According to the Chinese government, constant rains in recent weeks have delayed wheat planting in main production regions in China.
China indeed, had completed only 26% of winter wheat planting across the nation by Oct. 19, slower by 27 percentage points than normal years.
Consequentially, the Agriculture Ministry will take “extraordinary measures” to tackle the “unfavourable impact and austere challenges” the rains have posed for harvest and planting.
Late planting would affect growth, while too much moisture in the land would cause more diseases for the crop.
The rains have also delayed harvest of autumn grains, which mainly include corn, soybeans and middle-late season rice, by 4 percentage points compared with normal years. 
Than, costs pushed up.
