Lotus planting has multiple benefits. In recent years, the village has regarded lotus planting as a new measure to adjust agricultural production and product structures. At present, the plantation area has reached nearly 9,000 mu (600 ha.). This not only increases farmers’ income, but also drives rural tourism development.
