Abstract

On its way of multi millennial evolution agriculture has undergone several stages all off them being organically implied in the natural ecosystem. Following the impressive development of the pesticide and fertilizer industries and the excessive utilization of chemical substances in cattle raising, after World War Two, agriculture has gained an ever increasing industrial trait and ecosystems have gradually been replaced by man-agroecosystems and the modern food system in the present. The impact of the over industrialized agriculture on the ecological balance has reached its critical point and more often point and more often than not overtook the normal man-nature relationship.
