peasant webs 2
Number two on a Baidu search for 农民网 is Jiangsu’s Modern Peasant 现代农民, a site run by the provincial committee for implementing a policy called "万名科技专家兴农富民工程" — can’t quite understand it, but something like "Scientific Experts Promoting Rural Wealth and Rural Projects." It’s a government site listing current policies, meetings, and projects. Not much human interest here.
The next is more interesting: Jintan Peasant is a site run by the city of Jintan, also in Jiangsu province. Apparently the Jiangsu governmental apparatus has a strong web presence. This is state internet at its most typical: articles lauding such-and-such a township for its enthusiastic work in doing the latest survey of rural incomes; the progress in implementing "modernized model villages"; the establishment of a committee on fruit varieties; work reports on the progress of establishing new villages and new rural education. There are also analyses of production and consumption numbers for various agricultural products, such as mushrooms and edible fungi. Interesting for those trying to understand rural reforms, implementation of central government policies, on-the-ground agricultural data, and those with a general interest in Chinese political slogans. The site had 365 visitors today.
