China to Cut Corn Production

August 4, 2016 10:00 AM

China plans to cut back on corn production--for the first time in 13 years--by 1.3 million hectares (3.29 million acres), according to Reuters.  China has 37 million hectares planted with corn, up from 23 million hectares in 2001, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

It’s all part of China’s plan announced in March to reduce massive corn stockpiles of nearly 250 million tons of corn. Instead of importing corn to cover any production shortfalls, China plans to use the corn it has in storage.
