Chinese present Agriculture is less efficient, less productive than the present American large farm Agriculture.
This can explain the reason that Chinese government is learning from the way of American Agricultural production now - the reform of intensive Agriculture in each small plot.
Chinese can nearly feed themselves not by more production but by less consumption compare with American.

(though Chinese need to get food from net import (net import = import - export) from a few years ago.

Soya bean production is only about 0.8t per hectare!

I'm sorry, but please double check your number "0.8t per hectare!"

here I copy some figures from news reports for your reference.

local norm of 3.5 tons per acre in some area.
the yield at 1.5 ~ 2 tons per hectare.
1.74 tons pre hectare in 2002
a record average yield of 2.96 metric tons per hectare.
