The results show that from 2010 to 2020 the quantity of farmland resources maintains balance; the minimum per capita farmland in Pingdinshan stays around the lower limit of per capita amount of farmland in China; the pressure of farmland is rather huge and the farmland protection is not so optimistic.

    China

    North China is the most important food basket of China, where the majority of wheat and corn are produced. Most crops grown in North China are irrigated, thus water security is food security. Since the 1980s, drying has been frequently observed, as shown by a reduction in precipitation, cutoff in riverflow, and shrinkage of lakes. This increase in drying cannot be explained by climate change alone. We propose that intensive land-use in this area in recent decades has had a significant impact.
