It will not be unfair to totally ban the use of chemicals for agricultural use. Like for human ailments and diseases, there are various streams of medicines : Allopathic (mostly chemicals), Ayurvedic, Yunani, Homeopathic etc., there is no harm if for agricultural system some alternate methods of pest control are adopted. Ideally, there should be formulation of body to regulate usage of chemicals and create awareness amongst users. Some of the chemicals like Endosulfan etc. have to be banned in totality though.
