In the environmental sustainability concept, this paper investigates the relationship between agricultural emission and per capita income. Additional variable is agriculture sector energy consumption. Our data is related to 1990-2010 period for 22 countries which are in the Eurasian region. Firstly, dynamic OLS and full modified OLS are applied to the data. The results show that Environmental Kuznet Curve (EKC) hypothesis is valid for agricultural emission and income. Moreover, there is a co-integration relationship between agricultural emission and both income and agricultural energy consumption. Secondly, dynamic panel GMM and dynamic OLS are applied to little modified data. Results again, imply that EKC is true for agriculture sector. Based on these results, political and intuitional regulations could be developed for environmental sustainability.
