HARBIN, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Across China, the autumn harvest is in full swing.

In northeast China, Heilongjiang Province, dubbed China's "grain barn," is poised for another bumper harvest.

Heilongjiang has remained China's top grain producer for 12 years in succession. In 2021, Heilongjiang saw its 18th consecutive bumper year, with a grain harvest of more than 78.68 billion kilograms.

Over the past decade, the province has developed 91.41 million mu (over 6 million hectares) of high-standard farmland, laying a solid foundation for national food security.

Heilongjiang has also achieved a 98-percent mechanization rate in farming. Technologies such as biological breeding and intelligent agricultural machinery assisted with satellite navigation have been popularly applied across the province.
