Agricultural law and environmental law are two distinct branches of law. However, there are common points between the two legal spheres. Agricultural law regulates environmental protection, and environmental law regulates agricultural pollution. This in itself, however, is not a sufficient basis for a coherent legal system around agroecology. Yet there are significant obstacles to the creation of a more coherent legal framework. These obstacles are the very existence of agricultural law, on the one hand, and of environmental law, on the other, according to their construction and development, and also existing rights that might possibly be violated by “agroecological law,” and the lack of consensus for changing the dominant agricultural model. Nevertheless, agricultural law could structure its own legal framework to enable the development of agroecology, despite current opposing provisions. The current bill for the future of agriculture is pointing in this direction.
