Modern agricultural activities require a increasingly level of balance between the productive standards necessary for the food supply and the farms profitability and an equally sustainable social and environmental impact on today’s rural systems. This work aims to create a multi-level support tool, able to support both the farmers and the relevant institutions towards the most appropriate technologies, choices and solutions. For these objectives, the evaluation of all these three scales of sustainability (economic, social and environmental) characterizing the farms, can be a valid support, through the construction of a single calculation tool, scientifically accurate and territorially validated, able to identify the links between them and to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the production system.
