  • Zoning of sustainable Agricultural Development in China

    Co-Authors: Lisheng Hou, Huiping Lin, Wenzheng Liu
    Abstract:

    Abstract Based on relative advantage assessment, the zoning of sustainable Agricultural Development in China is exammed. An index system of sustainable Development is constructed, consisting of five supporting systems: (1) Agricultural resources, (2) Agricultural Development, (3) environment and ecosystem, (4) rural society, and (5) science, education and management. Included in the five supporting systems are 95 factors that are selected at the provincial level as basic indices. A method of assessing relative assets/debts is then used to calculate the net assets (i.e. relative advantage) for each provincial unit. This is done for both the five supporting systems and their total capability. The assessment results are then ranked, and the geographical patterns mapped. Based on the above assessment results, the whole country is divided into nine Agricultural Development regions (first-level), and 22 sub-regions (second-level). The first-level zones reflect each region’s direction for future sustainable Agricultural Development and management. The second-level zones reflect their level of Development, and whether or not each sub-region has reached the basic criteria of sustainable Agricultural Development. A zoning at provincial level for sustainable Agricultural Development in China is, thereby, established.

  • Sustainable Agricultural Development in China
    World Development, 1992
    Co-Authors: Han Chunru, Donald C. Taylor
    Abstract:

    Abstract An immense and increasingly well-to-do population has forced China to relent in strictly following the principles of organic farming that so strongly characterized its agriculture for centuries. The environmental and fossil-fuel energy problems accompanying China’s remarkable rural economic Development during the 1980s have caused an intensive reexamination of the country’s Agricultural Development policies. Emerging from this reexamination is the concept of “ecological” Agricultural Development involving the hybrid pursuit of “conventional” innovative and modern technologies from the West, and traditional organic practices from times past in China. This article portrays the background for and current status of Chinese Agricultural Development, characterizes and presents illustrative results from China’s strategy for ecological Agricultural Development, and highlights similarities and contrasts between ecological agriculture in China and sustainable agriculture in the West.
