The fresh ginger harvest season takes place every year in November. What the farmers worry about most is not the price, but lack of manpower for harvest. There are several reasons for this situation:

1. Excessive production capacity, insufficient demand
We generally only eat from a small part of the fresh vegetable market. The majority of vegetables ends up in processing factories. People do not really understand the influence of fresh ginger on the market. This is a product with medicinal value. In recent years, the number of production areas has increased, every other village has its own fresh ginger farms. Purchasing traders have become more selective, and this situation is difficult to change.

2. Increasingly strict standards in the purchase market
Washing fresh ginger becomes increasingly difficult under new environmental protection regulations. Small companies in particular are unable to compete with larger companies when the cost of environmental protection becomes too high.
