In order to deeply study the effect and mechanism of digital economy development on agricultural and rural modernization, this paper constructs the evaluation system of indicators of digital economy and modernization of agriculture and rural areas. The research draws the following conclusions: First, the development of digital economy can significantly promote the modernization of agriculture and rural areas. Secondly, when the level of scientific and technological innovation and digital inclusive finance are taken as threshold variables, the promotion of digital economy to agricultural and rural modernization has double threshold effects. With the rise of scientific and technological innovation and digital inclusive finance, its promotion shows a ladder upward trend. When the development level of rural Internet is taken as the threshold variable, there is a single threshold effect in promoting agricultural and rural modernization by digital economy. The higher the development level of rural Internet, the better the digital economy can promote agricultural and rural modernization.
