Autumn cut

Banjiegou Town, Qitai County, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, is located at the northern foot of the East Tianshan Mountains. The wheat cultivation here has a history of more than 2,000 years. Due to the long sunshine time and the large temperature difference between day and night,the wheat produced is high in gluten and high in nutrition. At the same time, the undulating landforms and beautiful scenery here attract tourists from all over the world. Every year from late August to early September, when the wheat is mature, the combine harvester will start to harvest. Taken at the end of August 2021.
