      China's future food security is challenged by problems such as low efficiency of resource use and resource shortages, diminishing return in yield response, competition for nonagricultural land uses, and environmental degradation. In this article, we analyze historical, temporal, and spatial variation in total grain production as well as the overall developing trend of current and future grain production, and discussed relevant options to overcome production constraints and further promote grain production in China.
