uraging farmers to grow soybeans, as seen in China and many other countries such as the US, other ways should be expl

Zhou Tianyong, an economics professor at the University of Science
亚博苹果客户端夜网and Technology Beijing, said it is not practical to rejuvenate domestic soybean product
ion solely through the provision of subsidies, which require heavy government investment.
He said more efforts should be made to improve productivity – so that fewer farme亚博苹果客户端夜网
rs can produce more soybeans – to reduce costs and increase domestic competitiveness.
Meanwhile, he suggested that authorities could consider using more uncultivated land, in
亚博苹果客户端夜网品茶微信cluding desert and grassland, to enable it to be used for soybean production.
Ji, from the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Bureau in Wudalianchi city, said domes
tic development of soybeans still faces many challenges, including higher production costs than for imported

ven lower prices, worsening the situation for the domestically produced crop, he said.亚博苹果客户端夜网
“Authorities should formulate more policies to sup
port development of the soybean industry, and provide more support f
亚博苹果客户端夜网品茶微信or the production of non-GM soybeans through financial subsidies and insurance coverage.
“Subsidies should not only cover farmers who plant soybeans, but also other factors suc
h as the research and development of soybeans, logistics, processing and consumption.”亚博苹果客户端夜网
Ji said the authorities could provide more support for soybean insurance cove

In addition, more should be done to protect the environment in m
