China, World's Biggest Wheat Grower, to Meet 2008 Grain Target
(Bloomberg) -- China, the world's biggest wheat grower, expects to meet its grain harvest target this year, keeping pace with the country's rising demand.

Farmers will likely produce about 500 million metric tons of grain in 2008, the State Administration of Grain said in a statement posted on Xinhua News Agency's Web Site today. Last year's harvest was 501.5 million metric tons, it added.

China aims to maintain grain production at stable levels through 2010 amid shrinking amounts of arable land and rising demand for water. The country's demand for grain is increasing because of an expanding population and higher living standards.

Growth in demand for corn outpaced that of wheat and rice last year, the administration said today. The country has achieved a basic supply-demand balance for all major grain products except for soybeans, it added.
