China Drought-Affected Area ‘Limited,’ Farm Adviser Chen Says

March 6 (Bloomberg) -- The total area in China affected by drought is “limited” and grain prices will remain “basically stable,” said Chen Xiwen, the State Council’s deputy director of agricultural affairs.

Winter wheat only accounts for 22 percent of China’s total grain output and even at the height of the drought only a third of the crops was affected, said Chen, who was speaking at a new conference at the meeting of the National People’s Congress in Beijing.

After rains and irrigation conditions have been relieved further, the impact can be “minimized,” Chen said.
