A sustainable system integrates three main goals – environmental stewardship, farm profitability, and prosperous farming communities – to systematically address many of the environmental and social concerns of the entire food system.

Agronomists integrate concepts of soil science, plant science, climatology, and social science to consider the ways we manage our plant and soil resources as part of a larger ecosystem. By taking into account all of the interactions that support crop growth and their impacts on the environment and society, an agronomist is a "designer of sustainable systems".
