China's agricultural areas reported more favorable climate conditions, and a reduced impact from pests and disease in 2020. The grain yield from each mu (0.67 square kilometer) was reported as 382 kilograms, 0.9 kilogram more than 2019 and with y-o-y increase of 0.2 percentage. 

The National Bureau of Statistic data revealed that China reaped another bumper grain harvest in 2020. The grain yield has been sustained above 650 billion kilograms for a period of six years.
