As one of many eighteen field-specific studies comprising the excellent scope of the strategic normal document of the chinese language Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range making plans for constructing technology and expertise within the box of agriculture. They every one craft a roadmap for his or her sphere of improvement to 2050. of their entirety, the final and sub-group studies examine the evolution and legislation governing the advance of technology and know-how, describe the decisive impression of technological know-how and know-how at the modernization approach, expect that the realm is at the eve of an approaching S&T revolution, and speak to for China to be totally ready for this new around of S&T development. in line with the exact learn of the calls for on S&T innovation in China’s modernization, the studies draw a framework for 8 easy and strategic structures of socio-economic improvement with the help of technological know-how and expertise, figure out China’s S&T roadmaps for the suitable 8 uncomplicated and strategic platforms in keeping with China’s fact, additional aspect S&T projects of strategic value to China’s modernization, and supply S&T decision-makers with complete consultations for the improvement of S&T innovation in step with China’s truth. Supported through illustrations and tables of information, the reviews supply researchers, govt officers and marketers with suggestions pertaining to study instructions, the making plans approach, and funding. based in 1949, the chinese language Academy of Sciences is the nation’s maximum educational establishment in common sciences. Its significant obligations are to behavior examine in simple and technological sciences, to adopt national built-in surveys on traditional assets and ecological atmosphere, to supply the rustic with medical information and consultations for government’s decision-making, to adopt government-assigned initiatives in regards to key S&T difficulties within the technique of socio-economic improvement, to start up group of workers education, and to advertise China’s high-tech corporations via its energetic engagement in those parts.

Economic globalization and trade liberalization is an inevitable trend. Chinese agriculture will have to face and adapt to the international economic environment with a positive attitude. Under this environment, the security and safety of agricultural products in China will face enormous challenges. Roadmap 2050 with the increase in the demand for agricultural products (Table 1-1) in the future, the increase of agricultural production in the future will mainly come from the increase in crop yield.
Roadmap 2050 cultural supply and demand. The huge potential demands for the development of a modern bio-energy industry in China will not only need regular stimulation techniques to promote the overall increase of agricultural products to ease the pressure on products supply, but it also needs to carry out pioneering research and develop energy plants to increase the supply of biomass feedstock in the production. In addition to providing space for agricultural development, the increased demand for agricultural multifunction will further increase the overloading pressure on land and water resources.
