The photo above, taken on November 15, shows a busy harvesting scene in Xitang Town, Yueyang Economic and Technological Development Zone. Ren Shuwu, person in charge of the Youganghe Rice and Vegetable Cooperative, led the members to harvest late rice in fine weather, to ensure that grain can be delivered to the warehouse in time.

Shuwu, 53 years old, was once honored a major specially-supported grain grower in Hunan Province. In 2011, he took the lead in establishing the Youganghe Rice and Vegetable Cooperative, and implementing the model of ¡°cooperative plus land plus farmer households¡±. He led more than 1,680 farmers to invest, and contracted more than 4,800 mu (320 ha.) of farmland in 9 surrounding villages.
