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).
The output of grain crops in China has been increasing for 12 consecutive years, which has eased the tense demand. However, the structural contradictions in China’s agriculture has begun to occur, especially in crop farming. The supply and demand of wheat and rice has remained balanced. However, corn is in oversupply, while soybean is in over demand, with over 80 million tonnes exported in China in 2015.
