3 20.1 Agricultural ecological environmental problems and its harm 20.1.1 Environmental problems of agricultural production Figure 20-1 Schematic diagram of common agricultural environmental problems and its harm

4 ( 1 ) Pesticide pollution  Migration, proliferation, residues, aggregation behavior will pollute the atmosphere, water and soil and is harmful to the organisms  The organisms accumulate gradually in vivo by the food chain,which make the top of the food chain organisms (including humans) with higher pesticide content in vivo  It makes ecosystems lose their balance, cause the system’s structure variation and function decline, and loss biodiversity.

5 Figure 20-2 The cycle of pesticide in the environment ( Li and Fleck, 1972 )

6 ① Organochlorine pesticides  Chlorinated aromatic derivatives,including BHC, Dieldrin,and DDT etc.  Stable structure,difficult to be oxidized, difficult to be dissociated,high toxic, easy to be dissociated in organic solvents, particularly in adipose tissue, and is high efficient, high toxic,and high pesticide residue  It accumulates in the organisms’ fat and liver by the food chain in a large number, harms the nerve center,casues liver enzyme changing, has pathological changes by violating the kidney, and the toxicity is difficult to degrade.  It has been forbidden to use since 1983, but the accumulation of pesticides in the past, will continue to play a role in quite a long time

7 ② O rganophosphorus pesticide  Most containing phosphorus organic compounds are phosphate or amides, such as DDVP, 1605, malathion and kitazine etc.  Highly toxic, easy to break down,the time of residue in the environment is short,not easy to accumulate in plants and animals,so it is often considered safe pesticides  But it’s high toxicity to humans and animals,it can inhibit the acetylcholine esterase, lipase and serine proteases aliphatic in the body to disrupt normal nerve function, causing disorders of biochemical processes in vivo with the symptoms as vomiting, diarrhea, fecal incontinence and blood pressure rising, eventually leading to death. Therefore, its environment toxicity still can not be ignored.

8 ③ Carbamate pesticides  With phenyl-N-alkyl ester’s structure, the same as organic phosphorus pesticides,they all have a role in anti-cholinesterase, the same in poisoning symptoms, but there are differences in the mechanism  It is easy to decompose in the natural environment, and can be metabolized rapidly in vivo. Usually the metabolites have more toxicity than their own, and are low-residue pesticides.  Some species have acute toxicity, such as furadan, its oral LD50 is 8-14mg/Kg,and it is a high toxic pesticide  This kind of pesticides may have the potential to cause carcinoma and teratogenesis.

9 ( 2 ) Fertilizer pollution  It play a considerable role in agricultural production, but if applying improperly it may be seriously cause the impact and harm to the soil, air, water, agricultural products, and the whole ecosystem.  Ecosystem pollution is a multi-media environment pollution and contaminants in various environment media have physical, chemical and biological processes.So the pollutants in multi- media environment demonstrate relevance, transferability and cycle. ( figure 20-3)

11 ① Nitrogen fertilizer pollution Figure 20-4 Nitrogen fertilizer pollution brings environmental problems

12 ② Phosphate fertilizer pollution  Phosphate fertilizer is not to be volatiled and weted.It has less effect to the atmospheric and ground water. However,it usually contains a variety of heavy metal and has potential impact to the soil and crops.  In our phosphate rock, the amount of its fluoride containing is basically proportional to the phosphate containing, resulting increasing the fluoride content in the soil  Phosphate fertilizer also contains trace amounts of natural radioactive elements. Especially in surrounding of the phosphate rock, there is a potential danger of radioactive pollution,and it is also polluting the environment in production process, transportation, and the trial process.

13 ③ Potassium fertilizer and microelement fertilizer pollution  With the development of agricultural production, potash fertilizer and trace fertilizer are used widely. But if it is used improperly,it may still harm to the environment  It may easy to destroy soil structure resulting in soil compaction,if improper use of potassium sulfate;It may accumulate the chloride ion in the soil, destroy soil structure, and reduce the quality and yield of some crops,if potassium chloride is used improperly.  Excessive trace elements could easily pollute the soil poisoning the crops, affecting the yield and quality

14 ( 3 ) Poultry excrement pollution  Large -scale livestock breeding base takes great pollution to the environment  According to the statistics,the amount of livestock manure is more than 2.5 billion ton in China in year 2000,and is much more than the total national industrial solid waster  Take a sample of the Hangzhou Bay,which has the most pollution in Yangtze River region. Its pollution is mainly caused by agricultural pollution,especially pesticides, fertilizers and poultry excrement pollution.  Research shows that poultry excrement is the main renson which causing the pollution indicators of Hangzhou Bay exceeding the standard seriously.(see table20-1) At the same time, the pollution proportion is trending to increase(see table 20-2).

19 ( 4 ) Biological pollution ① Biology invasion  The harm caused by biology invasion to the agricultural ecological environment and natural resources damage is irreversible,and it accelerates biodiversity loss and species extinction  Once the success alien species invasion, it will be very difficult to eradicate, and it will be expensive to control the damage.  The direct economy loss caused by biological invasion is 122.6 billion U.S. dollars annually in America.  The economy loss caused by several main invasive species is 54.7 billion Yuan per year,in China

20 ② Transgenic organism  As unnatural evolution products, it has been widely disputed for its potential impact in human health and ecological environment safety since the success of recombinant DNA technology.  Some experts believe that transgene crops or its wild relatives species can be changed to "super" weeds; may cause gene escape, resulting in "super virus"; danger to biological diversity; may adversely affect to human health

21 20.1.2 Agro-ecosystems damage ( 1 ) The reduction of biodiversity On one hand,agricultural production activities such as farming, the use of pesticide and fertilizer and plant and animal genetic improvement in agriculture improves the productivity,on the other hand it also impacts the biological diversity in agricultural ecosystems. Figure 20-5 shows the components and functions of biological diversity in agricultural ecosystems

22 Figure 20-5 Component and function of biodiversity in agro-ecosystems Notes : quoted from Chenxin,etc , 2002

23 ( 2 ) Soil degradation  It is a phenomena and process,which the soil environment quality and carrying ability decline rapidly caused by human’s improper development and utilization in natural environment.  In the early stage of reclamation soil, it only destroys the balance of the natural vegetation and fertility of the soil and the vegetation can also be restored by abandonment of cultivated land and the fertility can be restored by use organic manure.  But overuse of soil may cause the soil erosion, desertification, salinization, swampiness and soil fertility decline and other soil degradation phenomenon. Figure 20-6 is the classification of soil degradation

24 Figure 20-6 Classification pattern of soil degradation ( quoted from Li Tianjie , 1995 )

25 20.2 Agro - environmental management and practice 20.2.1 Agricultural environmental management system (1) Agricultural environmental management agency Our national first-level environment division is Environment Protection Energy department of agriculture ministry.Meanwhile Agriculture Ministry sets up Environment Protection Committee to organize and coordinate environmental protection work in various sectors of agriculture.The corresponding environment management institution has also been set up in the agricultural sector of each province, autonomous region and municipality.
