There has never been any malign price pressure, and the planting area has rapidly grown from several hundred mu to several thousand mu.Later, with government support, the cooperative signed long-term supply agreements with two of Chongqing’s largest supermarket chains.Every day, more than 50, 000 jin of lotus root is loaded by truck from Liuying village to the city.Seeing the potential of the lotus industry in Liuying Village, Chen bangqi moved there with his family in 2013.On his first day in the village, he was invited to eat pig rice.
