Abstract

Increasing the desire to farm to increase income is the main goal of sustainable agriculture. The main challenges include lack of adoption of modern agricultural machinery, difficulty in obtaining capital, and poor social services in farmer households. This study proposes the development of social farming by explaining the concept of multifunctional agriculture using systems thinking which can accommodate non-linear relationships between variables to overcome these problems. The scientific contribution of this research is creating policy formulations to adopt social farming by applying the concept of multifunctional agriculture. From the causal loop diagram developed, it shows that increasing the desire to farm can be done through increasing social awareness and farmers' profit. Farmers' profit can be increased by increasing productivity and minimizing cultivation costs. Further research can be done by developing stock and flow diagrams that refer to the causal loop diagrams.
