Dr. Kanwar BhanAbstract:
Agriculture remains an important occupation of people in India. It has been started to think that how we can enhance the agriculture productivity to meet the food grain demand of people. The agriculture in Haryana was comparatively traditional in mid 60’s. There was a low application of pesticides and high yielding variety seeds. In the mean time, the green revolution technology has enabled us to became self sufficient in food grains production and productivity increased manifold. It could become possible with the extensive use of pesticides, insecticides in the production of agriculture crops. Consequent to it, there was also a negative impact of agriculture development upon the environment health. The problems of salinity, alkalinity, water logging, depletion of underground water sources, deforestation aroused out. The agriculture revolution in Haryana and Punjab occurred mainly in limited crops and commercialization of agriculture started. The productivity of some crops of rice, wheat and sugarcane increased. Consequently, there has been negative impact of agriculture development upon environmental degradation. The soil resources are not rationally managed and after it ecological impact has been registered. The Intensive applications of chemical fertilizers have destroyed the nutrient balance of the soils. The present research paper focuses upon the problem of irrational utilization of natural resources. The depletion of underground water created the problem of water quality and quantity in the area. The Natural healths of soils have been influenced due to use of fertilizers and pesticides in irresponsible manner in the agriculture growth.
