Abstract: The goal of this paper is to analyse the comparative study of both agricultural farming: conventional and conservation agriculture as well as determine which of these technologies encourages sustainable resource management. Unsustainable use of land resources and improper agricultural management lead to the land degradation. Consequently, it negatively affect yields, for this reason, there is need to use an approach, which maximizes the production in an environmental friendly manner at the same time without increasing the production cost. The paper presents qualitative and quantitative comparisons between conventional and conservation agriculture, including statistical and economic data. Based on the comparative analysis conservation agriculture is considered as a proper management system, which meet today’s agricultural challenges by demonstrating potential to secure sustained productivity and livelihoods improvements for millions of climate-dependent farmers. This technology is win-win situation, as it encourages sustainable agricultural development including itself environmental, economic and social values.
