Yanggu County (simplified Chinese: 阳谷县; traditional Chinese: 陽穀縣; pinyin: Yánggǔ Xiàn) is a county of western Shandong province, People's Republic of China, bordering the narrow strip of Henan province to the south. It is administered by Liaocheng City.

The population was 748,818 in 1999.[1]


In December 2010, an explosion caused by careless handling of chemicals ripped through a pesticide factory, raising pollution fears that resulted in authorities evacuating 8,000 residents from nearby villages. The explosion occurred in the factory of Shandong Yanggu Zhongshi Pharmaceutical Co. One person broke his leg while six others suffered slight injuries in the blast, said Zhou Qing, head of the emergency response office of Yanggu County; About 30 workers on the assembly line fled after smelling something unusual, Zhou said.
