Cartographic support for assessing the suitability of land for agricultural production in the PRC's Capital Region

This article examines the role of meteorological factors in the formation of adverse conditions for agricultural development in the capital region of the People's Republic of China (PRC). This area is one of the most densely populated, and the problem of food supply is very acute. The suitability of the area for agricultural activities not only depends on hydrometeorological conditions, but also on the frequency of meteorological disasters. Such disasters include droughts, flooding of the territory due to intensive precipitation and extremely high air temperatures. In this work, it has been made an attempt to analyse the frequency of adverse events of meteorological phenomena and their distribution over the territory of the capital region. Electronic maps of frequency of both individual disasters and an integral map were created, which allowed dividing the territory into 4 categories of total adverse hydrometeorological factors for the development of agricultural production. This study can be as an additional basis for the planning and development of various sectors of agricultural production and for the implementation of measures to reduce the impact of meteorological disasters on agriculture. © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2021.
