Environmental preservation and protection are anticipated benefits of sustainable agriculture. It often serves as a remedy for soil degradation and other loss of natural resources. Worldwide, there is still poverty and there are individuals who don't have a full day's worth of food because of the use of chemical pesticides and fertilisers. In order to preserve our ecology and environment, this worldwide problem must be addressed. Furthermore, since soil is a finite resource, it must be handled with care to prevent deterioration. The whole chemical agricultural system is changed by sustainable agriculture. In order to address a huge growth in the human population, the green revolution was what began it all. Chemical fertilisers were used to speed up crop production, which produced an excess of food grains. However, it also requires low-income workers to borrow money and use it to purchase fertiliser and pesticides during the early phases of crop production.
