This paper reviews the literature on how technological innovation can enhance sustainability practice in the agricultural sector. It adopts a multidimensional perspective of sustainability that encompasses environmental, economic, and social aspects. The paper identifies four main areas of technological innovation that can contribute to sustainability in agriculture: precision farming, biotechnology, renewable energy, and digital platforms. The paper discusses the benefits and challenges of each area, as well as the implications for policy and research. The paper concludes that technological innovation can play a key role in advancing sustainability in agriculture, but it requires a holistic and participatory approach that considers the needs and preferences of different stakeholders, as well as the trade-offs and synergies among different dimensions of sustainability.
