The Kubuqi, China's seventh largest desert, is turning into a land of green - after years of effort and innovation using desertification control methods.Located to the north of the ridge of the Ordos plateau, the Kubuqi desert covers an area of 186 million hectares.It had been infamous once for being a seemingly lifeless dust bowl. After 28 years of controlling the desertification, as well as seeding and planting, now a quarter of the former wasteland has become home to thriving trees and undergrowth.
