the transformation of the tree shape, he also took measures to improve the income of the orchard, such as bagging apples, painting reflective films during the maturity period, and grading picking and selling. The apples were ordered out before they left the orchard. Wang Huai of Hongqipo Farm has become a good seller of 20 mu of grapes in his family. He has invested 240000 yuan to build two cold storages. Not only can a dozen tons of grapes in his family's field sell 170000 yuan in winter, but he also rents the cold storages to nearby farmers to store fruits.
In Xinjiang, the development of forest and fruit industry has extended the processing chain of enterprises, developed deep processing products, and improved the added value of forest and fruit products.
Luntai County is a traditional town of small white apricots. There are 6 apricot processing enterprises, whose products have been upgraded from the original preserved apricots and almond oil to the current apricot jam, almond essential oil, protein powder, activated carbon and dietary fiber.
Yanqi County Township Wine Industry planted 24000 mu of wine grapes. In the planting process, the company adopts the organic food production mode of raising geese to eat grass and fertilizing goose manure. In addition to limiting the yield of grapes, grape seed oil and anti-aging capsules were also developed from grape skins, seeds and wine dregs that were originally used as feed. At present, Xiangdu Wine has occupied 75% of the high-end red wine market in Xinjiang, and its products have begun to enter Beijing, Shanghai and other big cities.
I wish your company had bought dates in Xinjiang since 1991. Now, the purchase quantity has grown from more than 100 tons to 6000 tons, and the purchase price has risen from 3 yuan/kg to 3.5 yuan/kg in 1991 to more than 10 yuan to 20 yuan/kg. The company has more than 400 products in four categories, namely, jujube slices, dried jujube, jujube powder and jujube drinks, from the original graded and roughly packaged products. The products of secondary processing and deep processing now account for 80% of your jujube products.
Through the introduction of investors inside and outside the region to participate in the industrial development of Xinjiang's forest fruits, there are 168 fruit storage, fresh-keeping and deep processing enterprises in Xinjiang, with an annual storage, fresh-keeping and processing capacity of 1.81 million tons. There are 11 counties (cities) in the region named by the State Forestry Administration as the "Hometown of Walnuts", "Hometown of Little White Apricots", "Hometown of Grapes" and other famous and special forest fruit villages. 11 forest fruit products, such as "Korla Fragrant Pear" and "Aksu Apple", have been protected by the National Geographic Indication Products. The export-oriented bases have developed rapidly. There are 878 export registered orchards in the district, covering an area of nearly 1 million mu, and a pollution-free, green and organic fruit production base of nearly 2.5 million mu.
