Abstract
Health and sustainability of agricultural ecosystems in Northeast China have been challenged by over-utilization and inappropriate management. A set of protective measures were developed and applied in Heilongjiang, China, to enhance the farmland sustainability while increasing or maintaining the needed productivity. These measures included no-till farming, return of agricultural residuals, high-efficiency irrigation, integrative pest management, crop rotation, and precision farming with remote sensing and GIS. Equipment and technologies were developed to implement the protective measures. Application of these technologies in the past several years has produced a significant improvement in both ecological and economical aspects. Potential application of such protective measures in other regions of China was also discussed.
