Optimizing eco-economic structure in the northwest gully loess plateau of china
Author : Zhou Zhenmin, W. Tiehu, W. Liyan
It is because of fragile eco-environment, unreasonable farming pattern, poor production management, rapid growth of population, large-scale natural forest and grassland reclamation, and grassland overgrazing, the productivity of the loess plateau in the northwest part of China was declined continuously, which caused the gully loess plateau eco-environment to be even deteriorated. The sandstorm occurs frequently. A series of ecological questions seriously restricted the sustainable development of agricultural economy. In recent years, the country paid great attention to the eco-environment of gully loess plateau, and obtained the preliminary effect. But the eco-economic structure of the farming and forestry is still unreasonable. Therefore, it is an urgent problem for us to adjust the farming and forestry economic structure, to restore the damaged eco-environment, to build a beautiful western area, to create the coordinated ecological environment, to speed up the development of the local agricultural economy and augment the farmer's income.
