Ashok Kumar Verma*
*Corresponding Author's E-mail :


Agriculture always has both positive and negative effects on environment and social issues. Unsustainable agriculture has many negative effects that cannot be continued over long period of time. The agriculture should be practiced at sustainable level. The agriculture is more or less related with environmental ethics which deals with the studies of relation of human beings and the environment. It includes a moral consideration of human approach to natural resources and believes that human as well as other living creatures as parts of society. The environmental ethics influences the ecological balance which is ‘a state of dynamic equilibrium within a community of organisms in which genetic, species and ecosystem diversity remains relatively stable’. When a natural or human-caused disturbance disrupts the natural balance of an ecosystem then ecological imbalance is caused.
