Abstract

China feeds 22 % of the world’s population, yet commands only 9 % of the arable land, necessitating an intensive approach to agricultural production. Food production more than doubled in China from 239.96 million tons in 1970 to 530.82 million tons in 2009. Among other factors, application of nitrogen fertilizers has contributed to this remarkable increase.
