Let me remind the western media, it is trump forced us to hoard food through trade negotiations. Don't forget that the most important condition for the USA in trade negotiations is to ask China to greatly increase grain imports. You see, we fulfilled our promise.
I have did a calculation if China can be self sufficient on soy. The answer lies in diverting Yangtze and yaluzangbo to Xinjiang and inner Mongolia . Create farm area of whole Vietnam.
China's soybean problem is not planting, China has the ability to restore soybean production in a short time. The important problem is that the four major international grain traders controlled most of China's edible oil processing enterprises in 2003. Now most of China's edible oil enterprises have foreign capital, they have the ability to influence the acquisition of soybeans.
In recent years, the Chinese govt is trying to regain control of the edible oil processing industry. We need time.

As a engineer, I am very interested in calculating China food security and did a lot of calculations from the raw data I can get. More big dams is needed in Yellow river so that water are not wasted into the sea.

Inner Mongolia desert can plant more if there is more water ration.

A lot of Yunnan terrace rice plantation should be converted to Rubber. It preserve the soil better.

Rubber is another choke for China. Synthetic Rubber performance is poor compared to latex.

Xinjiang is incredibly productive even if it is a desert due to abundant sunlight. Need water from Brahmaputera.

The area in Yellow is incredibly suitable for farming and good place to stay if water can be diverted from Brahmaputra. Will be one of world most productive region in good as well as good health tourism resort.

Temperature is like Paris. Sunlight abundant. Only problem is no water.

Look at Hotan temperature. Isnt that amazing, it is like Paris.

There needs to be several great aqueducts that can move water from the Tibetan plateau to the Taklamakan desert and make that place bloom with life.

Since the founding of PRC, there is no flood in Yellow River, other than Banqiao Dam incident. The reason is PRC mobilizes people to use up all excess Yellow River water in the Hetao desert, to plant food.

Now problem of Yellow River is not flooding but drying up 黄河断流.

One problem about inner Mongolia is temperature is a bit low. And this is not so productive. You get below zero for some months. Below is Baotou temperature

China is the largest producer of wheat, rice, fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, but the surplus will be stored. India tries to export as much as possible, such as rice.

But India will cry us a river if we do so

Chinese engineers plan 1,000km tunnel to make Xinjiang desert bloom

红旗河 which diverts Tibet water to Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia, the cost would be around $1 trillion

Look at this amazing canal trajectory. Initially I laugh why we need to make such detour. Later I use Google Earth and try construct one myself and realized I get the same trajectory. Then I realize this canal is possible.

We lay down the engineering difficulties and why engineers come out such route

1. The canal must have a negative gradient and water should flow without a pump (we do not want a 3 gorge dam in reverse)
2. Tunnel digging should be minimized (I realized the maximum tunnel length is about 150km )

According to your plan, many people will die in India and Bangladesh. Well, even if we don't care about India, there's no reason why we don't care about Bangladesh.
