To build a powerful agricultural country, we should reflect Chinese characteristics, base on China's national conditions, based on the resource endowment of more people and less land, the historical background of agricultural civilization, and the requirements of the times of harmonious coexistence between man and nature. We should take our own road and not simply copy the mode of foreign modern agricultural power.
