Abstract: This paper constructed an evaluation index system of regional agri-cultural socio-ecologo-economic system based on the coupling coordination degree model from the perspective of ecological, economic and social data of provinces (cities) in the North China Plain from 2010 to 2019, and studied the coordinated development from time and space scales. The results showed that the comprehensive development level of agricultural economy, ecology and society in the North China Plain showed an upward trend of fluctuation during the study period. There was a strong coupling coordination relationship among the three agricultural systems, and the coupling coordination level rose steadily. During the study period, the coupling degree developed from mild imbalance to good coordination. The development process in each region changed from social or economic lag to ecological lag, and the deterioration of ecological environment became the main obstacle to the coupling and coordinated development of agricultural systems in most provinces.
