In addition, the country's reduction in soybean imports could curb the rise in international soybean prices to some extent, which will highlight China's contribution to stabilizing global food market
In the same vein, China is also a leader in growing salt tolerant rice, 691 kg per mu translates to 10000kg/ha, that's as good as conventional rice normally gets and allows China to use a large amount of normally non-arable land to grow such a critical food crop.China can grow soy beans is salty soil and it grows well with only natural irrigation and it is flood and drought resistant too.
indeed, and Chinese super rice achieves over 1000kg per mu..In the same vein, China is also a leader in growing salt tolerant rice, 691 kg per mu translates to 10000kg/ha, that's as good as conventional rice normally gets and allows China to use a large amount of normally non-arable land to grow such a critical food crop.
Exclusive: China rolls out GMO corn planting, starts small
It is not weird. Europe did similarly. The whole idea is to prevent GMOs from contaminating local selective bred varieties. Importing processed GMO foods carries no such risk.If they slowly move everything into GMO, then there would be 50% more yield, for soybean and corn crops, coming directly from China, more than enough to be self-sufficient I think. I don't know why they waited until now and relied so extensively on their enemy the US or on Brazil which is so far away from them and unreliable. They seem to import GMO imports, however, outlawed GMOs domestically, which is weird.
Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed the cabinet and the central bank to study the conclusion of an intergovernmental agreement on the Russia-China New Land Grain Corridor by October 1, Russia's Sputnik news agency reported on Thursday.
In order to better ensure grain security and diversify grain imports, China relaxed restrictions on imports of Russian wheat in 2022, Zhang said.
That's about a Germany's worth of new agricultural land - and I mean the total area of Germany, not Germany's land used in agriculture. By the 2040s China will be a net food and energy exporter.China has revealed a plan to break through the core technology for farming on alkali soil in 15th five year plan(2025-2030). which will enable the country's farmers to make good use of the unhealthy soil that occupies more than 500 million mu (333,333 square kilometers) of land. research is on advance stages. team is optimistic about breakthrough in next few years.
China has about 1.5 billion mu of saline-alkali land, of which about 550 million mu are available for utilization. The land is a potential resource for the safeguarding of the country's food security.
"Compared with desertified land or land suffering from stony desertification, the improvement of saline-alkali land is less difficult and much more feasible. If it can be fully improved and utilized, the saline-alkali land will become China's new granary in the future," said Shi Weiyong, a professor at the School of Environment and Resources at Zhejiang University.
