National Bureau of Statistics: Annual grain output hit a new high


2021-12-06: [Article Link]  National food production data published by the National Statistical Office show that total national food production in 2021 was 136.5 billion pounds, an increase of 26.7 billion pounds, an increase of 2.0 per cent over the previous year, and increased food production throughout the year to more than 1.3 trillion pounds in seven consecutive years. Of this amount, autumn food production was 101.78 billion pounds, an increase of 19.1 billion pounds, an increase of 1.9 per cent over the previous year. (i) The area of maize and wheat seeding has increased and the rice crop has decreased slightly. In 2021, the national area of cereal seeding was 1,503 million acres, representing an increase of 33.2 million acres over the previous year, an increase of 2.3 per cent over the previous year. Since last year, maize prices have risen significantly, cropping efficiency has increased, farmers have increased their will to grow maize, and the area of maize planting in the country has reached 650 million acres, an increase of 3.9 million acres over the previous year, an increase of 5.0 per cent over the previous year. Thanks to favourable factors such as the suitability and improved efficiency of the soil sowing season, the area of wheat planting was 354 million acres, an increase of 2.83 million acres over the previous year, an increase of 0.8 per cent, reversing the four-year downward trend in the area. The area of rice planting has been 449 million acres, a decrease of 23.1 million acres over the previous year, a decrease of 0.5 per cent. (ii) A decline in the area of beans and a steady increase in the area of potatoes. In 2021, 152 million acres of pulses were planted nationwide, representing a decrease of 12.7 per cent from the previous year of 22.9 million acres. Of these, 126 million acres of soybeans were planted, a decrease of 14.8 per cent from the previous year of 22 million acres, owing mainly to lower yields of soybeans compared to maize. While farmers'will to grow less than they did in the autumn, the national area of potatoes was 110 million acres, an increase of 1.8 million acres, an increase of 1.7 per cent from the previous year. (i) Increased wheat, rice monocre production and a slight decrease in maize production. In 2021, the country produced 421 kg per acre per grain, an increase of 1.4 kg per acre per acre compared to the previous year, an increase of 0.3 per cent. Of this, rice produced 474 kg per acre per acre, an increase of 1.6 per cent per acre compared to the previous year; wheat produced 387 kg per acre, an increase of 4.6 kg per acre compared to the previous year, an increase of 1.2 per cent per acre compared to the previous year; soy produced 419 kg per acre per acre compared to the previous year, a decrease of 0.4 per cent per acre per acre per acre, a decrease of 0.5 per cent compared with the previous year. III. Total food production increased by 26.7 billion pounds, or 2.0 per cent, in 2021, and summer and early rice production increased by 29.1 billion pounds and 56 billion pounds, respectively, by 6.2 billion and 1.4 billion pounds, respectively, over the previous year; autumn production by 101.78 billion pounds, or 19.1 billion pounds, over the previous year. Total grain production increased by 26.7 billion pounds, or 2.0 per cent, over the previous year. (i) Rice, wheat and maize production all increased. In 2021, national cereal production increased by 126.5 billion pounds, or 32.5 billion pounds, or 2.6 per cent, over the previous year. Of this amount, rice production increased by 2,257.7 billion pounds, or 0.5 per cent, over the previous year; wheat production by 2,739 million pounds, or 2.0 per cent, over the previous year; and maize production increased by 2,4.51 billion pounds, or 4.6 per cent, over the previous year. In 2021, the national production of beans was 39.3 billion pounds, or 14.1 per cent less than the previous year, of which 32.8 billion pounds, or 6.4 billion pounds less than the previous year, fell by 16.4 per cent. The national production of potatoes was 60.9 billion pounds, an increase of 1.1 billion pounds, or 1.9 per cent, compared to the previous year. (iii) Three provinces in the north-east and in the interior contributed more to the increase. 27 of the country's 31 provinces (districts and municipalities) produced more food. The combined production of the three provinces in the north-east and in the interior of Mongolia increased by 18.8 billion pounds, contributing 70.3 per cent to the increase in national food production. In 2021, the national food harvest, which has stabilized for seven consecutive years at more than 1.3 trillion pounds, provided strong support for ensuring food security in the country, coping with the complex and volatile internal and external situation, and overcoming the various risk challenges. It provided a solid basis for the success of the 14th Five-Year Plan of Action, promoting high-quality economic and social development and shaping a new development landscape. Note: National data on summer grains have been revised based on actual wheat production in parts of Gansu, Ningxia, Xinjiang, etc.
