The other day, in the training base of edible fungus in Nidang township, Xingyi municipal, Guizhou province at the height of 1,100 meters, row after row fungus were listed in the field, and the triangle plum flowers around the base also bloomed.
Ye Mingjin, who has been engaging in the development and cultivation of edible fungi for more than 20 years, has successively helped several companies and cooperatives planting edible fungi such as mushrooms and Jew’s ear in 13 provinces and autonomous regions in the whole country. In 2017, Ye Mingjin, the master of Yunhe, developed and planted mushrooms and black Jew’s ear in Xingyi, Qinglong and other places in Guizhou Province, and leaded a number of farmers to get rid of poverty and become rich, and therefore won the recognition of the local government and the masses.
"The base now grows about 300000 sticks of Jew’s ear, covering 40 mu. The output of Jew’s ear per mu is 48000 yuan, and the income per mu is 20000 yuan after subtracting all kinds of costs. After joining the cooperatives in the village, not only did they earn money, but also that the villagers tasted the sweetness of planting edible fungi,” Ye Mingjin said happily.
Although the weather is getting hot gradually, Zhou Jinxian, who lived in the Shilin village, picked up the Jew’s ear quckily and carefully, picking up the Jew’s ears growing in a wood within a short time. “Because my mother is not in good health, I can't go out to work. Working 8 hours a day at the base, you can earn 80 yuan. There is an income about twenty thousand yuan in a year. At present, more than 10 poor families in the village are working in the base, making money at home. We are all very grateful to Ye Mingjin.
Led by Yunhe master, in 2018, through organizing poor households to work at edible fungus production base and bacteria rod production enterprises, Xingyi city has increased the income of migrant workers. At the same time, it helped the poor household learning technologies about the whole process of producing edible bacteria, so that they learned a skill that could benefit them the whole life; meanwhile, the ‘1223’ industrial development model implemented for the poor households, that is, one poor household planted 2 mu of black Jew’s ear and rotation for two seasons (from November to April planting black Jew’s ear and leaving the bacteria residue on the ground for fermentation; from May to October, planting a season of vegetables) helped them to achieve annual income of more than 30 thousand yuan, so as to get rid of poverty and become rich.
At present, Ye Mingjin has set up 4 edible fungus bases in Xingyi, similar to the edible fungi base in Nidan town. The planting area of Jew’s ear was more than 120 mu, and in the last year only, they helped more than 200 poor households getting rid of poverty (Yunhe County Government Office).
