ABSTRACT
Guangdong province, as a large energy consumption province as well as a large economic province in China, is facing more and more severe pressure from reducing carbon emission. Reducing agricultural carbon emissions and developing agricultural carbon storage and carbon sequestration, will result in a brilliant future for Guangdong agriculture. In this paper, agricultural carbon emissions of Guangdong during 1991-2012 are quantitatively analyzed to discover its variation characteristics. An evident evolution law between Guangdong economic growth and agricultural carbon emissions is revealed. The evolution law showed "N" shaped curve rather than the typical inverted "U" shaped curve of EKC, and there is no indication when the inflection point will appear, which indicates that agricultural carbon pollution will be more serious with economic growth in Guangdong. Finally, some corresponding suggestions on the policy are put forward to reduce carbon emissions.
