In China, agriculture, health, education, and welfare are intricately woven as part of the developmental plan. This paper focuses on the role of agriculture in social and economic development and its relationship to health programs, the strategy of food rationing and the “private plot” to improve nutrition and health, and the balance of food and population in the Chinese society.
