20% more: China's statistics office adjusts crop estimates for the last 10 years

China, the world's second largest producer of corn, has today adjusted its data on the corn crops of the last 10 years, a spokesman for an official commission of experts reports. As a result, the estimates for the corn crop of the coming years increase.
China's national statistics office, CNGOIC, said the corn crop was 215.9 million tonnes in 2017, but after the adjustment that took place, the crop was 20% larger, or 259 million tonnes.
There is no justification for the adaptation so far.
Presumably, the acreage has been significantly larger. Whereas previously 35.5 million hectares were used, now 42.5 million hectares. Yields were also estimated slightly higher.
The harvest in 2016 has now been estimated at 263 million tons, compared to 265 million tons in 2015, making it the largest corn crop in China ever.
The 2018/19 harvest is now estimated at 259 million tonnes by the Bureau of Statistics. Most recently, the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture estimated 213 million tons. Tomorrow, the ministry will release its next crop and demand estimate in Beijing.
