Abstract: Sustainable agriculture is an agenda of discussion of researchers, agricultural scientists and policy makers. Agriculture is seemed sustainable when it is economically sound, socially acceptable and environmentally friendly. Internationally, many studies had been accomplished to maintain the level of sustainable agriculture through assessment based on indicators. In literature sustainability can be measured by the selection of a standard set of indicators based on three foremost pillar of sustainability. The unclear, dynamic and heterogeneous characteristics of indicators make its application limited to the time and space. One indicator for a region may be not applicable for the other region due to the variations in climatic and geographical condition. Based on the review, this study visualizes the selection criteria and earlier proposed farm level indicators. In the context of intensified agriculture, climate variations and region’s specific conditions, we proposed theoretically based and practically applicable set of farm level sustainability indicators for Rize province Turkey. The proposed set of indicators for farm level sustainability evaluation is hoped to act as the benchmark for the initiators.
