Finally a major government is trying to turn the tide to the future
sustainability of farmers. I wonder if this will encourage the US to do the
same. How are the Chinese implementing this? Subsidies? How will they train
the farmers to grow crops they have no experience in? How will the marketing
channels be established?
Now that the US has given nuclear secrets to the Chinese maybe they can return
the favor by telling us their secrets in an agriculture restructuring plan.
