China provincial governors are to be given key roles in ensuring food security, China's cabinet said.

The governors must make sure the amount and quality of farmland remains stable, improve pollution control to ensure grain quality, ensure the authenticity of grain reserve data and protect farmers, the statement said.

A team comprised of government agencies including the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Agriculture and the State Administration of Grain will assess the performance of the provincial governors. Those governors will be held accountable if they "fail to perform their duties and make major errors with serious effects," according to the statement.

China's food safety problems are aggravated by water and soil pollution. Food security is now more urgent with the end of the one-child policy and rapid industrialization encroaching on farmland.
