DUBLIN, Ireland--(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c88110) has announced the
addition of China Corn & Corn Seed Industry Report, 2007-2008 to their
offering.

   It was estimated by China National Grain and Oils Information
Centre in February, 2008 that China's cultivated areas of corn were
about 28.05 million hectares in 2007, up 4% against the previous year,
or increasing by 1.08 million hectares. The cultivated areas of spring
corn in Northeast China and summer corn in North China both increased,
due to a rise in profit of corn planting. According to the estimation,
China's corn output is expected to reach 148 million tons in the
period of October, 2007 to September, 2008, up 3% against 2006, or an
addition of 2.51 million tons.

   China's corn consumption mainly covers the five aspects of food,
feed, industrial consumption, seed industry and export. It was
predicted that China's domestic consumption in the period of October,
2007 to September, 2008 will total 146 million tons, among which, the
feed and industrial consumption will account for 90% of the total.
According to the Eleventh Five-Year Plan (2006-2010): the proportion
of industrial consumption should not surpass 26% of the total and the
feed consumption should maintain an annual growth rate of around 4.7%
during the period of 2006-2010. It was predicted that China's
industrial consumption of corn in the period of October, 2007 to
September, 2008 won't have a big increase, however, the demand of feed
industry for corn is expected to have a further rise, due to the
recovery of feed industry in the second half of 2007.

   Based on the authoritative and abundant information from the
National Bureau of Statistics, the China National Grain and Oils
Information Centre and the General Administration of Customs of China,
this report makes an in-depth study on the current situation, market
