Vice Chairman He Quan of Jiangsu Provincial People's Political Consultative Conference (JPPPCC) led a delegation of 30 government officials to JAAS on April 46. JAAS President Yan Shaohua, Profs Liu Xianjin and Shi Zhendan (who are also JPPPCC members) accompanied the visit.
During the visit, President Yan introduced the development of modern recycling agriculture technology system in Luhe Animal Sciences Station (JAAS). Profs Liu Xianjin and Shi Zhendan made separate reports on agro produce monitoring and sustainable development in animal raising.
Concerned about the recent outbreak of bird flu in Jiangsu, the Rural and Countryside Leadership Group presented their suggestions on agriculture modernization. First, coordinate with relevant institutes and non-government organizations (NGOs) to provide large-scale technical support to farmers; second, place key emphasis on the control of harmful mycotoxins and pollutants and guard against potential dangers in agriculture production; third, reinforce the monitoring of agro-products safety and carry out researchers on food nutrition accordingly with market demands.
The delegation also had a guided tour to Lishui Plant Sciences Station and Jiangsu Food Safety Monitoring Key Lab of JAAS.
