AgriChina Investor 1207

The question that who will cultivate land in the future appears to be superfluous as China has hundreds of millions of farmers. However, this question is real. Since the early 1990s, many farmers left home to work in cities. At present, the lack of farmers in villages has impacted the agricultural production in some areas.

Young rural residents like to work in cities because cultivating land is toilsome with very little money earned. “Many people have left the countryside, while the left are becoming older. At present, there is no 20s to 30s farmers in our village. Most of the farmers here are in their 40s to 60s. Who will cultivate the land in the future?” said Liu Junming, a farmer in a small village in Shanxi Province.

In fact, Chinese government has paid attention to this issue. It has strengthened the promotion of land transfer and the mechanization in agriculture, hoping to solve this problem and some achievements have been received.

However, there is still a large part of land in China that is not suitable for mechanization, thus the government should continue to find more ways to solve the labour force shortage in these regions.
