dc.description.abstract <p>This dissertation is based on the journal article format with a collection of four separate papers, three of which have been published. The objective of this dissertation is to offer perspectives to contextualize sustainable agriculture in relation to two societal contexts beyond farm and watershed: (1) the developing country context, and (2) the fresh fruit and vegetables (FFV) sector (with special reference to the agri-food standard called `Good Agricultural Practices' (GAP) and Thailand). Papers in this dissertation thus aim to identify the social and ecological factors that help to define sustainable agriculture along these broader contexts.</p>
