Agricultural production in China - additional information

Although agriculture is an important source of income for many Chinese people, its contribution to the country’s total gross domestic product (GDP) is considerably less than that of the services and the industry sector. However, the contribution of the agricultural sectorin China is remarkably high when compared to those of other developed countries. In the United States, for example, which is the world’s leading agricultural supplier, the agricultural sector contributed merely one percent to the country’s total GDP in 2013. The same year, China’s agricultural sector generated a gross production value of over five trillion yuan, employing more than 31 percent of its total population.
As of 2013, cultivated land made up approximately 13 percent of China’ total land area, and the majority of it is used for food production. Rice production plays an essential role in China’s agriculture as well as in China’s everyday life. In 2013, rice production volume in China amounted to around 204 million tons, making it the leading rice producer worldwide. Besides wheat, corn, and oleiferous plants, tea and tobacco production are also important parts of agriculture in China. China is the world’s largest tobacco producer, generating a production value worth about five billion U.S. dollars in 2013 – three times as much as the runner-up, Brazil.
As the issue of food safety is becoming more and more popular in recent years, the problem of excessive fertilizer usage in China is given increasing attention. In 2010, the total fertilizer consumption in China amounted to nearly 29 million metric tons. In comparison, about 11.6 million metric tons of fertilizers were used in the European Union in the same year.
China’s agricultural market is dominated by big domestic companies. WH Group, a major pork producer, was the largest agricultural company in China in 2014, generating an annual revenue of about 135 billion yuan. After China’s WTO accession, the agricultural market would be generally opened to foreign competitors.
