Agriculture near Bohai Sea, China - November 27th, 2008

A great deal of farmland near the coast of the Bohai Sea and along the Yellow River in northeastern China can be seen in this radar (ASAR) image.

The land in the eastern half of China is used greatly for agriculture, whereas the land of the western half is hardly cultivated.

Wheat tends to predominate in northeastern crops, whereas rice usually predominates in southeastern crops.

The area visible in our image, part of the North China Plain, is used for growing crops such as wheat, sorghum and corn.
