In recent years, local authorities in Lishui -in the southwest of Zhejiang province- have been actively promoting the region’s strawberry industry.
A series of measures have been taken, intent on boosting the strawberry industry. Among these are introducing advanced planting technology and expanding sales channels. Currently, over 1,333 hectares of strawberry crops are cultivated in Lishui District, which yielded some 30,000 tonnes of fruit in 2020. The output value exceeded 600 million yuan (US$92 million) last year.
