BEIJING, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- China's legislature on Friday adopted an amendment to the Law on the Popularization of Agricultural Technology which will grant free agro-technical popularization services.

The amendment, to take effect from Jan. 1 next year, explicitly stipulates that the main principle for agro-technical popularization is to help the sustainable development of agriculture and the rural economy as well as to increase the income of farmers.

All government-run agro-technical popularization institutions should observe their duties for public welfare by offering free agro-technical popularization services to agricultural workers and organizations, the amendment says.

The duties include introduction of key agricultural technology and implementation of the monitoring and prevention over crop pests and agricultural disasters.
