Sustainable agriculture is rapidly emerging as an important discipline aimed at producing food and energy in a sustainable way for the growing human population and supporting inclusive growth and development. Sustainable agriculture is influenced by a host of social, economic and environmental factors, such as, food and fuel price movements, policies and institutions, poverty and nutrition, cultural change, climate change, water pollution, soil erosion, fertility loss, pest control, and erosion of biodiversity.
This Special Issue is aimed at soliciting original contributions from academics and researchers providing theoretical insights and/or empirical analysis, which address socio-economic and/or environmental dimensions of sustainable agriculture that can provide valuable lessons for the future. The Editor encourages submissions applying cross-disciplinary approaches and use of a variety of quantitative, qualitative and mixed methodologies in social sciences. The scope of submission includes original research and review articles that address the issues raised above.
