The climate warming and its impacts on agricultural production and food security have raised great public concerns in China. To mitigate the negative impact of climate change on agriculture, maintain crop production levels, and even identify opportunities in agricultural intensification, researchers have put great efforts to evaluate changes in agro-climatic resources and develop adaptation measures across different cropping zones of China under climate change. This chapter reviews the available literature on climate change impacts and adaptations in agriculture in China. The insights derived from this review are expected to be useful for decision-makers of the national government in the fields covering agricultural adaptation and food security.
