Based on list analysis method, the COD, TN and TP in agriculture in 28 provinces in China from 1995 to 2010 were evaluated and compared. By dint of directional distance function, the economics mechanism to reduce carbon emission was discussed. The reduction efficiency and potential of three kinds of pollutants were estimated.
