Paddy rice is the major grain crop in China, grown mainly in the Yangtze River valley and southern China, and on the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau. Its output accounts for two-fifths of the total grain. Today, China remains much the same, as every aspect of the country is heavily controlled by its government. Government of China China's government is a communist state with a unicameral legislative branch called the National People's Congress that is made up of 2, members from the municipal, regional, and provincial : Amanda Briney.
China has great physical eastern plains and southern coasts of the country consist of fertile lowlands and foothills. They are the location of most of China's agricultural output and human population. The southern areas of the country (South of the Yangtze River) consist of hilly and mountainous west and north of the country are dominated by sunken basins (such as the Area: Ranked 3rd/4th.

Despite China's obvious and growing importance on the world stage, it is often and easily misunderstood. Indeed, there are many Chinas, as this comprehensive survey of contemporary China vividly illustrates. Offering the first sustained geography of the reform era, the authors trace the changes occurring in this great and ancient nation across.
A general and comparative geography of Greece is followed by an account of its climate. In most of the agricultural regions of the United States the seasonal variation in rainfall is just the reverse of that of Greece, the only region of similar climatic conditions-dry, clear summers and wet winters-being the Pacific West Coast and more particularly by: 3.
Forest podzols predominate, but the soil types of a given region or locality vary greatly. Clay soils are the most fertile, followed by sedge peats; gravel and sandy soils are cultivated only slightly.
Most cultivated fields require drainage. Heavy application of animal manure and complete commercial fertilizers, liming of all soils, especially the most acid ones, application of clay and sand Cited by: 2. Climate change scenarios are assessed relative to the current distribution of agro-climatic regions and farming systems.
Notwithstanding the yield enhancing effects of warming and elevated CO 2 levels, expected moisture deficits and uncertain changes in the timing and frequency of critical conditions indicate that there are serious threats to Cited by: Get this from a library.

It is particularly suited to courses on China, its geography and development : Paperback. Introduction. Climate change and its impacts on agriculture have been observed across the world during the last 50 years ().The Northeast Farming Region of China (NFR) is one of the areas that are most susceptible to climate in China (Piao et al., ), which is also one of the most important grain production regions of China (Yin et al., c), where maize, rice and soybean are the three Cited by: Using terrestrial observations of shelter-height air temperature and shipboard measurements, a global climatology of mean monthly surface air temperature has been compiled.
Data were obtained from ten sources, screened for coding errors, and redundant station records were removed. The combined data base consists of 17 independent terrestrial station records and 6 Cited by: Report for Development and Resources Corporation consultant to Imperial Government of Iran Khuzestan Water and Power Authority.

China - China - Agriculture, forestry, and fishing: As a result of topographic and climatic features, the area suitable for cultivation is small: only about 10 percent of China’s total land area. Of this, slightly more than half is unirrigated, and the remainder is divided roughly equally between paddy fields and irrigated areas; good progress has been made in improving water conservancy.
