A Study of Agricultural Technology Extension and Synchronous Development of Agricultural Modernization, Urbanization and Industrialization in China

Through the study of relationship between agricultural technology extension and the development of agricultural modernization, urbanization and industrialization, it is found that agricultural technology extension is an important means to achieve synchronous development of agricultural modernization, urbanization and industrialization. Based on the sample data in China during 1978—2011, we perform the empirical analysis using VAR model and cointegration analysis and impulse response methods. The results show that there is a long-term positive equilibrium relationship between agricultural technology extension and the development of agricultural modernization, urbanization and industrialization, and agricultural technology extension plays a role in promoting agricultural modernization, urbanization and industrialization to varying degrees. Finally, it is concluded that there is a need to establish efficient agricultural technology extension mechanism and diversified agricultural technology extension investment mechanism to make agricultural technology extension better promote China's agricultural modernization, urbanization and industrialization.
