Tridge summary

Among agricultural products grown in Buyeo, South Chungcheong Province, 7 items produced the most in the country. Buyeo County announced on the 18th that it ranked first in the nation in terms of production of seven items, including watermelon, chestnuts, tomatoes, mushrooms, melons, shiitake mushrooms, and king jujubes (apple jujube), among 10 Buyeo products last year. In particular, king jujubes and mushrooms accounted for more than 50% of the national production. Wang jujube is a new entry into the 10 Buyeo list reorganized by Buyeo-gun at the end of last year, and it produced 975 tons last year, accounting for 54% of the national production. Wang jujube requires less labor and is rapidly emerging as a new income crop in aging rural areas because it is relatively easy to switch crops to existing facility vegetable farms. Mushrooms also produced 5,417 tons, accounting for 57% of the national production. Buyeo-gun established a mushroom industry research center in Jeonggak-ri, Seokseong-myeon last November, and is researching ways to develop mushroom cultivation technology suitable for local characteristics and to foster the mushroom industry.
