As expected, the highest percentages
of cultivated land are reported from the North China Plain. Shanxi,
Jilin, Liaoning, Guizhou, Hubei, and Heilongjiang have also a
relatively high percentage of cultivated land. The reason why Sichuan
has a lower than average percentage of cultivated land is the
relatively high percentage of mountains and grasslands in some parts
of the province, which are unsuitable for cultivation.
