Taken local conditions into consideration, 53 ha of grassland will be planted in the Bakatai Prairie.
Through this activity, a total of 1,130 ha of grassland has been planted in 10 townships in 7 counties in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau region.
After 3 years of growing, the planted grass will be used by eco-pastures of the local breeding cooperative.
This activity aims to provide high-quality grass for local graziery to help local farmers and herdsmen increase production and income.
