As China becomes a key player in global agro-food markets it is essential to understand the framework that has shaped developments in Chinese agriculture since the introduction of reforms in 1978. This chapter will focus on the processes undertaken since 1990 and identifies the constraints, opportunities and challenges to China’s agricultural development.
