China aims to increase its grain production capacity. The 13th five-year-plan for the development of the rural economy was published on Thursday by the National Development and Reform Commission.

It says China aims to boost grain output capacity to 550 million tonnes in 2020 from 500 million tonnes last year.

The state planner also reiterated a target for zero growth in fertilisers and pesticides by 2020 and a plan to promote recycling of plastic films widely used on crops.

China also wants to see higher levels of mechanisation and more innovation to increase efficiency in the agriculture sector, and will encourage more value-added farm products such as organic produce.
