Since the reform and opening-up, economy of mountain areas in China has realized considerable development. However, due to such factors as terrain, traffic, and individual differences, compared with plain and coastal areas, mountain areas still lag far behind. In recent years, informationization construction of China develops rapidly, but it nearly stagnates in mountain rural areas. Information has become an essential factor restricting economic development of rural areas. Based on the survey of current information demand of farmers carried out in Pingshan County in Hebei Province in 2010, this study came up with relevant recommendations, in order to speed up development of rural economic in mountain areas, narrow the regional gap, improve living condition of farmers in mountain areas, and increase income level of farmers in mountain areas.
