E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):

This year , our school used the private network of the Education Group which was in its initial stage , therefore , we did not have a complete facility, what’s more , we did not have enough access to these computes as abundant computer classes for all the classes .The design of our webpage and western stories were arranged in the administrating office which were equipped with three computers , however , we still had not enough access to these three as teachers also searched their information and printed materials here. As a result , sometimes we had to write elsewhere , including teachers’ offices and learders’ offices.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

1,limited time. AS the activity began much later than the past years and we had a tight schedule which require us to get up at 6.30 , had early stuy hall at 7a.m. and released our night study hall at 9 p.m. ,meanwhile , our headteacher Liu were busier with the administration work , therefore , students had to use the time on the PE classes , free time ,lunch and dinner time , even weekends ,to proceed the project gradually. 2, In ou town ,Fuxing village which is far from us boasts a reletively large scale in growing kiwi with some mature companies which have a strict administration and do not allow people to enter at will. At weekends , students had to finish their homework , do housework and field work sometimes , as a consequence , it was hard for us to arrange interviews. At last , we turned to our headmaster XU whose hometown was Fuxing to connect for us , and we finished our interview at the end of Ocotober. 3, Information collection . Our theme this yeas is around Pujiang kiwi which were fragamently planted by peasants in these two or three years mainly along the Linxihe Basin in Pujiang . Though this was a lange quantity but failed in scale without fruits yielding mostly , therefore , farmers could not provide us very useful information . Finally , we chose Fuxing Village which grew kiwi earlier as our visiting destination .

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Pujiang is actively support and develop kiwu leading enterprises and special farmer cooperating organization to form an industrial opreation model which combines special farmer cooperating organization with those leading enterprises and drive farmers with special farmer cooperating organization , thus formulating a benefit linking mechanism featuring possible quality tracing and guranteed farmer interests . In this way ,we improve the systematizaion and profits making of fruits peasants and sustainable development of the industry. Pujiang has one more namecard --- Pujiang kiwi.
