Challenges and Opportunities in Developing Beijing Modern Urban Agriculture

We analyze development situations of Beijing modern urban agriculture from agricultural distribution, agricultural foundation and agricultural industrial system. Our research on challenges and opportunities of Beijing modern urban agriculture indicates that challenges include short of resources, deterioration of environment, and high production cost, and opportunities include large market space, advanced agricultural industrial experience and many other development opportunities. On the basis of these, we put forward development thought of Beijing modern urban agriculture in “the Twelfth Five Plan” period. We must improve foundation, integration and demonstration of agriculture; orient towards market and satisfy medium and high end market demands; actively cultivate and strengthen agricultural industrial level; create unique product brand; and raise added value of agricultural products.
