BEIJING — China has rolled out a string of measures to resume the transport and production of agricultural materials, as part of efforts to meet spring farming needs amid the ongoing epidemic fight. 


The country has continued region-specific, tiered and targeted approaches to shore up the work resumption of agricultural material providers, Xie Yan, an official with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, told a press conference on March 22.  


About 88 percent of key enterprises and 90 percent of outlets in the sector have restarted business, restoring the supply to normal levels, he said. 


"Green channels" have been launched to ensure timely transport of agricultural materials, said Wang Xiuchun, an official with the Ministry of Transport, adding that regions with relatively high infectious risks have implemented "point-to-point" non-stop transportation.
