BEIJING, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- More will be done to promote the application of digital technology in the agriculture sector to reinvigorate the rural economy, Vice Premier Wang Yang said on Monday.

The government should improve Internet infrastructure and rural logistics in the countryside, nurture tech-savvy farmers, and encourage big data in agriculture, Wang said during an inspection in Beijing.

He encouraged companies to explore sustainable business models and take advantage of the Internet to improve supply, techniques and services.

China's cabinet unveiled its "Internet Plus" action plan at the beginning of July, which aims to integrate digital technology into traditional sectors to make them more efficient. Agriculture was on the top of the list.

Wang said the move will brighten the prospects of the sector.
