man steers his boat along partly frozen Songhua River in Harbin
A man steers his boat along the partly frozen Songhua River in the northern Chinese city of Harbin, Heilongjiang Province April 4, 2008. Drought parching parts of northern China will continue this month and water should be set aside for drinking and farming, China's weather administration said last week. In several regions, including Heilongjiang Province, which is China's largest supplier of commodity grains including corn, soybean, rice and wheat, only 6.2 mm (0.2441 inch) of rain has fallen so far this year, a 57-year low, an administration spokeswoman said. Some 6 million hectares (14.8 million acres) of arable land in Heilongjiang province in the northeast, or 51 percent of the province's total planted area, could face severe drought during the spring ploughing season, Xinhua quoted local agricultural authorities as saying.
