Abstract

Problems connected with sustainable agricultural development have no clear and universal solution. Solutions are to be developed locally, building on mutually agreed principles rather than recipes. Armenian agricultural sector has quite strategic importance for the country since USSR period. One of the generated problems since mentioned period is high volume of used chemical substances, mainly pesticides. From that point in this paper we touched to the problem of finding environmentally acceptable development paths of agriculture within “economical-legalsocial- political-environmental” system.
