With the rapid development of agricultural modernization, the loss of agricultural cultural heritage has attracted extensive attention from the international community. Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems (GIAHS), initiated by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, United Nation Development Program and Global Environment Facility, raised the concept of the term “Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems” in the international society in 2002. In the global declaration system of agricultural cultural heritage, only a few can be protected. Based on the regional and grassroots nature of agricultural cultural heritage, it is more necessary for sovereign states to play a leading role in the protection and inheritance of agricultural cultural heritage. Starting from the current situation of agricultural cultural heritage legislation in China, this study aims to improve the current central legislation and put forward improvement measures for the legal protection of agricultural cultural heritage.
