we plant it. Do you know why our censtors call China as thr Middle Kingdom？It is because people thought they live in the center of the world. Then why they think so？Because the land here is the most fertile and the climate is the best. so in most time，Chinese people plant rice itself。but recently China also import some rice because the Chinese population is so large
@handsome-panda Is your routine food rice? I mean, your country is so big and it must need a lot of rice. Do your government find for another alternative food? Like my country, some people usually eat corn and cassava as routine food
@Weimin We are basically able to plant more rice using limited land by planting hybrid rice. It's created by Dr. Yuan Longping. We import food too but as far as I know we seem to have no plan to find another main food. I heard a suggestion before that we should plant potatoes to be our main food.
@Weimin Sure! we experienced countless times of food crisis in history. The last time Chinese faced a severe food crisis was in 1959-1961. We call it 3 years of hard time. The most popular opinion is that 30 million people starved to death at that time. But the offical never tells us more information about that because the starvation was caused by the wrong politics from the offical more than a natral disaster.
