Recently, a cherry growing center of 1,600 mu in Tekes County obtained the qualification for export and become the first orchard in Xinjiang to be able to export cherries.
An agricultural and forestry technology company in Tekes County started planted cherry trees in 2014, adopting the management model of "leading enterprises + cooperatives + orchards + growers" to actively develop the local cherry industry. 1,600 mu of cherries were planted to increase growers’ income while leading the structural adjustment of the industry.
"The orchard has obtained the permit for export and opened up the passage for cherries to go abroad." Li Junmin, the company’s deputy general manager said that the trees are bearing fruit, and when they ripen in the second half of the year, they will try to export them. The service area of Yining Customs has unique natural geographical conditions, and most of the local produce is grown on a large scale. Especially in the past two years, nearly 15,600 mu of export fruit and vegetable growing centers have been added to the established ones, laying a solid foundation for the export of more high-quality agricultural products from Xinjiang.
