Learn from Dazhai in agriculture
The "Learn from Dazhai in agriculture" Campaign (Chinese: 农业学大寨, nóngyè xué Dàzhài) was a campaign organized by Mao Zedong in 1963. The campaign encouraged peasants from all over the People's Republic of China to follow from the example of the farmers of Dazhai, Shanxi, by practicing self-sacrifice and political activity. It was better known in English by the town's Wade-Giles romanization Tachai.
It grew in importance after the introduction of the Cultural Revolution, but Chen Yonggui and its other proponents were eventually eased out of power by Deng Xiaoping following the removal of the Gang of Four.
