The sugarcane produced in Huajia has been popular for many years due to its thin skin, juicy flesh, crisp and sweet taste. Merchants across the country have come to the village to buy sugarcane.

Farmers weigh sugarcane.

The average yield of sugarcane in the village is eight to ten tons per mu (667 square meters), worth about 12,000 yuan ($1,900). The development of the sugarcane industry has greatly helped increase local famers’ income and boost rural vitalization.
