Crop Farming in China

With over 15-year development, CCMs research in Agriculture ...
Crop farming has enjoyed a quite good start at the beginning of 2016. In this year, the Chinese government decided to cut 666.67 ha of land used for corn cultivation as the key task of crop farming adjustment. It is predicted that the arable land of soybean would increase 400,000 ha this year and that of wheat and rice would remain stable, according to China's Ministry of Agriculture (MOA).
In 2015, the output of grain crops in China has kept increasing for 12 consecutive years, which has eased the tense demand. However, the structural contradictions in China's agriculture begin to occur, especially in crop farming. The supply and demand of wheat and rice remain balanced. However, corn is in oversupply, while soybean is in over demand, with over 80 million tonnes exported in China in 2015.
In Nov. 2015, MOA issued the Guidance on the Corn Structural Adjustment in Liandaowan Region. The Guidance pointed out that China will strive to reduce the corn planting area in Liandaowan region by more than 3.33 million ha (50 million mu) and keep it at 6.67 million ha (100 million mu) by 2020.
There seems to be a challenging year for crop farming in China. For your better understanding and judgment about crop farming in China, CCM's report Crop Farming in China provides you the comprehensive supply and demand situation of the whole China’s crop farming in the past five years (2011-2015), including seven major crops of corn, rice, wheat, soybean, cotton, potato and rapeseed. The information of import & export, price and consumption of them could also be found in this report.
