Some people support the developments in agriculture such as factory farming and creations of new types of fruits and vegetables, while others oppose this view. Discuss both views and give your opinions.
Nowadays, with the development of economic and the growth of population, agriculture has been paid attention by an increasing number of people. However whether agriculture should be vigorously promoted has become a debatable topic. As far as I’m concerned, the benefits brought by agriculture development overweight its disadvantages.
Those who oppose developing farming hold the view that it is unavoidable that people have to use lots of different types of pesticides in agriculture if they want to increase output. It is obvious that such practice is harmful to people’s health because most pesticides contain lots of harmful elements. In addition, the eco-balance will be likely broken as a result of lands being widely used in farming. To be precise, some forests will be cut down to make room for agriculture to some extent and subsequently ecosystem will be influenced negatively.
Nevertheless there are a multitude of obvious merits brought by faring development. It is undeniable that those who previously suffered starvation can be helped with more food output than ever. The following positive effect on the list of promoting agriculture is that if farming can be put more emphasis and then scientists will find more methods of improving eco-friendly crops with the help of more financial support. Naturally people need not to worry some new types of fruits and vegetables will threat their health.
To sum up, developing agriculture is a beneficial and harmless thing to the mankind and our society, as long as its negative effects to the environment can be minimized.
