Introduction

Growing public interest to explore the precise meaning of agriculture sustainability has questioned our present understanding about the social, economic, and ecological impacts of farming. Our study aims to develop a concept for agricultural sustainability that integrates perceptions from college level agribusiness students. We will examine how agribusiness students weight different attributes of agricultural sustainability within the  following components: economic, internal social, external social and ecological.
