Could someone help me understand how these yields in China are achieved? They have been already significantly above the "world average", but on top they seem to really jump in the 60/70's which is right after the disastrous Great Famine. It also seems rather odd when you know how Chinese farming goes, that isn't large industrialized farming but small scale farming as everyone has a single mu of ground what they exploit.
