Agricultural potential productivity and population support capability of the Loess Plateau


Chinese Journal of Arid Land Research 3(1): 13-25
Agricultural potential productivity and population support capability of the Loess Plateau
The meteorological and hydrological conditions influencing crop production in the Loess Plateau of central northern China are mapped. The total annual radiation value ranges from 450 in the south to 650 kJ/cmsuperscript 2 in the north of the plateau, whilst photosynthetic potential is 330 to 500 kg/ha, also decreasing from north to south.
