Rediscovering China 2011-06-04 Rural development of Ningxia

06-04-2011 06:42 BJT

 

Ningxia is a small automonous province in north western China, nestled between Shaanxia and Gansu and hanging below Inner Mongolia. The Yellow river cuts through the province providing much needed irrigation to an otherwise dry, dusty land.

Ningxia is an important agricultural player in China. There are about 4 million farmers and over 19 million acres of cultivated land where rice, wheat, corn and all kinds of fruits, especially wolfberries are grown. As you wander through the farmlands you could tell that the environment was perfect for farming not just because it was so lush but because the air was so clean and soft. There is almost no pollution and at night you can actually see a few stars. Coming from Beijing, this is quite something!
