The policy was used to protect food supply and natural resources. At present, there were some people still facing poverty and starvation worldwide, and they needed policy to ensure food and water as clean as possible. Production would not destruct forest and water resources. Science and technology helped us produce better, and we would expect a green, clean and productive agriculture.
