Study Notes

  • North China is located east of the Greater Khingan Range, Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and south of the Inner Mongolia Plateau, north of the Qinling Mountains-Huai River, and east of the Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea.
  • The terrain in North China is mainly composed of plains and plateaus, such as the Northeast Plain and the North China Plain in the east and the Loess Plateau in the west.
  • North China spans the temperate and warm temperate zones, with most areas having a temperate monsoon climate characterized by cold winters and hot summers, with unevenly distributed precipitation mainly concentrated in the summer.
  • The Northeast Plain has fertile black soil, while the Loess Plateau is covered by deep loess soil, with the Yellow River and the Hai River carrying large amounts of sediment to form the wide North China Plain.
  • North China is an important dryland agriculture area, with large areas of fertile soil and concentrated arable land, mainly planting crops such as wheat, corn, and sorghum, as well as economic crops such as sugar beets, cotton, and soybeans.
  • The North China Plain and the Loess Plateau have low precipitation, concentrated in the summer, and insufficient irrigation water sources, leading to severe spring droughts.
  • To alleviate the shortage of freshwater resources, especially in the Beijing-Tianjin region, the government has implemented cross-basin water transfer measures such as the South-to-North Water Diversion Project.
  • Developing water-saving agriculture is the key to the sustainable development of agriculture in North China in the long run.
