China, with a fifth of the world’s population, has only 7 percent of the planet’s arable land…. They have done agribusiness deals in more than 40 countries since 2005, with Australia, New Zealand and the U.S. attracting the highest number of major investments, the data show.

State-owned Cofco Corp., China’s largest food company, has made investments totaling $1.85 billion in the U.S., Australia, Brazil and the Netherlands since 2008.

China overtook the U.S. in 2011 as the world’s largest importer of agricultural products and purchased $112.5 billion of goods in 2012, up from $11.7 billion in 2001.
