In the supply chain of agricultural products, agricultural enterprises must apply effective supply and demand coordination to obtain maximal interests. In the age of information network, if enterprises don’t implement informatization, the efficiency of supply and demand coordination will be reduced. This paper uses examples to analyze the significant effects of information obtaining and mining ability, information integration and sharing ability to supply and demand coordination, and minimal effects of information automatic processing and monitor ability to supply and demand coordination of enterprises. The results of investigation and analysis also indicate that there exist many problems in the aspect of informatization of Chinese agricultural enterprises, this paper proposes some suggestions on optimization of informatization to supply chain coordination of agricultural products.
