One of the main purposes of the Food and Agriculture Program at IIASA is to build a series of national agricultural models, covering the relevant parts of the world's food production and consumptions.

China, having 22% of the world's population and producing 13,22% of the agricultural production, cannot be neglected in this context. As the first step of investigations, a problem assessment has been prepared. One should stress that the agricultural development in China as discussed in this paper, can be drastically changed in the nearest future. According to the latest information, new agricultural price policies have been introduced, which may have decisive effects. The basic problem, however, of, whether China will be able to feed her population, is a more complex one and depends on a series of different factors. This is an attempt to give a short summary of them.
