Abstract: The purpose of this research is to explore influencing mechanism of different rural land consolidation (RLC) projects on the cultivated land production value and ecological value based on the theories of cultivated land production value and ecological value and its evaluation method. Using the survey data of some farmers in the cities of Tianmen and Qianjiang of Hubei province, the DID model and OLS model are employed to conduct this research. The results show that: (1) The RLC projects have brought great promotion effect on the production value of cultivated land. Moreover, the promotion effect of the new agricultural management subject leading mode is better than that of the government leading mode. (2) Although there is no significant difference in the improvement effect on the ecological value of cultivated land between the two modes of rural land consolidation, the RLC projects have notable positive effect on the ecological value of cultivated land. (3) The improvement of cultivated land production value helps to increase the ecological value of cultivated land. In conclusion, it is suggested that we not only need to increase investment in the rural land comprehensive consolidation, but also should highlight ecological consolidation in the rural land comprehensive consolidation, and innovate the implementation mode of rural land consolidation.
