Farmers are the key decision makers in soil management. In their decisions, they can take into account the multiple dimensions of sustainability: monetary revenue that farm production generates; protection and enhancement of natural resources, such as soil quality; and social and cultural aspects of farming. In this chapter, we briefly discuss the approaches that can be used to understand, predict and facilitate farmers’ decision-making: economic approach; theory of planned behaviour from social psychology; and lifecycle analysis, focusing on environmental aspects of production and sustainability
assessment that integrates various aspects of sustainability.
