In cooperation with the Institute of Crop Sciences of Zhejiang University, Yunlong town in Ningbo, Zhejiang province planted a new variety of rapeseed in an unused field to develop its tourism industry and increase local incomes.
While common rape plants have bright yellow flowers, the new plants feature colorful blossoms, a higher oil yield, and a longer flowering period. With the arrival of spring, the rape field, which covers an area of more than 25,300 square meters, is in full bloom and has attracted many tourists.
