This paper identifies new areas regarding research on sustainable agriculture, assessing the status on sustainability (environmental-social and economic aspects) of the Romanian agriculture sector. The agricultural land reform has influence on agricultural sustainability, as it led to land fragmentation, as the efficiency was not a primary concern. To understand better the sustainability, case studies can increase knowledge of the ecological importance of certain agricultural management practices and can also draw attention to rural development, to other socio-economic factors. The environmental awareness of farmers, measured by means of agri-environmental indicators is an important aspect to be assessed. The types of crops, including those that compete to food (i.e. biomass to biofuel) and the degree of fragmentation of land parcels are important factors to be considered. Also, the marginal land, and contaminated one are additional factors to research, as well as areas for policy investigation.
