Developing high efficient eco-agriculture in the Three Gorges Area is an urgent task.It is not only the need of smooth resettling transmigrants,mitigating conflicts between man and nature,effective preventing ecological environment from deterioration,but also the need of ente-ring into the WTO,restructuring agriculture and constructing the Three Gorges ecological eco-nomic area.On the basis of analyzing the characteristics of different trades of agriculture such as farming,forestry,stock raising and fishery,this paper brings forward the overall development di-rection of eco-agriculture and dominant industries for each county in the Three Gorges Area.The whole development framework of the area is as follows:reducing the provision crops and expan-ding the economic crops,especially the high quality,refinement and characteristic produces;opti-mizing economic forestry,quickening the pace of constructing eco-forestry and developing spice-forestry by a big margin;developing grass for stockbreeding,leveling off the scale of pigs and enhancing the scale of goats or sheep;and taking eco-fishery development as a general direction.According to the above development perspectives,the Three Gorges Area will be turned into a great umbilical orange,preserved szechuan pickle,beast medicine and spice production base in China,a high quality fruit production belt along the Yangtze River,an important fresh water aquatic production zone in West China,and an influential Chinese traditional medicinal materials producing area.
