China soy region to increase acreage under govt order

BEIJING, June 6 (Reuters) -

* China’s Henan province will increase soybean acreage by 500,000 mu (33,333 hectares) this year under a government order, the local Henan Daily newspaper reported on Wednesday.

* China is taking extra efforts to increase its soybean output this year as a trade dispute with the United States threatens to curb imports from its second biggest supplier.

* The soybean acreage in Henan in 2017 was estimated at 370,000 hectares, about 5 percent of the nation’s total at 7.78 million hectares. (Reporting by Hallie Gu and Josephine Mason; editing by Richard Pullin)
