Agriculture is the most important and weak sector among our economic departments,up to 2012, which is not change. According to People's Daily, in 2012 Chinese grain output is 589.57 million tons, increase of 18.36 million tons than last year, increase rate of 3.2%. this is wonderful and not easy. Even if so Chinese grain consumption is faster than grain output increase. Chinese grain consumption consists of both population increase and per capita consumption increase. At the end of 2012 the population of Chinese mainland is 1.354 billions, increase of 6.69 millions, which is not too fast. But per capita consumption increase is too fast, in 2007 up to 380 ㎏, in 2012 about 500 ㎏. Today our grain consumption are going close to European and give chase to American, so in the future Chinese grain supply is more serious and critical.
