BROAD lines for the development of commune farming had been laid down in the ‘Resolution on Some Questions Concerning the People’s Communes’. First was the carrying out of the Eight Point Charter, making for intensive, garden-style farming. Second, mechanization and electrification were called for. This was a long-term project. Third, of similar importance but more immediate realization was diversified or ‘five-sided’ farming, the five sides being: field cultivation, forestry and fruit farming, animal husbandry, farm sidelines and fisheries. In mountainous areas such as Yangyi, the starting-point for all these was soil and water conservancy.
