The Plain comprises the lower reaches of the Huang (Yellow), Huai and Hai River Basins which drain into the Bo Hai Sea across a broad alluvial plain. The plain is estimated to have some , km2 of arable land of which 56% is irrigated. Groundwater development in the Plain started in the mids with the advent of major irrigation projects. policy briefings • photos • videos • in focus; policies. latest releases • policy watch • infographics; services. investment • doing business • visit china • study in china • work in china • live in china; archive. white paper • statistics • state council gazette • laws & regulations • china abc.

In the lower reaches of the Yangtze, the Pearl River Delta, and the Chengdu Plain a dense network of waterways has been developed. In the North China Plain and the Northeast Plain most of the rivers have a linear flow, and tributaries are few and unconnected. In the inland drainage area there are very few rivers because of scanty precipitation. (also Great Lowlands of China), one of the largest plains in Eastern Asia, in China. It is washed by the Yellow Sea in the east and bounded by the Yen mountains in the north; the Taihang range in the west, whose eastern slopes break up into steep terraces up to 1, m high along the side of the plain; and the Tongbai and Dabie ranges in the southwest.

Chinas per capita endowment of arable land is low and water scarcity is of particular concern. Not only is Chinas endowment of water resources extremely low, but it is also badly distributed, with the North China Plain having one of the lowest per capita endowments in the world. Spring peanut is a valuable alternative crop to mitigate water scarcity caused by excessive water use in conventional cropping systems in the North China Plain (NCP).

In the present study, we evaluated the capability of the Agricultural Policy Environmental eXtender (APEX) model to predict spring peanut response to sowing dates and seeding rates in order to optimize sowing dates, seeding rates, and Cited by: 1.

The North China Plain (NCP) is the largest agricultural production area in China. The extensive use of groundwater for irrigation agriculture under variable climatic conditions has resulted in the rapid decline of the groundwater table especially in areas north of the Yellow River, leading to hydrological imbalance and unsustainable.

The Yellow is one of the world’s most intensively exploited river systems, being home to some million people in the semi-arid North China Plain. PM data from major cities in the southern North China Plain during – were comprehensively analyzed relative to variation features, meteorology effects, and regional transport contributions.
