The term ‘sustainability’ is gaining wider recognitions due to an urgent need of resource conservation and its availability in present and future without affecting environment. Today, the practices of intensive agriculture destroy land sustainability, soil quality and health of biodiversity. High intensive use of chemical fertilizers and heavy mechanizations in agroecosystem affects the land and crop productivity. These practices not only destroy the health and productiveness but also affect natural resource availability. Burgeoning populations necessitates global food requirement that leads to agricultural land expansions and intensive agroecosystem practices. These intensive practices and agroecosystem expansion leads to other resources depletions. Deforestation, illicit felling of timber, looping, industrial development, mining and other unsustainable land use practices affects our natural resources. Forest and soil are important natural resources that are interdependent to each other. There is a great links exist between forest and soil that makes a better ecosystem and environment [1,2]. No doubt, intensive agriculture enhance food productions but at the cost of environmental health. In this context, one question triggered my soul “how intensive land use practices affect environmental sustainability?” There is a two school of thought, first Intensive agricultural booms food productions but negatively affects our environment.
