Electric power is playing a steadily increasing role in the development of agriculture. Since the beginning of the year, power used for agriculture in Shansi Province, for instance, has increased by more than 100 per cent compared with the same period last year. It is a big weapon in the current anti-drought fight.
Not long ago this column mentioned the big electrically powered pumping station network that is being built in the Pearl River Delta in Kwangtung Province in the south. Last week, reports came in of the building of more such networks.
In Shanghai, one such network has just been completed and commissioned. Capable of watering 225,000 mu of farmland, it serves five neighbouring counties which supply the big industrial city with vegetables.

On the outskirts of Nanking, in Kiang-su  Province, a big new power-operated pumping station last week started pumping over a million cubic metres of water daily from the Yangtse to the Chinhuai River, providing irrigation for 200,000 mu of farmland.
By the end of May this year, Hopei Province in north China had expanded its power-operated irrigation by 19 per cent as compared with last year.
