Abstract

The rapid expansion of agricultural research in China in recent years is one indication of the wide-spread interest among Chinese leaders in improving the living conditions of the people. The present tendency is to work primarily on problems of an immediate practical importance. With the basic farm crops the immediate end in view is to make China self-sufficient. There is, however, in China a growing appreciation of the value of agricultural research as one means of helping to develop efficiency in agriculture.
