A couple from a poverty-stricken village in east China's Shandong Province have been involved in vegetable growing for the past few years and have taken the lead to help local villagers out of poverty.


Gao Chun, 38, is a local from Changsheng Village in Muli Township of Shandong. He has been engaged in the soilless nursery industry away from his hometown for years.


Changsheng Village is located in the Yellow River beach area, where getting around is inconvenient and the land is barren.


In October 2017, with the support of local industrial revitalization policies, Gao decided to return home with his wife, Shen Xinling to lead villagers to achieve joint prosperity.


Relying on the advantages of the local agricultural features, the couple established the Luxin Vegetable Breeding Cooperative, investing 4.5 million yuan, transferring eight hectares of land and building 10 modern nursery greenhouses.


The cooperative applies modern agricultural technology such as automatic sowing and spraying, thereby producing a total of 12 million seedlings and achieving an output value of well over 7 million yuan each year.
