    Default A Uyghur Farmer's Income

    A Uyghur Farmer’s Income

    A typical Uyghur farmer, in the southern part of “Xinjiang”, has a total of 6*660 square meters cultivable farmland. I calculated the following total annual income for the average family.
    Most majority of the income comes from wheat.

    Wheat Expenditures:
    Sowing ¥100
    Chemicals ¥400
    Seeds ¥50
    Water ¥360
    Tractors and machine hire ¥500
    Total ¥1410
    Income from Wheat
    Wheat grains 2500
    Straw ¥1000
    Total ¥4000
    Other Incomes
    Cattle and sheep ¥500
    Fruit and veg. ¥500
    Total ¥1000
    The Total Annual Income of A Uyghur Farmer Family ¥5000-¥1410=¥3590
    This is the income of a typical Uyghur family who has an average of 6 members. Each one lives on $75 income each year, this includes food, clothing and winter heating etc.
    A ton of coal $90
    A day in a hospital $200
    A in the University $1200

    A poor farmer earns much less. The Uyghur farmers are not able to move to other places as Chinese immigrants occupied vast land and water.

    Most of the Chinese people in "Xinjiang" are government officials, state owned company workers, the state owned Construction and Production Corp. people. Their incomes are protected by the state. They have much higher incomes and the state provides them with health insurances, winter allowance, education allowance etc. On avearge, they earn 5-10 times more.
