The “north” bears the burden of grain production, and Guangdong ranks at the bottom?”Grain transport from the North to the South” became the mainstream

The people are the foundation of the nation, and the valley is the life of the people.Food is so important!Food is the basic guarantee of national life and is one of the most valued industries in the world.This time, let’s talk about, what are the major grain-producing provinces in China?What contributions have been made?China’s total grain output was 682.85 million tons last year, an increase of 13.36 million tons or 2 percent over 2020, according to the National Bureau of Statistics.Among them, the self-sufficiency rate of wheat and rice is over 100%, and that of corn is over 95%.The three provinces with the highest grain output were Heilongjiang, Henan and Shandong, with a grain output of 78.677 million tons, 65.442 million tons and 55.57 million tons respectively.The total grain output of the three provinces alone accounts for about 30 percent of the country’s total.Anhui and Jilin ranked fourth and fifth, with output of 40.876 million and 40.392 million tons respectively.In terms of geographical location, there are two provinces in northeast and East China respectively in the top five.The sixth to tenth provinces are Inner Mongolia, Hebei, Jiangsu, Sichuan and Hunan.Heilongjiang province, which ranks first in grain output, has to be filled with emotion.We only know that Guangdong province has ranked first in China’s GDP for 33 consecutive years. Few know that in terms of grain output, Guangdong’s per capita output is 0.1 ton, ranking the bottom among provinces.Heilongjiang, which has produced the most grain for 11 consecutive years, accounted for 11.5 percent of the total.Per capita grain production data also showed Heilongjiang was far ahead with 2.47 tons per capita.Worthy of the name is the “ballast stone” of China’s food security.Netizens only talk about heilongjiang’s GDP ranking behind the country and its relatively slow growth, but few people know that Heilongjiang is quietly contributing to China’s food security.Jilin ranked second with 1.67 tons per capita.With the addition of Liaoning, which ranks seventh with 0.60 tons per capita, northeast China is still one of the most important grain-producing areas and the largest basic “granary” in China.With a combined population of 98 million, the three northeastern provinces account for only 6.94 percent of China’s total population, but 21.2 percent of the country’s grain output.The number two province, Henan, was not easy to produce even after being affected by natural disasters.Shandong, in third place, surpassed 55 million tons for the first time.At the same time, maintain a very high rate of comprehensive mechanization of planting and harvesting, truly achieve the “technical grain”.Anhui, ranked fourth, is the only province in the south to have net grain transfers.Every year, Anhui has a large amount of grain, which is supplied to Shanghai, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Fujian and other places.Inner Mongolia ranks third with 1.60 tons of grain per capita.Inner Mongolia is not only a big province of coal, but also an important province of grain.The three northeastern provinces and Inner Mongolia increased grain output by 18.8 billion jin, contributing 70.3 percent to the national grain increase.Generally speaking, With 9% of the world’s arable land, China has solved the food problem of about 20% of the world’s population. It is indeed not easy.However, from the overall distribution of grain production areas, China’s economic center of gravity in the south, but the grain center of gravity in the north.Visible, north grain south, has become the mainstream.The northeast and North China plains are rich and fertile, with large tracts of fertile land conducive to grain production.But everyone knows that agriculture is the least profitable industry, and it is difficult to drive the rapid development of the economy.However, as the foundation of people’s livelihood, these agriculture is absolutely untouchable.As can be seen from the ranking of food output, the higher agricultural output, the lower GDP and growth rate.At present, the overall economic development of cities in the north of China is quite difficult, and the total economic volume of the south is about twice that of the north.Guangdong, Zhejiang and Fujian, three economically developed provinces, produce less grain.This suggests that, at least in terms of food production, the North has made a significant contribution.Undoubtedly for our country will firmly control food in their own hands, laid a solid foundation, is also the strong support of China’s economic development.A province that you think is economically backward may be quietly contributing to the country in some areas.This is also the reason why we particularly dislike regional discrimination!
