The Characteristics of Agricultural Product Quality and Safety Crisis Based on Content Analysis Method

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 1190)

Abstract

The quality and safety of agricultural products is related to the national economy and people’s livelihood. The frequent occurrence of agricultural product quality and safety crises has drawn great attention from countries around the world. The existing studies have not yet sorted out the crisis characteristics comprehensively and systematically. In this study, the content analysis method is adopted, and the typical agricultural product quality and safety crisis events in China from 2004 to 2018 are taken as the research object. 13 abstract features are extracted to form a set of agricultural product quality and safety crisis features. Therefore, it is helpful to enrich the research results of quality and safety management of agricultural products in China and take effective measures to reduce the harm.
