An integrated rice- crawfish culture experiment was performed repeatedly in five rice fields from 2011 to 2014, and rice monoplanting was conducted in another five rice fields as the control. The results showed that profit from crawfish and rice was 87.92 million and 6.68 million for integrated models in 167km2, and profit from rice was 2.10 million for monoplanting models in 167km2. The input-output ratio for integrated and monoplanting models was 1:2.66 and 1:1.06, respectively.
