He also held seminars to solicit opinions from farmers and local officials.

Wen urged the authorities to guarantee the farm supplies, including chemical fertilizers, seeds, pesticides, and fuel for spring planting.

At a water control project on Huaihe River, China's third longest river, Wen called for coordinated control efforts by provinces through which the river runs.

Nineteen key water control projects under the Huaihe River management program have been completed, which improved greatly the ability to combat floods and droughts.
