Yangling is one of important birthplace of Chinese farming civilization. As early as 4000 years ago, Houji, the first-ranking official in charge of agriculture in the Chinese history, taught people how to grow crops here. In 1934, the national Northwest College of Agriculture and Forestry (predecessor of the current Northwest A&F University) was founded here by senior Kuomingtang official Yu Youren and compatriot General Yang Hucheng, so Yangling became a place of origin for modern higher agricultural education of Northwest China. In the following decades, Yangling has developed into a famed ‘Agro-science’ city, with more than 70 disciplines and specialties in the fields of agriculture, forestry and water resources, and a total of about 5000 research members.
