The area of China's high-standard farmland will total 1.2 billion mu (about 80 million hectares) by 2030, an official said, according to The Xinhua News Agency reports.

"Farmland is a cornerstone of food security, and plays a crucial role in the ecosystem and green agricultural development", – said Zhang Taolin, vice minister of agriculture and rural affairs, at a press briefing for a recently released guideline on farmland cultivation.

According to the guideline, 280 million mu of high-standard farmland will also be upgraded by 2030.

"By the end of 2020, the country had developed 800 million mu of high-standard farmland, which helped increase grain production capacity by 10 percent to 20 percent per mu and save costs by 500 yuan (about $77.7) per mu", – Zhang said.

"To achieve the targets, the ministry will help local authorities improve agriculture infrastructure and ramp up disaster prevention and reduction on farmland", – Zhang added.
