The Project

In August 2015, the Federal Ministry of Food and  Agriculture launched the “Sino-German Crop Produc-tion and Agrotechnology Demonstration Park” project within the scope of its bilateral cooperation programme. The project is located in Jiangsu Province on the site of the Huanghai State Farm and belongs to the project- executing agency, the Jiangsu Provincial Agricultural Reclamation and Development Corporation (SKIAD).

The main focus of the project is to support the sustain-able development of Chinese agriculture through fur-ther training and demonstrations in the area of modern, adapted crop production. 

In document no. 1, published in February 2018 to lay out China’s future agricultural strategy, the Chinese government intensifies its pursuit of the shift – initiated in 2015 – from a mere increase of agricultural produc-tion to an improvement of the quality of agricultural products, while at the same time protecting natural resources.

The project ideally complements China’s current agri-cultural strategy and, within regional boundaries, works towards the achievement of the Chinese government’s goals for the agricultural sector.

 

 

Project Objective and Areas of Activities

The aim of the project is to provide managers and other employees in the Chinese agricultural sector with  practical expertise regarding sustainable cultivation methods and modern agricultural engineering via further training programmes and demonstrations, as well as to support the practical implementation of this knowledge.

Major fields of action include:

→→ Tests and demonstrations in the field with the aim of utilising crop production potentials by means of modern, sustainable production and management methods, while at the same time conserving natural resources by using adapted crop rotations and im-proving soil fertility.

→→ Theory courses, e.g. in the area of business organisation and management, practical skills for the proper use of modern crop production technologies and methods.

→→ Training of trainers and multipliers, networking with training institutions, universities and scientific institutions.

→→ Implementation of field and demonstration days, press conferences and other cross-discipline events in order to make the results and findings obtained in the project available to the wider public.

→→ Setup of a project platform, enabling access to project information and exchange with experts, scientists and other interested parties from the  (Chinese) agricultural sector.

→→ Study tours to Germany / Europe promoting active exchange between Chinese and European experts.
