Abstract
This chapter provides insight into why sustainable agriculture is proving such an elusive concept to mobilize. The tendency, it is argued, remains for procrastination in the face of scientific uncertainties, profit-focused societies and significant disjunctures between stakeholder groups, suggesting that a move towards 'less non-sustainable agriculture' is more realistic.
