    Various attempts have been made to divide China into regions of agricultural significance. Both the divisions of Nyhus and Cressey are not very satisfatory. According to my recent study, China may be divided into nine greater agricultural regions which are quite similar to the climatic regions of Co-ching Chu.

    In the Sino-Swedish Expedition (1929-1933) and the Highway Expedition of Chinese Ministry of Railways (1933-1935) both under the leadership of Dr. Sven Hedin, the writer had the chance to visit this region twice, once with Dr. Nils G. Horner from Tunghwang westwards by camels and the other with Dr. Hedin eastwards from Karakum by canoes.The journey from east was quite an adventurous one by travelling over the salt crust of the ancient Lop sea-bed in 14(1/2) days without water or grazing. Dr. Horner and the writer collaborated in making Topographical, Geographical and Geological surveys of the present Lop nor and its delta regions, nearly 4 months without meeting any human beings.
