Agricultural production is based on the exploitation of biological resources (plants and animals). Their basic characteristic is the ability for renewal. Namely, since biological resources possess reproduction ability, they are considered to by inexhaustible. However, the development of civilization, innovative technologies in all human activities, current trends in growing only high-yielding species, strains, cultivars, races and hybrids, long-term unilateral selection for high productivity, development of the so-called agrotechopathies, increasing population numbers, as well as the resulting steady pollution of ecosystems have imposed the necessity for defining stable, sustainable and organic agricultural production and for determining indicators of its stability.
