My view have following "EXPOSED" filters with Industry. And Contextual filter of Taxonomy. So when I do asia/agriculture. %1 should be Asia and it's coming along fine. But %2 should go to Exposed Filter and it should filter out all the nodes with "agricultural" term.

Is it possible in Drupal?

Check out the Views Filter Harmonizer module. It allows you to have a contextual filter argument apply only when there is no corresponding regular (exposed) filter value present.

Here is a quote about it (from its project page):

Views Filter Harmonizer solves an operational foible with the Views module regarding filtering. Normally, when a Views field has been assigned both an exposed filter and a contextual filter, then both filters get applied to the View's results set -- always. This is not configurable behaviour. It's hard-coded.

As a consequence, contradictory search clauses easily occur, causing a counter-intuitive user experience with some White Screens of Disillusionment. Since the contextual filter sets the "bounds" for the page, any filtering by the visitor through the exposed filter on that page can only narrow down the results set, not broaden it. In other words the exposed filter appears not to be working properly.

This small module allows you to have a contextual filter argument apply only when there is no corresponding regular (exposed) filter value present.

This is most common on initial page load. After that the contextual filters will silently retreat and let the exposed filter values as selected by the visitor do their thing without interfering.

This means that you can take advantage of friendly URLs using contextual arguments instead of ugly and verbose query parameters. Put the URLs anywhere on your site, in emails and in newsletters to take visitors to tailored Views pages. Having arrived there, visitors may then further filter these pages to their heart's content using the View's regular filters you exposed. And they won't experience any odd behaviour.
