Since agriculture is now spreading to the remotest parts of the world in destructive forms, wild biodiversity has been reducing, thus undermining the sustainability of the food production system (McNeely and Scherr, 2003). As a result, operations research for natural resource management has become important in assisting farmers and extension specialists decide whether to introduce alternative practices to make agriculture more sustainable 18 Kiyotada Hayashi and in helping policy makers judge the appropriateness of policies designed to remedy agri-environmental issues.

In other words, the former is classified as a descriptive approach. Thus, there are differences among the objectives presented in the research on farmers’ descriptive behavior and the objectives discussed in this chapter.
