Abstract Despite its huge population and expanding industrial economy, most of China's inhabitants are farmers. This program journeys to Hong Kong, Guangzhou, and Beijing, exploring the relationship between Chinese agriculture and the urban centers of the country. Featuring visits to large-scale and family-operated farms, a walk along the Great Wall, and an interview with the U.S. embassy's agricultural attache, the program illuminates China's efforts to improve crop yields, food distribution, and environmental conditions.
