    "Chinese farmers grow over 21 million hectares of #soybean

    Farmers across China have planted about 21 million hectares of soybean to date, accounting for 37.6% of the country’s total crop area, as farmers respond to the country’s soybean revitalization campaign.

    Nearly 56 million hectares of various crops have been planted across China, achieving more than 60% of the goal. Among them, soybean accounts for 37.6% of the total, according to data released by the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Ministry.

    Specifically, China’s Heilongjiang province saw a significant increase in soybean growth.

    Known as the “hometown of soybeans,” the soybean planting area in Hailun, Heilongjiang, reached nearly 174,000 hectares, an increase of 40,000 hectares compared to last year, according to Wang Baofeng, deputy mayor of the city.

    Government subsidies for soybeans and higher market prices have stimulate the growth in rural areas. As a result, farmers are choosing to sow soybean seeds instead of other crops, said a local farmer, who planted 100 hectares of soybeans on his land.

    At the beginning of this year, the Chinese government issued its soybean revitalization plan, a plan to expand the planting area for soybeans across China. The country aims to increase the area to 9 million hectares by 2020 and to 10 million hectares by 2022."
