Short summary
We established a preliminary theoretical methodology and an operational approach for assessing drought risk of maize based on a physical vulnerability curve using the EPIC model to further understand the hazard mechanisms of drought. Based on the assumption that all maize was exposed to drought hazard, the risk assessment of agricultural drought of the farming–pastoral ecotone in Northern China was conducted from the drought hazard index and physical vulnerability curve.
