中国的农业 China's Agriculture
China is a big agricultural country with one of the longest histories of agricultural development. Crops such as rice originated in China.
The Chinese government has been paying close attention to agriculture, increasing investment and actively carrying out irrigation and water conservancy capital construction to speed up the modernization of agricultural production. This has led to great achievements, the most outstanding being that, with less than ten percent of the world's cultivatable land, China manages to feed over one-fifth of the world's population.
China's output of various agricultural products has a fast growth rate. The total output of grains, meat, cotton, rape, peanuts and fruits tops the world. However, due to the large population, the amount of the agricultural products per capita is small.
