Stepping under the warm sunshine, walking through tens of thousands of acres of standardized mulberry gardens, and walking into the upgraded sericulture greenhouse, Professor Lu said: ” Xiangyun’s abundant land resources, climatic resources suitable for the growth of sericulture and the optimization of the agricultural and rural industrial structure are extremely conducive to the development of the sericulture industry!”
In the “base + Farmers + Leading Enterprises + Cooperatives”, and through exchanges and discussions with county and rural cadres, business leaders, cooperative professional technicians, and sericulture farmers, the experts gained an in-depth understanding of Xiangyun’s sericulture production, processing, sales, and technology. Services, etc.
Since the development of the sericulture industry in the 1980s, Xiangyun County has actively carried out the creation of high-yield mulberry gardens, interplanting between mulberry gardens, convenient and provincial sericulture, and comprehensive sericulture. Utilization and development, etc., have achieved good results. On that day, it had just been awarded the plaque of “China’s Hometown of Sericulture” by the Chinese Sericulture Society.

There are many sericulture enterprises in the area such as Yunnan Huangzheng Group Company, which have embarked on the path of industrialized management of mulberry, silkworms, cocoons and silk, providing strong scientific and technological and industrial support for the county’s rural revitalization.
“Xiangyun has the natural resource conditions and industrial, economic and social foundation to build a high-quality silkworm cocoon raw material base in Yunnan and the country.” Professor Lu Xingmeng said, This synergistic Xiangyun has taken a new approach. In the future, the development of the sericulture industry will be based on reducing labor input, reducing labor intensity and increasing the comprehensive output of mulberry and silkworms. With comprehensive utilization as the core, we will achieve cost savings and efficiency increases in the entire industry, and the industry will be able to Be bigger and stronger and achieve steady and long-term development.
It is understood that Xiangyun County is actively broadening the idea of ”talent + technology” to support the development of the sericulture industry, and exploring the construction of “national + provincial + state + county + township + village” “Sericulture professional and technical personnel training system. Using an “open” approach to talent introduction, communication and information exchange channels have been established with universities and high-tech research institutions such as Zhejiang University, China Sericulture Society, and Yunnan Sericulture Society, and a “Dong Zhanpeng Expert Workstation” has been built to strengthen scientific and technological development. It creates good conditions to drive farmers to get rich and improve the quality and efficiency of the sericulture industry, allowing the people to truly feel the changes and benefits brought about by rural revitalization.
