The role of agriculture as a primary sector is defined differently in different times. The importance of this kind of economic activity in the perceptions of the individual, the groups and the society is defined/determined by its role for the existence of man. The idea of agriculture in the minds of both the individual and society as a whole is evolving. Homo sapiens, as the highest biological species, develop and upgrade its ideas about the environment and change its behavior to a natural factor. In the primary sector, this behavior is of existential importance. During the years of development of the societies, the rethinking of the relation biological factor-institutional environment in agriculture is in the direction of creating synergy opportunities with a positive sign. Considering intensification of a number of crisis phenomena, the philosophy of life nowadays is changing. In agriculture, given its importance for the physical health of the population, a number of policies have changed in recent decades in order to create synergies between the biological factor and the institutional environment in which the subjects in the primary sector operate.
