President Xi Jinping extended greetings to farmers and people working in agricultural and rural fronts before the third Chinese Farmers' Harvest Festival that falls on Sept 22. Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, stressed the fostering of an atmosphere in the whole society where agriculture, rural areas and farmers are cared for.

This year's harvest is hard-won, given that the country's agricultural production was challenged by a number of adverse factors, including the COVID-19 outbreak, serious flooding along the Yangtze River, the drought in northeastern China and typhoons in coastal areas. Farmers and officials working at the primary level managed to ensure spring plowing and agricultural production amid effective epidemic control. They fought against the disasters and strived to secure the bumper harvest, providing strong support for maintaining overall economic and social stability.
