Heilongjiang Province is located in China's northeast, at its highest latitude. Apart from its cold and long winter, it is also well known for its fertile black soil, making it one of the most crucial grain-producing areas in the country.

From September to October every year, the province gradually begins the autumn harvest from south to north. Corn, rice and soybeans are the major crops harvested. The rice growing in Wuchang County and the soybean planted in Suihua City enjoy a stellar reputation in domestic and international markets.

The degree of agricultural mechanization in Heilongjiang has taken the lead among China's provinces. During the harvest season, one can see a variety of machinery across the boundless and flat terrain, creating a spectacular autumnal landscape.
