Abstract: The Yellow River Delta is one of the three biggest deltas in China. Its area is about 5930 km2 and it has rich land resources.In the first place, this paper divides the land into five kinds and nineteen sub-kinds. Then it divides the land quality into eight grades and thirteen classes by applying the method of two-stage fuzzy synthetical judgement. It has been found that the land mainly suitable for agriculture makes up 28.83%, that mainly suitable for animal husbandry makes up 34.44%. and that mainly suitable to fishery makes up 27.98%.At last, the method of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is used to analyse and inquire into the countermeasure of rational exploitation and utilization of the land resources. The authors lay the emphasis on abiding by the general principle that the economic benefit is subordinate to the social and ecological benefits. Under this premise, this paper puts for-word six exploitive tactics headed by pledging the land to be used in industry and mine, and twenty exploitive measures headed by diverting the Yellow River water and using its sediment to improve the saline-alkali land.

Key words: the Yellow River Delta, land resources, exploitive countermeasure, the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)
