The third secession of the 17th conference of the CPC issued a landmark policy that allowed farmers to transfer their land use reasonably, which provided new idea and space for the development of grassland husbandry. The meaning, form and some advices of grassland resources circulation were analyzed according to the status of transferring land use in Nan Nigou Village, Zhua Xixiulong Township, Tianzhu Tibetan Autonomous County, Gansu Province. The main types of grassland circulation in Nan Nigou village were grassland rent, transference of contracted responsible land, union operation, agent grazing, change grassland, etc. The grassland resources circulation became slow because of herders quality, environment and policy. Some suggestions were provided at aspects of establishing ecological compensation mechanism, widening employment channel, accelerating improved variety breeding and veterinary service system construction, establishing the support system of difficult families in pastoral area, and supporting leading grassland enterprises.
Control effect and application prospect of biological technology on prairie locust

[Abstract](1276) [PDF 0KB](388)
Application prospects of locust control by new biological technology such as Nosema locustae, Metarhizium anisopliae, Azadirachtin were introduced in this paper. N.locustae is a kind of single cell eukaryotic protozoan which parasitizes on locust or other orthoptera insects. After 45days of the application, the infection rate was 50.6%, decreasing rate of locust was 73.4%. M.anisopliae is a kind of pathogenic fungi, its control effect on locust was 66.5% after 7days of application; and reached 76.7% after 12days. Azadirachtin is a bioactive substance extracted from A.indica seeds, 2days after applied 0.3% Azadirachtin, the effectiveness on locust was 95%. Application of biological technology such as N. locustae, M.anisopliae, Azadirachtin on locust control not only achieve high control effect, but also safe for human beings and livestock, no pollution to environment, therefore, protect ecological environment and reduce loss from pest.

MongoliaXinjiang Region, a vast territory from east to west, is the important base of animal husbandry in China. The pasture resources of MongoliaXinjiang Region suffer insect pests every year. Due to small size and and rarely move, Tingidae is hard to discover; but its harm to the grassland vegetation is serious. In this paper, Tingidae parasitic conditions of 43 genus belonging to 14 families were reported from MongoliaXinjiang Region, including 40 species belonging to 13 genera of Tingidae. The result showed that the Tingidae parasitic plants species were widely distributed in MongoliaXinjiang Region, some plants were parasitized by various Tingidae.
A study on development trend of golf course design in China
2009, 3(9): 216-220.
[Abstract](1991) [PDF 0KB](409)
Golf industry was consisted of golf course design, construction and management. The construction and management industries had became localized, but native golf course design industry developed slowly, only took 30 percent market share, and there were a few native professional golf course architects. This article discussed golf course design industry development of China in terms of industry organization, policy, academic research, approbation, market competition, golf competitive, golf athletics style and green keeping. The healthy development of native golf course design industry should rely on market research, intellectual property rights protection, cooperation and communication, propagandizing and education; meanwhile should pay attention to the combination with Chinese traditional culture.
The analysis and prediction of Chinese golf course development model

[Abstract](1727) [PDF 0KB](375)
Golf has been introduced to China for over 20 years. With the double stimulation of fast development of economy and the increasing of golf amateur, the golf courses built increasingly day by day in China. The primary industrial scale was formed. Along with the increase of golf courses in China, the public opinion which to the development of golf in China was also getting more and more, and many views were impractical. Based on all sorts of reasons, government policy to the golf also changed from support at the beginning to the subsequent control presently. The development of Chinese golf club was facing many questions. The paper analyzed that the development of domestic golf course nowadays pursued the models such as high specification, high scale and big area, and contrasted the Chinese golf course structure with the golf development mature country (the US).It proposed that the civilian population played more important role in the healthy development of golf in China. Moreover it predicted that China golf course would be developed with structure more rationally, and in favor of the popular golf course and practice course in future.
