Based on the climate and cropping systems, rice production in China has been classified into six agroecological zones and 15 subzones (China National Rice Research Institute 1988). 4 Rice-Based Cropping Systems Southern China is the main rice production area in China, accounting for 94 % of national rice planting area and 88 % of national rice production (Ma et al. 2013). The rice-based cropping systems in China are diverse due to a diversity in agroclimatic zones. There are three major rice cropping patterns in China: single rice cropping per year, annual rice-upland crop rotations, and double rice cropping annually.
