st of grain is likely for the whole year, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs said on Friday.上海后花园

Total grain production for the summer reached nearly 142 billion kilograms, an increase of 2.1 percent com

上海后花园品茶微信pared with last year and the same level as 2017, the year with a historically high summer yie

ld, said Wei Baigang, head of the development and planning department at the ministry.

Meanwhile, grain to be harvested in the fall is growing normally. The sprea上海后花园

d of the crop-eating fall armyworm, a species that entered China from Southeast Asia in Jan

上海后花园品茶微信uary, has decelerated, laying a foundation for an overall good harvest this year, he said.

Despite favorable signs, natural disasters such as drought and flooding, whic

h have seriously affected many areas, pose obstacles for a good fall harvest, which上海后花园

usually accounts for about 75 percent of the total grain production in China, Wei said.

上海后花园”The ministry will not spare any effort to protect crop production for the summer…. It will try its best to guide local au

thorities to prevent and control fall armyworms. It will work with related departments to closely watch fluctuations of d上海后花园品茶微信

rought and flooding, carry out emergency plans in a timely way in case of need and intensify oversight for im

上海后花园品茶微信plementation of disaster-relief measures to ensure another good harvest this year,” Wei said.

In addition to grains such as wheat and rice, production of other ma

jor agricultural products such as beef, mutto上海后花园n, aquatic products and milk also inc

reased in the first half of the year, resulting in adequate supply and stable prices, he said.

With increased agricultural production, China’s international trade in agricu

上海后花园品茶微信lture kept growing in the first half of the year. China imported 416 billion yuan ($60.5 b

illion) worth of agricultural products in the first five months and exported 208 billio

上海后花园The university said in a statement on Friday that online comments on its buddy program aroused public attention recently.

With the current trade frictions between the US and China, what is badly n上海后花园

More tension and worsening relations across the Taiwan Straits are not in the interests of the US. Its meddling in the internal af上海后花园

Ouyang Ziyuan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said that China will launch a mission to Mars with M

artian satellite, Martian lander, as well as Martian rover. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:上海后花园女神会所

In his speech, Ouyang mentioned that one of the main purposes of the

probe is to determine if the planet is suitable for terraforming so humans can inhabit it.上海后花园

For some, his words may sound like science fiction. It remains a fact t

hat only about 400 people in the whole of human history have ever ventured into space. Of th

em, only 12 astronauts have left their steps on the moon, the nearest celestial body to our Earth.

No human has been to Mars yet. SpaceX has an ambitious plan to set up a human colony on the Red Planet, but NASA’s ex

isting plan to get humans to the planet seems to have been kiboshed by funding constraints.

China has now thrown its hat into the ring.

While it might be some time in the future, the good news is, once humankind inh

abits Mars and starts to terraform it, the planet’s potential can be fully exploited and its rich supply of resources can p

rovide ample support for human kind’s further development and exploration of the planet.

In terms of product category, the tariffs are targeted at intermediate and capital goods. Intermediate prod
