    Cultivatable land in China is become very scarce. Urban growth has increased to 2.5 times faster than land can be cultivated for agriculture. Companies are buying out small villages and placing them in cities, just so they can build urban communities and charge a high price for them.

    According to an article from early 2003, the amount of cultivable land per person in China has shrunk from 0.17 hectares per person in 1950 to 0.07 hectares in recent times. In addition to urbanization, this shrinkage of land has also been caused by converting farms into forests for conservation purposes. Farmers there have also been switching to crops that are worth more, and so do not require as much land in order to make the same amount of money.
