The black soil in northeast China is considered one of the most fertile soils in China. Consequently, the black soil region has become one of the most important regions for cereal grain production in China. Agriculture has developed rapidly since the early part of the nineteenth century. To date, approximately 70 percent of total land in the area is cultivated. Even though the agricultural production in this region is increasing continuously, some soil fertility quality problems have become… Expand
Soil loss and conservation in the black soil region of Northeast China: a retrospective study.
Abstract The black soil region in Northeast China is an important region for cereal grain production in the country. However, several decades of overexploitation and unsustainable land use practicesExpand

The Effect of Fulvic Acids Derived from Different Materials on Changing Properties of Albic Black Soil in the Northeast Plain of China
Empirical evidence is provided that addition of fulvic acid from MDLF and PDLF had more positive effects on soil properties and plant growth than fulvic acids from PDSF, and this investigation suggests that application of ful Vic acid in liquid form can improve nutrient availability and affect other important chemical, biological, and physical properties of soils.
