Labor Cost Analysis for Pome Production in Different Cultivation Modes in Hebei Province

Taking the traditional fruit pear as the example, this paper analyzes labor cost for pome production in Hebei Province, based on the representative cases and the research of pome production in different cultivation modes. Firstly, it conducts cost analysis for medium-density pome production in Xinji City, focusing on the comparison of the costs for the main production labor in standard thin planting mode and dwarf close planting mode. According to the research results, labor cost has a great influence on the total production cost of pome. The methods to reduce labor cost include: adopting dwarfing rootstock close planting and intensively efficient pome cultivation method; simplifying the pruning method when matching up the shape of tree; improving soil by the methods of natural grasses and addition of organic materials, and increasing mechanized operation.
