Abstract: The technical systems of Chinese ecoagriculture mainly include (a) The integrated technique to improve agricultural environment; (b) The technique to protect and enhance agricultural resources; (c)The technique for the comprehensive use of small watersheds;(d)The vertical arrangement technique concerning plant growth, animal husbandry and fishery;(e)The integrated technique in using farmyard resources; (f) The technique for the use of renewable energy resources; (g)The technique for the use of agricultural by-products; and (h)The integrated technique for control. These technical systems inherit the quintessence or traditional Chinese agriculture. They make good use of the resources and also carefully protect the resources. They link different components of agriculture together effectively. In this paper some successful examples using those technical systems in China are introduced.Chinese ecoagriculture will help China to put the 1991 Den Bosch Declaration on Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development and the 1 993" Agenda 21" of the World's Conference on Environment and Development action.
