China To Push For Higher Grain Yields To Ensure Food Security For It's Huge Population

Republic of China, the world's top buyer of soy and corn, will push for higher grain yields across large areas of farmland as it seeks to ensure food security for its huge population, state media reported on Wednesday, citing an annual rural policy meeting. China reported a record corn crop this year and bumper harvests of other grains, but Beijing continues to be concerned with food security, particularly amid rising tensions with trade partners, climate-related disasters and military conflicts. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/business/china-push-higher-grain-yields-ensure-food-security-4003771

        China's emphasis on achieving higher grain yields as part of its rural policy is driven by a commitment to ensuring food security for its massive population. Despite recording record corn crops and bumper harvests, China remains concerned about food security, citing potential challenges such as climate-related disasters, military conflicts, and tensions with trade partners. The focus on increasing grain yields aligns with broader global efforts to address food security and build resilience in agricultural systems, particularly in the face of climate change-related uncertainties.

                    This is a nice step! However, it is important to prioritize sustainable practices that ensure long-term food security and avoid damaging the ecosystem.

                      @gorffly_mokua I agree, the bottom line must be suitability. I hope all measures put in place for the sake of food security will not harm the environment.
