Editor Notes

As the shrinking of area of arable land in China continues due to the speeding up of urbanization in recent years, the Chinese government is now planning to carry out more measures to stop the shrinking of arable land and ensure grain security.

Recently, Ministry of Land and Resources of China released to carry out a policy, namely National Land Consolidation Planning (2011-2015), aiming to increase effective area of arable land by 1.6 million ha. and build up high standard farmland of 26.67 million ha. during this period. Although it is predicted that the total investment of the plan is predicted to reach USD95.24 million, the gains are obvious. After the construction of the high standard farmland project, China’s grain production capacity is predicted to increase by 25,000,000t/a.
