Heilongjiang daily news (reporter Ma Yunxiao) 11 days 11 days, the newspaper held a law to ban the cultivation of genetically modified crops forum, the new amendments to the Heilongjiang province food safety regulations ban transgenic food crops in terms of how to implement the regulations and requirements of the special subject discussion. The experts and scholars and business people speak freely, said this clause is very support and welcome the introduction of the province, and on how to implement the ban in the future put forward many constructive suggestions.
Participants believe that the rejection of genetically modified crops, is the need to build the country’s large granary. Heilongjiang is the country’s largest commodity grain base, Heilongjiang is the country’s food supply. 2015, the province’s total grain output of 136 billion 958 million pounds, accounting for 1\/10 of the country’s total output, the protection of food security is very necessary.
Participants believe that Heilongjiang refused to grow genetically modified grain crops, is to protect the black land, so that the precious, scarce resources, the need for sustainable use, is conducive to future generations wise move. The Northeast Plain is one of the three black belt in the world, and the black soil of Longjiang is the core part of its high content of organic matter, fertile soil, loose soil, the most suitable farming, is a scarce and valuable agricultural resources, planting crops in the black land, the world has been recognized as the most good.
Prohibit the cultivation of genetically modified grain crops, is conducive to ensuring food safety from the source, to protect the black land to reject the risk of surviving genetically modified crops.
Participants believe that the refusal to grow genetically modified grain crops, is the province’s development of green food industry needs. Transgenic technology is one of the most advanced techniques to breed crop varieties, and it is a developing trend of agriculture in twenty-first Century. But when this technology can not accurately answer the security is not safe, for my cold black soil and plant diversity characteristics, by means of legal protection of Longjiang ecological development space, promote the development of green food industry in Longjiang, it is very necessary.
Rejection of genetically modified crops
Protection of black land to build a large barn
Ma Shouyi, researcher at the Academy of land reclamation in Heilongjiang Province
From the perspective of the protection of black land and the country’s large granary, Heilongjiang refused to grow genetically modified grain crops, which is conducive to future generations of wisdom.
The rejection of genetically modified crops, is the need for sustainable use of black land in Longjiang. The Great Plains of Northeast China is one of the three black belts in the world, while the black land in Longjiang is the core component. It has a high content of organic matter, fertile soil, loose soil, the most suitable for farming, is scarce, precious agricultural resources, the cultivation of food on the black land, the world has been recognized as the best. Prohibit the cultivation of genetically modified grain crops, is conducive to ensuring food safety from the source, to protect the black land to reject the risk of surviving genetically modified crops.
Rejection of genetically modified crops, the need for the country’s large granary. Heilongjiang is the country’s largest commodity grain base, Heilongjiang’s food supply to the people of the country. 2015, the province’s total grain output of 136 billion 958 million pounds, accounting for 1\/10 of the country’s total output, in order to protect China’s food security has made important contributions, so the protection of food sources, food security is very necessary. Heilongjiang’s staple food must remain non transgenic plant, which is related to the health problems of people across the country. About GM security is a worldwide topic of debate, whenever we talk about genetically modified food, people will have a psychological fear, there is no harm in transgenic inconclusive when there are risks, avoid is necessary, so our province legislation banning the cultivation of genetically modified, is to protect the big barn the wise choice.
Some time ago I went to the United States, the United States, the main crops are corn, soybeans and wheat. For transgenic maize and soybean; corn used for feed, digest before eating; soybean is the main export; and as the staple food of wheat, but non gmo. So, in the end what is genetically modified, how far away from us? Transgenic technology is one of the most advanced techniques to select the most advanced crop varieties, and it is difficult for traditional researchers to carry out the traditional breeding, which is a developing trend of agriculture in twenty-first Century. Some research units in our province, but also in the research and testing of transgenic technology in agricultural products. But when this technology can not accurately answer the security is not safe, for my cold black soil and plant diversity characteristics, by means of legal protection of Longjiang ecological development space, promote the development of green food industry in Longjiang, it is very necessary.
So how to deal with genetically modified? Our province has legislation banning the cultivation of genetically modified crops, I suggest that the relevant departments issued related policies and measures as soon as possible, strive for the support of national policy, through the cultivation of non GM crops subsidy policy, let farmers see the cultivation of non GM crops can bring greater benefits to them, so that farmers have tasted the sweetness. At the same time, it is necessary to increase the independent innovation and the introduction of synchronous breeding efforts to improve the level of non GM varieties, in order to more effectively prevent the cultivation of genetically modified crops. Governments at all levels need to increase support for the use of conventional varieties and the introduction of technology, independent innovation, in order to ultimately protect this piece of non genetically modified Heilongjiang. At the same time, I also should vigorously promote the development of conservation agriculture, conservation agriculture refers to the minimum of the soil structure, composition and natural destruction of biological diversity, soil management practices to achieve the minimum soil erosion and degradation and water pollution to the minimum. The implementation of conservation agriculture is conducive to the sustainable development of agriculture, is an important measure to protect the ecological environment, the best way to save is to reduce the cost of agricultural production, is the most effective way, is currently facing the global food market of the myriads of changes, reduce the cost of agricultural production, increase farmers’ income, our province is planning the black land conservation agriculture association, believe the near future, Longjiang’s agricultural production will embark on a sustainable healthy development track.

To promote the six oriented measures
Non GMO soybean core protection area
Director of the provincial science and Technology Bureau Zou Changshi administration Nongken 93
The newly revised Heilongjiang food safety regulations, made in accordance with the law prohibiting the cultivation of genetically modified crops, the first in the country to make a demonstration. It is of great strategic significance and far-reaching impact on the maintenance of the brand of non GM soybean and the promotion of the development of soybean industry in Heilongjiang.
93 administration of development and construction of more than and 60 years, always adhere to the cultivation of non transgenic soybean, especially in recent years has been committed to the creation of the national non transgenic soybean core protected areas, through the promotion of six measures to promote the healthy development of non transgenic soybean industry.
Ensuring the development of non GMO soybean industry with soybean planting scale. 93 administration of the existing 4 million 20 thousand acres of arable land, grain and bean by two or three miscellaneous grain bean field, non genetically modified soybean planting scale has been stable in the year about 2 million acres, the average yield of 180~200 kg, the annual production capacity of 35~40 million tons, soybean commodity rate reached more than 90%.
Standardization of soybean production and development of non GMO soybean industry. Around the 93 administration of non GMO soybean industry development, accelerate the construction of standardized production system, organization of production strictly in accordance with standards, and strictly enforce the environmental conditions, the standard of green food production standards, the use of standard inputs. In order to effectively control the inflow and planting of genetically modified soybean seeds, 93 Management Bureau to take five measures: one is to strengthen the introduction of new soybean varieties, test management, following the introduction test of soybean varieties; the two is to strengthen the production management of soybean seeds, strictly the seed production license issued, hold the soybean seed production; three is to strengthen the quality management of agricultural production, supervision and inspection of live soybean varieties; the four is to seriously carry out agricultural production work with home guard investigations, soybean varieties seeding; five is to guide and seed business services through policy, improve the unified level of soybean.
Leading the development of non GMO soybean industry with soybean variety. 93 non regional administration of genetically modified soybean planting varieties are rich in natural resources, suitable for soybean varieties with more than 100, more than 90% belong to high yield, high protein, high fat varieties. 93 the administration organization, give full play to the soybean production mechanization and intensive advantages, to achieve a single 100% varieties, single species and single species harvest storage, and vigorously promote the soybean varieties planted soybean food raw materials go specialization road, and continuously meet the soybean food processing enterprises of special raw material demand.
To promote the development of non GMO soybean industry with the development of soybean industry. The 93 soybean has become a national geographical indications protection products, 93 administration based on high-quality resources to develop non GMO soybeans, soybean deep processing project, global have now formed the soybean oil, soybean meal, soybean meal, Yuba, leisure food products such as the non transgenic soybean industry pattern.
Promoting the development of non GMO soybean industry with soybean industry. In recent years, to further strengthen the administration of 93 non GMO soybean brand awareness, called green soybean China capital, fostering the growth of bean brand, through the implementation of the three action and strengthen the three one, the non transgenic soybean green food specific raw materials as the main direction of the brand, strengthen the brand operation and management. Through the promotion of Internet high standards of green (organic) planting demonstration base, realize the whole course of soybean quality traceability, and combined with the electricity supplier, the establishment of Internet marketing platform construction of soybean, soybean products sales platform sales, online and offline processing. In November 2016, the 93 administration was awarded the China soybean oil by the China Grain and oil institute.
Promoting the development of non GMO soybean industry with the market operation of soybean. 93 administration to the market demand, through the transfer and adjustment of structure, with high quality special varieties layout is focused on further subdivision of soybean specific farm products market, organize relevant units and personnel to run the market actively, seek order, and guide farmers to make full use of non GM soybean green food specific raw material advantages, vigorously develop the soybean planting. To solve the difficult problem of soybean market. At the same time, through the application of agricultural information technology demonstration, to promote the overall quality and safety traceability system construction of agricultural products, and gradually established a Internet + based on the new marketing model of soybean products, new formats.
93 the board will grasp the new revision of the Heilongjiang province food safety regulations in accordance with the law to ban the cultivation of genetically modified crops, non GMO soybean industry development more firm confidence and determination, to further strengthen the prevention and control measures, and constantly improve the protection ability, strive to build the non transgenic soybean core protection area.

Ban on genetically modified
Is the protection of the interests of farmers and the ecological environment
Management Office Deputy Director Wang Chunhai provincial agriculture planting industry
In May 1st this year, the implementation of the Heilongjiang provincial food safety regulations, the province’s administrative region according to law prohibit the cultivation of genetically modified corn, rice, soybeans and other food crops. The introduction of this Ordinance, I think it is very correct and timely. Heilongjiang’s national food security, food security, our province should be duty bound to grow non GMO food, should take the lead in the country to carry the banner of planting non GMO food, this is the responsibility of Heilongjiang, Longjiang is also the hope of agriculture.
Heilongjiang these years have been planting non GMO food, especially Heilongjiang green organic food in the market and the consumer awareness is more and more high, at this time, in accordance with the provisions are not allowed to grow GM food, is not only a kind of protection for the interests of farmers in our province, it is a kind of protection of agricultural ecological environment in Longjiang and Longjiang green food.
Our province year quarter production, crop growth period, the growth of Ji Guangzhao, when the number of feet long, the temperature difference between day and night, very conducive to the accumulation of dry matter of agricultural products, frozen winter leisure time, freezing thawing is beneficial to the recovery of soil aggregate structure, natural killing pests, fertilizer and pesticide input level is low, excellent ecological environment with the development of green food and organic food, planting non genetically modified grain has inherent excellent natural elements.
In the early 90s of last century, the province took the lead in the development of green food. More than and 20 years, our province has developed into the country’s largest green food production and processing base. The province’s green organic food certification area has reached 74 million mu, the effective use of the three one logo products accounted for 1\/10 of the country, the real green food accounts for 1\/5 of total food products in our province are non GMO, high quality. All rice is japonica rice, which accounts for 2\/3 of Japonica rice. Rice made Steamed Rice rich and mellow, glittering and translucent, soft sweet, widely recognized in the country. The market demand for non GMO soybean, especially edible high protein edible soybean.
The province is the largest province of grain production in China, in 2016 the province’s total grain output to achieve 121 billion 170 million pounds, continue to maintain the country’s first. Rice area and yield accounted for more than half of the northern 14 provinces (regions) of the production of rice, soybean area and output accounted for about 1\/3 of the country, edible high protein and high oil soybean area and output accounted for the country’s total of 50%. Because of good quality and non genetically modified food, sales market has been bullish.
At present, the formation of advanced technology and a wide range of applications, the integrity of the green food standard system in our province, through the implementation of from farm to table full quality control and the implementation of standardized production, three one product quality improvement, the qualified rate of consecutive years maintained at more than 99%. The province has 15 green organic food to obtain the title of well-known trademarks in China, there are nearly 200 green organic food to obtain the province’s famous trademarks, geographical indications of agricultural products reached 111, ranking first in the country. Green food has become a beautiful name card of modern agriculture development in Longjiang and a piece of a gilded signboard. (Heilongjiang Daily reporter Wu Lihong finishing)
Planting a non contiguous crops
Is the long-term development direction of agriculture in our province
Tang Qijun, President of Heilongjiang Soybean Association
Heilongjiang province food safety regulations not only by means of legal protection of Longjiang ecological development space, to ensure the effective functioning of black soil in cold area, at the same time will significantly promote the green food industry development of Longjiang, more from the food source of the level of protection of food safety consumer intake.
The implementation of the Regulations, will be a major positive for the green food industry in Heilongjiang, Longjiang can effectively highlight the regional advantages, while China’s Inner Mongolia, Jilin, Liaoning and other provinces also have black advantage, but the advantage is that other non GM agricultural province incomparable.
Transgenic soybean crushing soybean oil has become one of the irreplaceable varieties in non oil varieties of green agricultural products in our province, Heilongjiang has formed a fixed consumer groups, and has been approved and accepted by more groups. Non genetically modified soybean oil is becoming an important brand of green agricultural products in Heilongjiang, the Regulations issued more conducive to the protection of Heilongjiang non GMO brands, will promote more enterprises to enter the domestic soybean oil pressing process, continue to promote the domestic soybean industry development, the supply side to further deepen the reform of agriculture.
The implementation of the Regulations will be conducive to the non GMO processing enterprises in our province, formed the origin processing of the brand, promote the transformation ability of domestic soybean, for our province farmer increase production industry benign, rest assured, at ease let farmers pin.
From a global perspective, many countries have strict regulations on the protection of non GM crops. In October 4, 2015, the European Union announced that 19 Member States to prohibit the use of genetically modified crops in their territory or parts. All banned the cultivation of genetically modified crops in countries including Denmark, Malta, Slovenia, Luxemburg, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Holland and Poland. 2\/3 of EU countries choose to ban the cultivation of genetically modified crops, while Obama signed a bill to force the identification of genetically modified foods, Russia also banned the cultivation of genetically modified plants.
Heilongjiang province is the world’s only a few pieces of black land, non GM agricultural products in Heilongjiang province has been the brand advantage, has formed a production, processing and sales of non GM agricultural products industry chain, and a large number of exports to the EU, the United States, Japan and other developed countries. Therefore, the development of non GM food crops, food industry is the long-term development direction of agriculture in Heilongjiang province. The Regulations is not out of local protection, but a heritage of history, is a great contribution to the development of China’s agricultural industry, Heilongjiang Soybean Association strongly support the Heilongjiang food safety regulations, the newly revised .
