Production subsidy

On the 18th of April 2016, a joint announcement from China's Ministries of Finance and Agriculture revealed that a pilot programme which simplified the provision of agricultural subsidies to Chinese farmers would be rolled out nationwide.

The policy combines three earlier area payments (AKA the 'three subsidies' policy: direct payments for grain producers, comprehensive subsidy on agricultural inputs and seed variety subsidy) into a single area payment. Four-fifths of the funds allocated for this payment are intended to protect arable land fertility and to preserve grain production capacity and one-fifth to support large-scale production within so-called 'new-style' farms.
