According to the press conference held on Feb. 9, Shandong is committed to fulfilling the task of replenishing 1.0479 million mu of arable land by 2020 to enhance the amount, quality and the ecological protection and construction of arable land.

Liu Lu, a member of the leading Party group of Shandong Provincial Department of Land and Resources, said that Shandong will step up efforts to push forward the construction of high-standard farmland.

Taking “land reclamation plus modern agriculture” as the supporting platform, Shandong is going to construct high-standard farmland in a big way, carry out farmland upgrading action plan, construct necessary basic facilities of agricultural production, optimize the production function of land, improve the demand of scale operation of agricultural production and give new impetus to the agricultural development.

By 2020, Shandong will replenish 252,800 mu of high-standard farmland featuring contiguous distribution, stable yields despite drought and excessive rain, high yields and friendly ecology to add the existing farmland to 25.13 million mu. The plan will be enforced in 81 counties (prefecture cities or districts) of 15 cities, except Dongying and Laiwu.

At the same time, Shandong will focus on not only the amount and quality but also the ecological protection and construction of farmland. In order to improve the quality of farmland, Shandong will make efforts to ensure the existing amount of 112.88 million mus of farmland and 95.84 mu of basic farmland to provide strong support to food security and increase in grain yield.

Shandong will take measures to intensify the consolidation of farmland, push forward the reclamation of inefficient, damaged and waste land, promote the rational development of the back-up resources suitable for cultivation and increase the effective cultivated land area. Shandong has made a plan that specifies the task of 1.0479 million mu of farmland adding to the existing amount from the year of 2016 to 2020.

Non-cultivated farming land will be adjusted in a proper manner to improve the utilization efficiency of land and promote the sustainable development of agriculture.
