The planting area of thunder bamboo in more than 20 villages is more than 40,000 mu. Some of the freshly mined thunder bamboo shoots were sent to the market immediately with dew.   

The Datian thunder bamboo shoots moistened by spring rain are produced in large quantities, and the price is affordable too. A farmer can dig nearly a hundred catties in half a day. It was seen at the Zhonggongmiao Market in Yinzhou on March 22 that the retail price of Datian thunder bamboo shoots was only about 7 yuan per kilogram. In Xikou, the current wholesale price was about 3 yuan per kilogram.

The person in charge of the Zhongyinlong Bamboo Shoots Professional Cooperative in Xiaoxi'ao Village said that recently there has been enough rains and the bamboo shoots in Datian have grew very quickly. They are tender and have good quality. "This year the cooperative introduced a new automated production line for braised bamboo shoots, which can process tens of thousands of catties of bamboo shoots every day."
