Agriculture is an important economic activity for many people. Agriculture, on the one hand, constitutes the main source of the production of food, which is a condition for the survival of the people, and on the other hand it provides the people with a source of livelihood. Again, agriculture is being done in the environment we live in and these activities are affecting the environment due to various pressures such as the ever-increasing population, more income, more products from the unit area, and this effect is increasingly threatening human health. Because of these characteristics, agriculture is indispensable for people and it is a strategic production sector. For this reason, management of agricultural activities is of great importance. The importance of agriculture in our lives is increasing day by day and social consciousness about agriculture is developing rapidly. Thanks to technological developments, people can get information faster and easier and they are conscious about agricultural activities. People no longer prefer products derived from agricultural activities that are harmful to the environment and human health when questioning the safety of products produced after agricultural activities. Thanks to this auto control, producers are adapting their production processes to the new situation in line with these expectations. In this new process, sustainable agricultural production methods such as organic farming, good farming practices and ecological farming have emerged in order to maximize the benefits of preserving their production capabilities without damaging the resources at hand, taking into consideration the rights of future generations in agricultural production. These new approaches require the fulfilment of management function scientifically in order to achieve the goals that are aimed at sustainable agriculture.
