Litong District (simplified Chinese: 利通区; traditional Chinese: 利通區; pinyin: Lìtōng Qū; Wade–Giles: Li-t’ung Ch’ü) is a District of the city of Wuzhong in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China. It has a total area of 1,112 square kilometres (429 sq mi), and a population of approximately 350,000 people (2003).
Litong District includes Wuzhong's main urban area, and therefore is usually not marked separately on less-detailed maps, which simply mark the location as "Wuzhong".
Situated on the bank of the Yellow River, Litong District is well known for its agricultural products. Rice paddy products are the most famous. Beginning in 1998, the district's irrigation office and Hohai University teamed up to research the applications of the high-yielding irrigation techniques employed in the district's rice paddies. The district's postal code is 751100.
