The book contains 45 reviewed papers presented at the 6th International Scientific Symposium "Farm Machinery and Processes Management in Sustainable Agriculture", which took place in Noveber 2013 in Lublin, Poland. Agriculture is often considered as composed of three different systems: economic, ecologic and social. Therefore, the sustainable agriculture must be based on interlocking of three spheres; farm profitability, environmental responsibility and quality of life for farm families and rural communities. In simple terms that translates to economic profitability, environmental health and social equity. There is however a global context to sustainability; these are size and growth of population, conservation and restoration of biological base, optimization of energy output and economic efficiency. Sustainable agriculture can be the solution to those global issues by integrating all these components into a solid production system that benefits all participants.
