The consolidation is aimed at establishing a number of standard tobacco fields with well-established infrastructure that can produce stable yields during seasons of drought or excessive rain.

So far, the county has concluded the process of inviting tenders for the project of consolidating farmland in the Xinzhai district of Agang township.

The project, which may now have started, involves farmland attached to the villages Gangde and Nieqia, and will include local general infrastructure improvements to roads and drains.

Overall, Yuan28.06 million will be invested in the consolidation project.
