Life itself is full of risk, what to talk of agriculture. It is overall a domination of natural factors. Monsoon is a gamble for Indian farmers. It has never been a stable of phenomena in deciding and determining the fluctuating fate of farmers. Thus, farmers have been playing with the diversified fluctuating conditions of climatic vagaries of untimely, uncertainty and unequal distribution of rainfall. These characteristics of rainfall through out the monsoon regions, have determined the diversification of economy in general and enterprise systems in particular. Diversity of natural conditions, i.e. so called environment, is involved with great risk of entrepreneurs. In other words, different entrepreneurial systems are due to the diverse environmental factors, in which nothing is ensured for minimum needs without hard labor. This has changed the whole complexion of life style of the people on one hand and agricultural economy on the other, to say, it has increased the risk of ensuring exact income from the field activities. In fact, development of science and technology has widened the course of man’s life on the earth and has enhanced the quality of living organism. At the same time it has also provided better conditions for the development of bacteria, pests and insects to grow and sustain lives in million and millions causing environmental damage. The consequences are seen in a risk. The changing cropping pattern is not only the response to the science and technology but also to the changing environmental conditions harnessing the growth and development of various plants. The plants, originally find it difficult to grow in natural environment (losing grounds) but find it convenient to take root in changed conditions (more productive), more easily. Thus, the present study is an attempt to highlight some of the problems and measures of the Environmental Damage and Impact Assessment (EDDIE). The indiscriminate and increasing use of the pesticides and chemical fertilizers have invited attention of the scientists all over the world. But their effects and reactions are rarely realized at this stage by the planners in the wake of developmental efforts, causing great risk.
