This article aims at showcasing and displaying how the agricultural policies might become the key factor in causing environmental instability. Using various examples from different regions and countries we show that as the demand for food is growing with the increasing population and the reduction of arable land, governments around the world are intensifying their agricultural policies. We argue that as some of these policies might be irresponsible and short-sighted, this approach often leads to the massive adverse effects such as massive agricultural pollution, droughts, famines, and degradation. In addition, we show that novel technologies (especially information and communication technologies (ICTs)) need to be used in agriculture in order to help combating global warming and climate change as well as tackling other environmental problems. All of these might help the relevant stakeholders and policy-makers to shape up the principles and blueprints for the sustainable agriculture that would correspond the principles and provisions of the sustainable development and would follow the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
