China’s Grain Production: the Evolving Trends after WTO Accession

Grain is China’s most significant agricultural product, its output being the most watched indicator by government officials, traders and researchers both inside and outside China. This paper looks into China’s grain production trends in the recent decade and how the grains industry has responded to the WTO accession. It examines changes in total grain output, grain crop composition, regional distribution of grain production, and also changes in production technologies and costs. The paper concludes by addressing a number of emerging issues that are likely to affect future grain production in China.
