Agriculture Degree Program in China - Agricultural Resources and Environment

1. Introduction

Agricultural Resources and Environment is the general name of various elements that can meet the needs of agricultural production in nature, and it is the important material basis for the existence and development of agricultural production. Agricultural resources are the general name of agricultural natural resources and agricultural economic resources. Natural environment factors, such as land resources, water resources, climate resources and biological resources, which can be used in agricultural natural resources, such as land resources, water resources, climate resources and biological resources. Agricultural economic resources is to directly or indirectly on agricultural production to play the role of social and economic factors and social production, like the agricultural population and labor force to quantity and quality, agricultural technology and equipment, including transportation, communication, culture, education and health of agricultural infrastructure. The agricultural environment is the sum of all the elements in the environment, which is the main body of the agricultural production. Mainly including farmland, forest, grassland, irrigation water, air, light, heat and fertilizer applied to the field (including fertilizer), pesticides and agricultural machinery and so on.

2. Basic Characteristics of Agricultural Natural Resources

Integrity, regional, dynamic balance, renewable and reproducibility, limited amount and unlimited potential

3. Dynamic Detection of Agricultural Resources

Dynamic detection of agricultural resources refers to the location and timing examination of the dynamic changes of the quantity, quality and time and space distribution of agricultural resources. The contents of the dynamic detection of agricultural resources generally include three aspects: agricultural natural resources, agricultural social economic resources and agricultural ecological environment.

4. Evaluation of Agricultural Resources

Evaluation of agricultural resources is based on the needs of agricultural development and social and economic activities, and comprehensive analysis and evaluation of the quality, suitability, economic value, development and utilization of agricultural resources. The investigation of agricultural resources is the basis of evaluation.

The basic principles of evaluation of agricultural resources are: the principle of giving play to resource advantage; the principle of eco economic balance and sustainable utilization of resources; the principle of system analysis, comprehensive evaluation

5. Protection of Agricultural Resources

Protection of agricultural resources refers to using legal, economic, administrative and scientific and technological means to coordinate the relationship between development of rural economy and agricultural natural resources utilization, to implement supervision and management to the behaviors of destruction and abuse of agricultural natural resources. Agricultural natural resources can be divided into three categories: non renewable resources, renewable resources, inexhaustible resources. The protection of agricultural resources mainly include: protection of land resources, protection of grassland resources, protection of forest resources, protection of wildlife resources, protection of wild plant resources, protection of mineral resources, etc.

6. Agricultural Environmental Pollution

Agricultural environmental pollution is mainly manifested in: industrial, urban and township enterprises pollution; agricultural chemical material pollution; pollution of livestock and poultry manure.

7. Agricultural Environmental Protection

Agricultural environmental protection is the use of legal, economic, technical means, so that the quality of agricultural environmental and ecological status can maintain a good state, to prevent pollution and ecological damage. Agricultural environment is an important part of the overall environment, including land, forest, grassland, water resources, air, etc., with a wide range, the overall, regional characteristics, is the basic material conditions of agriculture.

8. Agricultural Environmental Monitoring

Agricultural environmental monitoring refers to discontinuously or continuously examining the concentration of pollutants in the agricultural environment, observe and analyze the influence of the change of agricultural environment.
