Current situation and issues of recycling-based agricultural production system in upland farming areas of Northern China

2013-09-05

JIRCAS is carrying a research project titled Design and evaluation of a recycling-based agricultural production system in upland farming areas of Northern China. The project will clarify the current situation and the future perspectives of the environmental impacts according to the change in the type of agricultural production in upland farming areas of northern China. Basic technologies that will be the core of a recycling-based agricultural production system of organic matter application technologies in intensive cereal farming areas, and high-value-added cropping technologies in the disadvantaged agricultural livestock regions. Moreover, the supporting policy system for standard conformity assessment will be discussed thoroughly, and measures/schemes for the expansion of a recycling-based agricultural production system will be presented.

This year is the third year for the project. The subject of prospect of mid/long-term production and evaluation of environmental load will be finished in this year, and subject of analysis and evaluation of expansion and establishment of recycling-based agricultural production system has started this April. The workshop will show some of our research results.
