Production subsidy

On the 4th of April, 2018, the Chinese government released the 2018 'Agricultural Strengthening Policy'.

In its second iteration since 2017, the 2018 policy was significant as it announced for the first time that soybean farmers in the north-eastern provinces of Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang and Inner Mongolia would be able to receive more subsidies than those farming maize.

It also confirmed the continued enaction of the 2016 'three subsidies' policy (see related state act).

The rest of the plan consists of the reporting of successful implementation of other policies (such as the crop rotation pilot programme, see related measure), and the intention to further increase efficiency in various areas of the agricultural sector.

The specific subsidy amounts are yet to be announced (as of May 2018), hence the amber status of this intervention.
